Each country produces data for its own area of jurisdiction, i.e. the internal waters, coastal sea, and continental shelf.
It is the purpose IHO's WEND concept (Worldwide Electronic Navigational Chart Database) to establish a network of standardized ENCs meeting the requirements of international maritime transport.

In Europe, two Regional Electronic Navigational Chart Coordinating Centres (RENC) exist presently which receive ENCs from the national hydrographic services, fit them into the total body of data, and distribute them to the end-users via authorized distributors.
