CHS Agreements with Jeppesen Marine

Thursday, May 28, 2009

Jeppesen Marine signed two license agreements with the Canadian Hydrographic Service (CHS) in May. The first is a CHS Value-Added Reseller (VAR) agreement authorizing Jeppesen Marine to integrate CHS products and updates into its own value-added products for the marine industry. The second agreement makes Jeppesen Marine an authorized dealer of official Canadian Hydrographic Service Digital Charts, including CHS Electronic Navigational Charts (ENCs) and BSB raster charts, and also allows Jeppesen Marine to issue CHS ENCs in type-approved SENC format.

“We’re happy that our CHS products will be available through Jeppesen Marine’s global reseller network,” said CHS Dominion Hydrographer Dr. Savithri Narayanan.  “Jeppesen Marine’s products are popular in the Canadian marketplace.  And, as long as distributors can document to us that their SENC distribution format is type-approved, they will also be able to distribute our official charts as SENCs.”

The agreement is one of a handful of value-added reseller agreements the Canadian Hydrographic Service has signed with manufacturers, allowing them to bundle CHS products and data into value-added products.  Jeppesen Marine has signed similar ENC distribution agreements with hydrographic offices in India, China, most of Europe, the United States and many other countries.  For Jeppesen Marine customers who purchase CHS charts via the PRIMAR RENC (Regional ENC coordinating center), this option will remain open.
