Membership of the Association is composed of all of the global leading chart distributors
The Association provides an international forum for companies who supply, manufacture and maintain nautical charts, publications, instruments and magnetic compasses.
The Association has a long-standing relationship with the United Kingdom Hydrographic Office and has regular meetings with senior staff at the UK Hydrographic Office regarding new products, digital charting, distribution, and other topics concerning both chart agents and the end user.
The CNITA counts among its members many of the leading chart agents who can supply your requirements from a single chart or publication to a world-wide outfit and special folio requirements from comprehensive stocks in all the major ports. Carefully trained chart correctors are available to examine and correct all Admiralty charts.
The CNITA partakes in various marine industry forums to ensure that the highest industry standards are upheld and has a voice in many international committees including the IHO , for all matters hydrographic and the UKRNES - UK Radiocommunications Navigation Equipment & Standards committee . Such participation ensures that members stay abreast of regulatory change and even have an influence in the decision-making process.
CNITA members who provide Compass Adjusting services use Compass Adjusters having professional qualifications recognised in the locality in which they operate. CNITA Members can provide Compass Adjusters, who are available day and night to "swing" ships, in most major ports and elsewhere by arrangement.
