The James Webb Space Telescope (JWST )will open a
new area in the domain of exoplanet atmosphere
characterizations  and  will  require  accurate  
models  to  interpret the observations.  In this context,
we propose a protocol to compare various atmospheric
codes,  to identify and discuss the significant
differences in the results and to help the codes evolve
to become as consistent as possible.  We applied this
protocol on 3 forward models and one retrieval.  We updated
them to account for the major differences and we are now
able to identify the remaining differences observable with
the JWST.
