The US Coast Guard 2012 Annual Report to the American Bar Association mentions, amongst a wealth of information about the service's activities, that Coast Guard attorneys have facilitated the development of principles for member governments wishing to participate in IALA-NET, an AIS (Automatic Identification System).

The information sharing network would use the United States’ Marine Security and Safety Information System (MSSIS), European (HELCOM) and China maintained servers, to be incorporated into an IALA (International Association of Marine Aids to Navigation and Lighthouse Authorities) document.
