The charges for services are based on the real costs of the Agency and on the number of hours spent. All EASA services are charged by the hourly rate i.a.w. [sheldsi1] Chapter III of Regulation (EU) 319/2014 and Part II of its Annex.
There are two hourly rates:
- Part II.1: one (higher) hourly rate is charged for services that are related to certification tasks, such as MRB, CSV, OEB etc. and it is charged in the same way as certification tasks. Travel costs are charged similarly, meaning for travels outside Europe only.
- Part II.2: The other (lower) hourly rate is related to pure services, such as Technical Advice Contracts (TAC). Travel costs inside Europe are therefore charged.
