The Jason Continuity of Service (Jason-CS) optional programme of EUMETSAT entered into force on 9 September, based on the subscriptions from 12 Participating States (Austria, France, Germany, Iceland, Italy, Luxembourg, The Netherlands, Portugal, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey and the United Kingdom). More EUMETSAT Member States are expected to join the programme in the next 12 months to bring the level of subscriptions from 90 to 100%.
