France: The French Hydrographic Office (SHOM) stopped updates effective March 18 to its products until further notice, including Notice to Mariners, SNC New Editions and ENC updates. France will use navigational area warnings to issue the most critical navigational information. Caution is advised when navigating using products from admiralty services that use French data.
