Use of ENCs

Our ENCs are in an electronic format which can be used in Electronic Chart Display and Information Systems (ECDIS). They can also work with other navigational systems and let you digitally layer charting information with other navigation information, such as GPS, radar, depth sounder, Automatic Identification Systems (AIS) and even sailing directions.

There are laws on using nautical charts, and you can find these on the Maritime New Zealand website.

Updates for ENCs

Updates for New Zealand ENCs are shared through our fortnightly electronic New Zealand Notices to Mariners. ENC updates are issued for all Permanent Notices to Mariners. For details of Temporary and Preliminary Notices to Mariners, mariners should consult the electronic fortnightly New Zealand Notices to Mariners booklet.

Important safety information is also included in the README.TXT file located within the ENC_ROOT folder of an ENC exchange set . It is updated on a regular basis and should be consulted before using an ENC.
