• Bilateral Aviation Safety Agreements (BASA) are established to enable the reciprocal acceptance of approvals by National Aviation Authorities. The agreements outline which fields are covered, and predominantly concern airworthiness. BASAs allow the parties to the Agreement to reduce duplicated activity in areas such as aircraft design, production and maintenance and personnel licensing.  

    There are currently three bilateral agreements:

    • with the FAA (US-EU)
    • with the TCCA (Canada-EU)
    • with ANAC (Brazil-EU)
