ECDIS software

Important notice

to all ECDIS customers



From January 2014 the latest version of the IHO standard (S-63 Edition 1.1) will become compulsory.

The permit file version number will change and all ECDIS users must use a new certificate file (IHO.CRT instead of PRIMAR.CRT) to authenticate ENC data. If the ECDIS has not been upgraded to S-63 Edition 1.1 by January 2014, they will no longer meet the IHO standards and therefore no longer be compliant.

What does this mean for the JRC ECDIS?
If you have installed the software on the ECDIS models mentioned below you automatically comply with the new S-63 1.1 standard. Please carefully check during installation if the ECDIS has the latest software installed. Legacy JRC ECDIS models not listed will not support the new S-63 1.1 standard.
