DATA POLICY

The Task Group for the Extension of the Continental Shelf (EMEPC) has carried out a number of oceanographic campaigns, and boasts a considerable variety of important data and samples for the scientific areas of Marine Sciences, Hydrography, Geology, Geophysics, Geochemistry and Biology.

Subject to authorised request, over the years the EMEPC has provided a large amount of data to people and external entities, at home and abroad. The data and samples shared by the EMEPC may only be used for explicitly authorised purposes.

Taking into account the need to safeguard interests related to the mission and objectives of the EMEPC, which have a high value and importance for the Portuguese State, the terms and conditions under which the data or samples may be transferred and used are regulated under a liability commitment that must be signed by the applicant.

Some of the data held by the EMEPC are not eligible for sharing, as a result of which the EMEPC reserves the right not to authorise the transfer of data.
