The P6/11 Format Description was originally released in 2012 (version 1.0), alongside similar documents for its companion formats, the P1/11 and P2/11 (both also version 1.0). These formats replaced legacy UKOOA (UK Offshore Operators Association) formats P1/90, P2/94 and P6/98.

The P1/11 and P2/11 were revised to version 1.1 in April 2015. The p6/11 has now been revised (also to version 1.1) in response to those changes in the P1/11 and P2/11 formats, with which it shares common elements.

The revision of P6/11 introduces enhancements to the format and improvements to the documentation incorporated as a result of feedback from industry.

The Geomatics Committee has published a P6/11 User Guide  which supports this P6/11 Format Description document.
