Paper chart new editions
In 2020 the Danish Geodata Agency has published 10 paper chart new editions together with a new paper chart (No. 121). All of the paper charts covering the Skagerrak, Kattegat and the northern part of the Sound are thus replaced with paper chart new editions and the new chart.

Similarly the Swedish Maritime Administration has also published new editions of its paper charts covering the Skagerrak, Kattegat and the northern part of the Sound.

The paper chart new editions and the new paper chart allows recreational sailors to deal with the major changes brought about by the routeing system. Including the changes to the navigational aids.

Electronic Charts new editions.

In general  sailors do not use the electronic charts (ENC) produced by the Danish Geodata Agency and the Swedish Maritime Administration, instead choosing to use electronic charts sourced from private chart manufacturers in conjunction with a chart plotter or via apps on tablets or mobile phones.
The Danish Geodata Agency provides regularly updated chart data to a number of these private electronic chart manufacturers. It is the private producers who decide independently when they use the Geodata Agency's chart data and control when the issue updates to their own electronic charts.

Therefore, as recreational sailor you should seek information from your supplier about when the electronic charts you use will be updated for these changes.

The Geodata Agency's paper chart no. 100 gives a good overview of all the routeing system elements in Kattegat. Although, as leisure sailor, you may usually sail on the basis of electronic charts, it can be advantageous to obtain this paper chart and possibly other paper charts.
