At its Closing Conference, held in Budapest in December 2016, the E-ARK Project issued Apache 2.0 licenses to a number of organisations associated with Digital Archiving and Preservation to ensure that the work of the Project will be sustained after the project ends on 31 January 2017.

From the outset of the project, all project partners were in agreement that all the outputs should be open and made as widely available as possible.

With the signing if these licences under the Apache 2.0, the Project Partners DLM Forum will take over responsibility for the continued development of the specifications of data formats produced by E-ARK. OPF, working with the project partners who created specifications and formats and who will continue to support them, will take over guardianship of software components produced in the project. Project Partner DPC will continue to inform and educate its member organisations about the work of the E-ARK Project to enable them to identify opportunities to improve their processes by the use of the Project's work.
