For more information about the use of paper charts in Australian waters, see Paper Charting Information. Sold As Australian Indexes of paper nautical charts are available in paper form and as an interactive on-line catalogue.
The online catalogue, known as the Australian Chart Index , contains information up-to-date to the latest published Australian Notices to Mariners Edition. Aus and SLB charts included provide coverage of major shipping routes and commercial ports. Aus and SLB charts which are not reproduced by the UKHO are not listed in their catalogue but the limits are shown on the face of their reproductions. Updates It is extremely important that all chart users keep their paper charts up-to-date for the latest safety-critical information.
It is necessary to meet chart carriage regulations and to keep your vessel and all onboard safe. The relevant notices can be found on the Notices to Mariners section of this website or can be supplied automatically, via the eNotices subscription email service. Austcoast warnings are broadcast to mariners operating within Australian waters by AMSA across the Coast Radio Network, when new safety-critical information is too urgent to wait until the next fortnightly Australian NtM edition release.
Paper charts are also updated by incorporating all the changes in a new edition. These are produced when substantial new survey or other information is received of a size too large to promulgate via Permanent Notice or a Block update.

Additional Information Accuracy and Reliability of Charts All charts whether paper or electronic, contain data which varies in quality due to the age and accuracy of the individual hydrographic surveys that the data is founded upon.
Zones of Confidence ZOC Diagrams are depicted on all Australian published nautical paper charts to warn mariners which parts of the chart are based on good or poor information and which areas should be navigated with caution. Mariners should acquaint themselves with the meaning of these categories before heading into unfamiliar waters.
To summarise the categories, mariners should be able to navigate with confidence in areas with ZOC A1 and A2 classifications.
It is also unlikely that an uncharted danger exists in ZOC B areas. In ZOC C areas mariners should exercise a degree of caution since hazardous uncharted features may be expected, particularly in reef and rocky areas. More caution is required for areas with upright or approximate soundings than for italic soundings.
ZOC D contains very sparse data and may not have been surveyed at all therefore mariners should enter with extreme caution.
