Innovative certification

EASA performs innovative certification to ensure that aircraft and engines comply with the applicable environmental standards.

In order to adapt to novel aircraft concepts and improve the efficiency of the certification process, EASA constantly investigates new procedures to demonstrate compliance. We work jointly with industry, Member States and international aviation authorities to certify products in the most efficient manner. The verification of compliance with noise and emission standards is fully integrated into the aircraft and engine type certification process. We issue the appropriate environmental certificates (e.g. type-certificate data sheets for noise) and publish the approved EASA values in a set of environmental data.
