ED Decision 2020/010/R

General Acceptable Means of Compliance for Airworthiness of Products, Parts and Appliances (AMC-20) — Amendment 19

The objective of Decision 2020/010/R is to provide state-of-the-art means for showing compliance with the applicable requirements with regard to the following: 

  • reporting, analysis and follow-up of occurrences in civil aviation; 
  • certification of products and parts equipped with electronic control systems; 
  • certification of in-flight entertainment (IFE) systems; 
  • certification of airborne electronic hardware (AEH); 
  • management of open problem reports (OPRs).  

These amendments to AMC-20 are expected to facilitate the certification and the occurrence-reporting processes. Overall, they would bring safety and economic benefits, and have neither environmental nor social impacts. 

In addition, Decision 2020/010/R creates a consolidated index table showing all the AMC-20 guidance issued by EASA. This is expected to increase transparency and facilitate the application of those AMCs.
