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 Bilateral 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.
Organisations must hold a valid EASA Part 145 approval
Changes must be made coincidentally to EASA Part 145 and FAR 145 approvals

to apply for a variation to your EASA Part 145 approval (see: Change an Existing EASA Part 145 Approval for further information

application and multiplying that number of hours by an hourly charge. The balance for the excess hourly charge (total
hourly charge less initial charge already paid) is payable by the applicant to the CAA and will be invoiced to the
