Additionally, seven employees of the ICES Data Centre joined the meeting for rele-vant agenda items. HELCOM was also represented at the meeting.WGDIM’s mission statement is "To provide ICES with advice on all aspects of data man-agement including data policy, data strategy, data quality, technical issues and user-oriented guidance."Strategic documents: WGDIM reviewed the strategic ICES documents on data: data strategy, data policy and user engagement plan. It was decided that the user en-gagement plan in its current format is not relevant any more. The data strategy was updated in 2010 but not implemented. WGDIM made minor changes and will stimu-late ICES to implement the strategy. The ICES Data Policy was also reviewed and WGDIM decided to work intersessionally on this document in order to finalize an updated version at WGDIM 2012.
