History

 

Electronic Chart Centre (ECC) was originally a maritime division of the Norwegian Mapping Authority (NMA). On 30 June 1999, we were incorporated as a state-owned company to form and operate the first regional electronic navigational chart centre (RENC) for the provision of consistent and reliable ENC services through international cooperation, named PRIMAR.
 
With our experience from developing and operating leading ENC distribution services, we have participated in the creation of relevant international standards published by the International Hydrographic Organisation (IHO) as well as of ENC service interfaces.
 
Our goal is to continue to create simple, secure and functional solutions in collaboration with our customers and partners in order to contribute to security and value creation in society.
 
These conversations will affect our priorities and strategies for the future.
