For ECDIS systems

To ECDIS users


From January 1, 2022 the nautical chart national folio in the form of a base data disk file “BASE Disk” will be updated in order to prevent a critical increase in the update file “UPDATE Disk”.

The smaller size of the update file will allow users to reduce communication costs and quickly upload data to ECDIS.

All users will be provided with a new “Permit” for further work with the “BASE Disk”.

From January 1, 2022 the “BASE Disk” on your ECDIS shall be reissued in order to ensure navigational safety.
