Airworthiness and environmental certification

 

SUMMARY OF:

Regulation (EU) No 1321/2014 on the continuing airworthiness of aircraft and aeronautical products, parts and appliances, and on the approval of organisations and personnel involved in these tasks

Regulation (EU) No 748/2012 — implementing rules for the airworthiness and environmental certification of aircraft and related products, parts and appliances, as well as for the certification of design and production organisations

WHAT IS THE AIM OF THE REGULATIONS?

  • Regulation (EU) No 1321/2014 aims to ensure that aircraft (and any component to be installed in and on them) continue to be airworthy.
  • Regulation (EU) No 748/2012 aims to ensure the airworthiness and environmental certification of aircraft and associated products, parts and appliances, and that design and production organisations are certified.

Both regulations deal with different certificates as any certificate, approval, licence, authorisation, attestation or other document issued as the result of a certification attesting compliance with the applicable requirements.The agency EASA should develop certification specifications* to facilitate the need to ensure uniformity in the application of common technical requirements in the field of continuing airworthiness of aeronautical parts and appliances.

KEY POINTS

Regulation (EU) No 1321/2014 sets out technical rules and procedures for aircraft and components to ensure aircraft, including any component for installation in or on them, continue to be airworthy, and which are:

  • registered in an EU country, unless their safety oversight has been delegated to a non-EU country and they are not used by an EU operator; or
  • registered in a non-EU country and used by an EU operator, where their safety oversight has been delegated to an EU country; or
  • registered in a non-EU country for which safety oversight has not been delegated to an EU country that are dry leased by a licenced air carrier in accordance with Regulation (EC) No 1008/2008 (see summary).

With detailed provisions outlined in various annexes, the regulation covers requirements and procedures for:

  • continuing airworthiness*, including rules relating to the relevant oversight organisations designated by EU countries;
  • maintenance* organisation approvals;
  • certifying staff qualification and licence requirements;
  • training organisation approvals, including for basic training, type training, examinations, and the ability to issue training certificates.

Regulation (EU) No 748/2012 lays down rules for the airworthiness and environmental certification of aircraft products, parts and appliances including conditions for:

  • compliance with environmental protection requirements;
  • noise certificates;
  • identification of products, parts and appliances;
  • certification of certain parts and appliances;
