Portugal became the fifth member of NAHEMO signing the MoU on 21 June 2001. At the same time, NAHEMA and NHlndustries signed the production contract for the 10 NH90 helicopters required by Portugal.

The Nordic Countries, although being supported by NAHEMA, remained outside NAHEMO/A at their express wish. They have gathered their interests in the NHSP Office (Nordic Standard Helicopter Program) which is currently being relocated from Stockholm to Aix-en-Provence. Three additional staff members are sponsored by the NHSPO in order to account for NAHEMAs additional workload.

Greece albeit being a NATO member does not participate in NAHEMA.
