Find out which Flag States approve the use of e-NPs

e-NPs-Holdings-UKHO-700

Where the UKHO is aware that a Flag State Authority (FSA) has issued documentation on the acceptance of UKHO’s digital nautical publications, or provides guidance on their use, it lists this on its website. Please note, however, FSAs who accept UKHO’s digital nautical publications but have not issued any specific requirements may not be listed. If it is not clear whether a FSA accepts UKHO’s digital nautical publications as satisfying carriage requirements then shipping companies should contact their FSA or the appropriate RO. For more information and guidance on the safe and effective use of UKHO’s digital nautical publications, please click here.

For more information and guidance on IMO requirements on carriage of publications on board ships please read MSC-MEPC.2/Circ.2
