EASA Regulatory Developments (1/2)



EASA Regulatory Developments (1/2)
Staying Current with
Regulations !
October 2015
Head, Operational Costs
Management, IATA
E-Maintenance Records and E-Signatures
Regulatory basis exists – need for timely & flexible evolution
FAA – AC 120-78
(Acceptance and use of e-signatures, e-recordkeeping, and e-manuals)
 TC – AC 571-006
(E-signatures and e-exchange of the Authorized Release Certificate –
Form One)
 FAA Form 8130-3 and EASA Form 1 with dual release and e-records
(FAA-EASA Maintenance Annex Guide to US-EU Bilateral Agreement)
Industry Standards – growing & maturing for business use
ATA – Spec 2000 and Spec 42
( e-Business Specification and Aviation Industry Standards for Digital
Information Security)
Aviation Stakeholders to build the aviation e-ecosystem
IATA supports awareness & innovation towards an Aviation
Identification and Authorization System
( see AIAS whitepaper @ www.iata.org/PAO )
ICAO’s AIRP Develops Change Proposals
Approval and global recognition of AMOs
Develop provisions for harmonization of global recognition and AMO
approvals as well as guidance material to support implementation
Will level the regulatory requirements for CAA approval and oversight
of AMOs
Will ensure “global portability” of the approvals, lessen the multiapproval burden for AMOs, pooling of audits, avoid duplication and
support MRO business interoperability
Transfers the AMO requirements from Annex 6 to Annex 8
All EASA Part-145 Organizations would benefit from
Electronic Aircraft Maintenance Records
Develop guidance for CAAs to accept and allow usage of aircraft
maintenance e-records
Needs buy-in and active implementation from all players (i.e. airlines,
OEMs, MROs, lessors, MIS solution providers etc.)
Will improve airworthiness compliance control and monitoring, facilitate
business and reduce costs on-long term for all aviation stakeholders
EASA Regulatory Developments (1/2)
Third Country Operator
Ramp Inspection Program
EU Ramp Inspection Program = SAFA + SACA
SAFA for aircraft used by third country operators
SACA for aircraft used by operators under another EU Member State
47 Participating States (NAAs) in a program consisting of 53 (ramp) inspection items
EASA is coordinating with each National Coordinator of the Participating States
EASA is the custodian of a Centralized Database for Inspections and Findings
Regulatory basis in Air Ops – Annex II (Part ARO) Subpart RAMP
EASA Regulatory Developments (2/2)
Third Country Operators (TCO)
Single/unique safety authorization valid in 32 EASA Member States (replacing individual
state schemes)
Required also for Operating in territories under the 32 States jurisdiction (e.g. French
Guyana, Reunion, Saint-Martin, Canary Islands)
Implementation started under Part-TCO as of May 26, 2014 - with 30 months transition
(mandatory compliance by Nov 26, 2016)
 EASA (free) validation of the foreign AOC is risk-based and could go from desktop review
(fast track) to technical meetings and interviews (for low confidence Operator)
 Linked to the European “Safety List”
(see scenario info @ http://easa.europa.eu/the-agency/faqs/third-country-operators )
SMS to be introduced by EASA in phased approach
Phase I with SMS requirements for CAMO – Opinion expected beginning 2016 (based on
NPA 2013 – 01; relief for CAT operators to fully contract CAMO outside their AOC)
Phase II with SMS requirements for Part-145 organizations – new NPA expected in 2017
(thus delayed SMS introduction for MROs although initially included by NPA 2013-01)
IOSA and Its MNT Segment
IATA Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) – Role & Growth
Prerequisite for IATA Airline Membership and standard
for many non-IATA Airlines (based on ICAO SARPs)
Avoid costly multiplication of airline audits and provide
recognized solid base for concluding inter-line
Section 4 of the ISM is the audit segment for Aircraft
Engineering and Maintenance (MNT)
MNT dedicated TF focusing on
Maintenance Management and
Control, Technical Records,
Maintenance Org.
The “Enhanced IOSA”
(mandatory as of Sep 1, 2015) to
ensure airline continuous
conformity by focusing on
implementation of ISARPs
Full compliance with SMS
provisions mandatory from 2016
(as of Sep 1, 2015)
