A new service for WMO Members

In 2009 ECMWF introduced a new licence specifically designed for non-commercial use by the National Meteorological and Hydrological Services of WMO Members. The service gives access to an extensive range of ECMWF forecast products and to the ECMWF archive for an annual fee. See here for details.

Access Conditions

All "essential" products are for unrestricted (including commercial) use. For the use of the "additional" products, please read the Conditions for ECMWF products according to WMO resolution 40 (CG-XII).
