Minimize Registration

The free, full and open data policy adopted for the Copernicus programme foresees access available to all users for the Sentinel data products, via a simple pre-registration.

Who needs to register:

Registration is open to all users via simple on-line self-registration accessible via the Copernicus Open Access Hub.

Following registration, the user can immediately download Sentinel products generated systematically from all acquired data. Please note that depending on the mission and the acquisition time of the product, the full operational qualification may not yet be completed.

Member States requiring data for national initiatives in the frame of the Sentinels Collaborative Ground Segment. Copernicus Services members and European Institutions, as well as Collaborative Ground Segments need not register on this service, they are served via dedicated access points.
