Purchase of electronic charts
The Agency’s official electronic navigational charts (ENCs) are distributed through the international distribution system operated by IC-ENC (International Centre for Electronic Navigational Charts).
Further information about this organization can be found at IC-ENC.org. It is a non-profit organisation operated by a large number of countries.
The ENC products are primarily intended for commercial customers, who are required to sail with an ECDIS (Electronic Chart Display and Information System) with associated ENC, in accordance with the requirements set out in the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS).

Danish Chart Corrections
Updated navigation charts and nautical publications are essential for safe navigation. The Danish Geodata Agency therefore recommends that you keep your charts updated and always use only the latest edition of a paper chart. Danish Chart Corrections is published every Friday and describes the corrections that are necessary in order to maintain the Danish Geodata Agency’s navigation charts and nautical publications covering the waters around Denmark, the Faeroe Islands and Greenland.
