Our ENC coverage

Providing worldwide ENC coverage from a single database is our contribution to safety at sea.

PRIMAR offers a comprehensive ENC database, which is growing by the day. ENCs from our database meet IMO SOLAS chart and carriage requirements when kept up to date and used on type-approved ECDIS with appropriate backup.

We offer ENCs from a number of hydrographic offices (HOs) which are not members of the RENC as well as ENCs from IC-ENC. This means we have full coverage of the Europe, cross-Atlantic and short-sea shipping areas. We also have extensive coverage in Asia, where we are dedicated to expanding our existing portfolio.  

Our database and data collection are guided by the IHO ENC coverage catalogue, which shows existing global ENC data limits broken down by their navigational purpose.

Our coverage is illustrated in the figure below:
