An agreement between ECMWF and MÉTÉO-FRANCE for the access and use of the jointly developed and maintened NWP software "IFS/ARPEGE" was signed in 1998.
The reference to this software agreement between ECMWF and Météo-France grants to ALADIN Partners access to the necessary parts of the IFS code for their limited area NWP work.

In September 2016, this agreement was amended to take into account the HIRLAM Partners, the convergence process of the ALADIN and HIRLAM consortia, and to update the lists of software codes in annexes.
