I spent much of oct/nov 2010 in Canary, departed Las Palmas late Nov with ARC. Honestly they don't care. No one will inspect your boat for "safety" issues. Charts, well I do not carry paper and most the people I run into are like me and only care the big picture paper charts as to buy all the paper and electronic to cover all areas is just cost prohibitive. Worry not, just go and enjoy.
If you go north toward Gibraltar spend a few days in Mohammedia Morocco. Great place and very friendly. Oh ya, they also could give a rats ass about credentials. In the past two plus years sailing France, Italy, Croatia, Greece, Spain, and Africa never once was I asked for credentials. Always asked for passports, boat doc., and insurance papers
