On 05 June 2022, NAVCEN will transition our website to a new version that will provide greater functionality and aesthetic appeal across all devices, ranging from desktop computers to cell phones. This change is planned for the first quarter of 2022, and will necessitate that we change individual page URLs, including those used in automatic downloads of our products. Our primary URL,, will stay the same.

Steps to prepare for the upgrade in June: 
·         Mark the change on your calendar for 05 June 2022 
·         Follow NAVCEN on Facebook for the most up to date launch information:  ·         Email for any questions before launch day 
·         After launch, update all bookmarks, as all new URLs will be active on the new site 

Our outreach team will work with you to ensure your transition is as seamless as possible. If you are a subscriber to any of our GovDelivery email lists, you will receive information regarding the migration via those lists
Thank you for your continued patience as we move forth with this transition to improve your experience and to provide you with better and more timely maritime safety information.
