Certification and Designation

In accordance with EU (EASA related) legislation, in particular 1035/2011, Air Navigation Service Providers (ANSPs) are required to obtain a certificate and be designated in order to provide air navigation services.

The EU legislation introduces two tiers of regulation for ANSPs:

  • the certificate, or entry ticket, which confirms the provider's implementation of safety, financial, security and quality management measures; and
  • designation, which formally nominates an ANSP to provide services at a specified location.

Further information regarding Certification and Designation can be found on the CAA’s Single European Sky web pages.
