SUMMARY OF:

Regulation (EU) No 965/2012 — technical requirements and administrative procedures related to air operations

WHAT IS THE AIM OF THIS REGULATION?

It sets out the main rules and principles for establishing and maintaining a high and uniform level of civil aviation safety in the EU, set out in Regulation (EC) No 216/2008 and now covered by Regulation (EU) 2018/1139.

KEY POINTS

The regulation includes detailed rules for:

  • air operations with aeroplanes and helicopters, including ramp inspections* of the aircraft of another country’s operators when landed at aerodromes located in the territory, subject to EU treaty rules;
  • conditions for issuing, maintaining, amending, limiting, suspending or revoking the certificates of operators of aircraft engaged in commercial air transport operations*;
  • privileges and responsibilities of the certificate holders as well as conditions under which operations shall be prohibited, limited or subject to certain conditions in the interest of safety;
  • conditions and procedures for the declaration by operators carrying out commercial specialised operations of aeroplanes and helicopters, or when carrying out non-commercial operations, of their capability and of the availability of the means to discharge the responsibilities associated with the operation of aircraft;
  • conditions and procedures for the oversight of such operators;
  • conditions under which certain high-risk commercial specialised operations shall be subject to authorisation in the interest of safety, and on the conditions for issuing, maintaining, amending, limiting, suspending or revoking such authorisations.

It does not apply to:

  • military, customs, police or similar air operations;
  • air operations with tethered balloons and airships as well as tethered balloon flights;
  • balloons — dedicated proportionate, risk-based operational rules have been laid down in a separate regulation — Regulation (EU) 2018/395;
  • sailplanes — detailed rules for the operation of sailplanes have been adopted by means of Implementing Regulation (EU) 2018/1976.

Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/1387 introduced changes to Regulation (EU) No 965/2012 as regards the requirements for aeroplane-landing-performance calculations and the standards for assessing the runway surface conditions. It also provided an update on certain aircraft safety equipment and requirements as well as on operations that do not hold an approval for extended-range operations.

In the context of the COVID-19 crisis, the deadline for implementing these rules was postponed from 5 November 2020 to 12 August 2021, as established by Regulation (EU) No 965/2012, with the adoption of Implementing Regulation (EU) 2020/1176.

FROM WHEN DOES THE REGULATION APPLY?

It has applied since 28 October 2012.
