FAR 145 Repair Station Certificates (EU/US Bilateral Agreement)

How to apply


Maintenance Organisations may hold an approval from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to maintain aircraft or components for aircraft that are registered in the United States of America.

A Bilateral Agreement between the EU and the USA was signed on 3 May 2011. The Agreement means that the National Aviation Authorities (NAA’s) in Europe will undertake the oversight of organisations that hold EASA Part 145 approval and FAR 145 Repair Station Certification. The UK CAA will undertake the oversight of those organisations where the main base is in the UK.

Who can apply

Maintenance Organisations that are based in the UK and hold a valid EASA Part 145 approval
