The purpose of these pages is to provide a convenient reference point for service providers and operators of various aeronautical radio stations in respect of the major regulatory requirements and associated documents.
The following links on this page provide references to various sources of requirements and CAPs relevant to each type of service and aeronautical radio station.
The following three EASA ATM Implementing Rules are relevant to ATM/ANS:
The former ATCO Directive (2006/23/EC), now replaced by the ATCO Regulation above, was repealed by the amended Basic EASA Regulation (Regulation (EC) No 1108/2009. The new Common Requirements and Safety Oversight Regulations respectively repealed their SES equivalents, Regulation (EC) 2096/2005 and Regulation (EC) 1315/2007. It is expected that now that these subjects are within the rule-making scope of EASA, further evolutions of these Regulations can be expected during 2012.
References to the earlier regulations will be removed from promulgated material, including related CAPs and web pages in due course.
For various service providers and operators of aeronautical radio stations, the regulatory requirements differ. These pages provide the main areas of interest for these various service providers across:
In addition to requirements related to safety, the various regulations also cover Capacity, Security, Economic and Quality requirements (included within the Single European Sky Common Requirements).
As EASA Regulations and Implementing Rules are developed, they will be promulgated to stakeholders either directly by EASA or by the CAA. The resulting EASA Regulations and Implementing Rules will be placed in the appropriate areas of interest on these pages. The EASA website provides details of regulatory developments.
The CAA also maintains a web page providing details of EASA Regulatory Developments.
In addition to these requirements, there are European Convergence and Safety Plans which have within them requirements to be met in certain time scales and applicable to certain ANSPs. Such plans include the European Single Sky Implementation (ESSIP) and Single European Sky ATM Research (SESAR). As these plans develop, various stakeholders and ANSPs will be engaged in consultation as to how they may be implemented.
