Aeronautical Data Quality Implementing Rule

EC Reg. 73/2010


European Commission Regulation 73/2010 lays down the requirements on the quality of aeronautical data and aeronautical information for the Single European Sky (SES). The overall objective of this rule is to achieve aeronautical information of sufficient quality, accuracy, timeliness and granularity as a key enabler of the European ATM Network.

EC Reg.73/2010 entered into force 26 January 2010. The regulation has several phases of applicability commencing from the 1st July 2013 when all new aeronautical data and information is required to meet the legislative requirements.

Aeronautical information is made available via the Integrated Aeronautical Information Package (IAIP) that includes the UK Aeronautical Information Publication (AIP), Circulars (AIC), AIP Supplements and NOTAM, all compiled from numerous and often unique sources of data. European Commission Regulation 73/2010 focuses on data originators, and the processes that are necessary to ensure consistency and quality levels throughout the aeronautical data management chain.

The SES legislation applies to all entities originating, managing, processing or transmitting aeronautical data and information, from the point of collection or origination up to the point of publication by the National Aeronautical Information Service (AIS) provider.

Under the new concept of Aeronautical Information Management (AIM), digital data will be managed and delivered, based on commonly agreed and standardised data sets, with assured levels of quality that will support new concepts in ATM such as Performance Based Navigation (PBN) and Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS), as well as allowing more opportunity to develop innovative products.

CAA Policy

In fulfilling its legislative obligations the Aeronautical Information Management Regulation (AIMR) section of the UK CAA intends to publish a CAA publication (CAP) that includes the necessary state policy and guidance that will facilitate stakeholder compliance to the regulation.
