New User Guide for Copernicus Emergency Management Service

To coincide with the release of the second phase of the Copernicus Emergency Management Service (EMS), the European Commission’s DG GROW has commissioned an update to the EMS User Guide to reflect changes to service and product specifications, as well as the transition from GMES to Copernicus. This activity involved a study of user requirements and incorporated recommendations from the European Commission services DG GROW, DG ECHO, DG JRC and Member States.

Based on the findings of the study, the updated Copernicus EMS User Guide contains the following documents:

  • A High Level Brochure
  • A Service Overview Brochure
  • A Quick Start Guide: Service Portfolios for Rapid Mapping, Risk & Recovery Mapping and the Early Warning Components
  • Data and dissemination policy
  • Portal Fact Sheet
  • Service Request Forms and Feedback Forms are available on the EMS website

Copies of the new User Guide are available on request from GROW COPERNICUS EMS.
