Your maritime digital channel
ECC is a state-owned company which provides a niche centre of expertise for the collection, quality management and distribution of Electronic Navigational Charts (ENCs) globally. ENCs are charts produced in accordance with the S-57 ENC product specification from the International Hydrographic Organisation (IHO) and authorised by national hydrographic offices.
Our vision is to contribute to greater safety, lower costs, increased user-friendliness and enhanced efficiency at sea.
Our most important job is to create services which make updated ENC information more easily available to all players in the maritime industry and the rest of society, with the primary goal of enhancing the safety of maritime services and reducing undesirable incidents in vulnerable and resource-rich coastal zones.
The focus of our work is to strenghten the "safety circle" so that ships and all players in maritime safety work together and have access to the same chart data by the development of innovative, flexible and efficient tools for the distribution of maritime digital data.
