CCP4 distributes a broad collection of software from a variety of sources, from both within and external to the CCP4 project.
The suite is available without cost to academic and non-profit institutions who will not be using the CCP4 package for commercial activities, subject to a completed CCP4 Academic License being returned to the CCP4 secretary.
A charge is made to commercial users (this includes academic or research institutions offering a commercial service) who should contact the CCP4 secretary to make arrangements, see separate Commercial Users Page. Please note that all charges for the suite are used for CCP4 activities.
- A listing of GNU software included in the CCP4 suite is available here

- The current version of the licence was made available in September 2005. This is required for existing versions of release 5.0 of the suite, release 6.0 of the suite and subsequent releases until further notice. The previous version of the academic licence is no longer valid.
