Application guidance for design and production organisations
European Commission Regulation (EU) No. 748/2012 determines the rules for the certification of design and production organisations. Part 21 subpart G of this regulation concerns the production of EASA aircraft and related products, parts and appliances
An organisation, partnership, Limited Liability Partnership or Sole Trader, located in the UK, that wishes to carry out manufacturing and production of aircraft or associated components that are used for commercial air transport.
Organisations located outside the UK, including the Channel Islands, should apply directly to EASA
Please Note: Organisations needing to change a Registered Company or Limited Liability Partnership (LLP) Number will require a new initial approval as it cannot be classed as a change to an existing approval. See CAP 562, Leaflet C-30 for further information.
Organisation approvals are non-expiring, however this is subject to a continuation recommendation every 24 months from the date of issue. This is raised by the CAA Surveyor following a satisfactory audit programme.
