NOAA ENC® Distributorship Requirements
|The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is promulgating certification requirements with standards for applicants who want to redistribute NOAA Electronic Navigational Charts (NOAA ENC®) as official data.
Two types of certification are offered. The first type, "Certified NOAA ENC® Distributor" (CED), covers NOAA ENC® downloading, exact copying, and redistribution of those copies. The second type, "Certified NOAA® ENC Value Added Distributor" (CEVAD), permits reformatting official a NOAA ENC® into a System Electronic Navigational Chart (SENC) using type-approved software, and distribution of that SENC. NOAA intends by this action to assure that, though redistributed, quality official NOAA ENC® data is offered to the public in support of safe navigation on U.S. waters.
