Aviation Regulations Updates

EU Aviation Rule Structure

16/07/2020   TOR RMT.0732

Article 74 of Regulation (EU) 2018/1139 of the European Parliament and of the Council (the ‘Basic Regulation’) requires the Agency, in cooperation with the Commission and the national competent authorities, to establish and manage a repository of information necessary to ensure effective cooperation between EASA and the national competent authorities concerning the exercise of their tasks relating to certification, oversight and enforcement under this Regulation. 

Considering the huge quantity and complexity of information as well as the obligation to comply with data protection requirements, the EASA Management Board decided to set up a dedicated Task Force which falls under MAB. The Task Force will focus on specifications per domains, the global architecture and the governance of the future platform.

They are displayed in a consolidated, easy-to-read format with advanced navigation features through links and bookmarks, and are available for free download from the EASA website. They contain the applicable rules on additional airworthiness specifications for a given type of operations.

EASA has committed to updating the document regularly to incorporate further changes and evolutions to the Implementing Rules, Certification Specifications & Guidance Material.

27/01/2017   EASA’s 5 year plan for Rulemaking and Safety Programme

EASA has published the 2017-2021 Rulemaking and Safety Promotion Programme which aims to provide a comprehensive and coherent vision of how the Agency intends to improve safety and environmental protection while reducing regulatory burden. The document includes the European Plan for Aviation Safety (EPAS). The Agency updates the programme every year.

A number of improvements are included in the current edition with the aim to better manage safety and address stakeholder concerns:

  • A strong strategic orientation
  • A good balanced between safety and efficiency
  • Increased efficiency of the rulemaking process
  • More safety promotion activities
  • Increasing evidence base
  • Introduction of the “cool-down period”
