Furthermore, the EUMETSAT Member States adopted the Oslo Declaration at the 67th meeting of Council in Summer 2009. The Oslo Declaration clarifies that data policy and the related on-line services are aimed at facilitating direct access to meteorological data and products on a non-discriminatory basis in compliance with relevant WMO resolutions, as well as national and international regulations. The declaration encourages further development of on-line services and expansion of graphical products made available to the public, while continuing licensing policies for the underlying digital data and products.
