The objective of this Decision is to support the application of these two Regulations by also aligning the related acceptable means of compliance (AMC) & guidance material (GM) and certifications specifications (CS) with the latest amended ICAO SARPs in Volumes I, II and III of Annex 16 to the Chicago Convention as well as with the guidance material in the related ICAO Doc 9501 Environmental Technical Manual (ETM).
To achieve the above-mentioned objective, this Decision amends the AMC & GM to Part 21, CS-34, CS-36 and CS-CO2.
The amendments are expected to ensure a high uniform level of environmental protection and to provide a level playing field for all actors in the aviation market.
