The ENC solution for the professional mariner
The Jeppesen PRIMAR ECDIS Service is composed of official ENCs, supplemented with high-quality vector charts produced by Jeppesen when ENC coverage is not available. The product includes extensive coverage of ENCs from national Hydrographic Offices, ensuring easy access to worldwide coverage of the most authoritative chart data available.
PRIMAR ECDIS Service is authorized and complies with all official regulations and requirements related to distribution and usage of official ENCs. An approved ECDIS combined with ENCs from Jeppesen PRIMAR ECDIS Service makes paperless navigation possible according to flag state approval. It is important to note that vector charts from Jeppesen should only be used as a navigational aid, and does not replace the need for paper charts.
The Jeppesen SENC format
The ENCs are converted by Jeppesen to SENC format type approved by DNV, preventing a time-consuming and risky data conversion on board. The main benefit of the Jeppesen SENC format is that installation and updating can be carried out in a fraction of the time compared to other formats. The worldwide database is distributed on one single DVD.

Jeppesen ENCs can be licensed in three ways: Direct, Dynamic (Pay-Per-View) or OpenENC (Pay-As-You-Sail). For details on licensing and updating please see the Licensing page.
