Paper Chart Services
NOAA-certified Paper Charts are only available for mariners from approved printing agents. NOAA only lists primary Certified Agents on our website. Each of the agents listed on our website have entered into an agreement directly with NOAA to distribute charts. These commercial partners have submitted product samples to NOAA for approval and have a counter signed Acceptance Agreement. A Certified Agent may establish networks of retailers, redistributors, subagents, and/or remote printers. NOAA has concluded that the current certified printers are meeting market needs, and that the companies with pending applications for certification will adequately fill any additional market openings. Therefore, until further notice, Coast Survey will not accept any new applications for certification, See notice posted in the Federal Register on 12/11/2020.
