Field Staff Resources

Information and resources for field staff.

Welcome to Field Staff Resources.

On this page you’ll find the resources to support you before, during and after your Antarctic season.

For webinars or video tutorials – including a how-to guide for completing Post Visit Reports (PVRs), visit the Webinar Library here.


Post-Visit Report

The Vessel Post Visit Report (PVR) is a form that should be filled out during or after each voyage by an authorized person (e.g Captain, or Expedition Leader). It must be submitted no later than two weeks after the completion of a voyage.

The PVR should be submitted to the appropriate national authority and to IAATO. Fill out the form online via the IAATO database – or you can download a copy below (excel spreadsheet) and upload manually to the database. The PVR spreadsheet can also be found in Section 02 and 04 of the Field Operations Manual.

The FOM Sync App

The FOM Sync App is the tool IAATO members can use to download the IAATO FOM onto their computers. Read our handy guide on how to install it and get started.
