Free and open access to Sentinel satellite data will be granted for the Copernicus operational phase.

The European Delegated Act on Copernicus data and information policy will enter into force in the coming days. This Act provides free, full and open access to users of environmental data from the Copernicus programme, including data from the Sentinel satellites.

This decision confirms the one recently adopted by ESA Member States - as current owners of the Sentinel satellites - for granting free and open access to Sentinel data. It will allow long-term continued access to data through the operational phase of Copernicus, led by the European Commission.
