For most major shipping routes, crews using AVCS may navigate with electronic chart display and information system (ECDIS) for their entire voyage.

AVCS includes 2,950 of the largest and busiest ports globally, of which AVCS offers unique coverage for over 200.

UKHO certificates bearing the ship name and licence expiry date are provided to all ships with AVCS installed.

Example Port Folios Mariners have the option to hand-pick single ENC chart coverage that is needed to meet the specific requirements of the mariner's Fleet to ensure exact coverage of the shipping routes.

All ENCs in the Admiralty Vector Chart Service can be picked on a chart-by-chart basis as individual ENC cells.

These cells are the smallest electronic chart data unit of sale allowed by ENC producers and typically have ENC data approximately equivalent to a nautical chart.

Mariners can combine AVCS Folios selected with individual ENC cells for unrivaled coverage and complete voyage flexibility.

This certificate confirms that all the chart carriage requirements of SOLAS Chapter V are met when using ENCs in AVCS.

Additionally, the UKHO certificate is provided as a digital file that may be printed or viewed through ADMIRALTY e-Navigator Planning Station, which often aids in expediting local flag state and port inspections.

When using ENCs designated for official coverage, ships may navigate on ECDIS for the entirety of most voyages following major routes using a single chart service.

Coverage waters include Taiwan, Thailand, United Arab Emirates, Hong Kong, Vietnam, Indonesia and the Malacca Strait.

Automatically, new ENCs are added to folio holdings as soon as they become available, ensuring that ships always have the up-to-date data reflecting their chosen level of coverage.
