Easy Access Rules for Air Traffic Management/Air Navigation Services (Regulation (EU) 2017/373)

Revision from July 2021
ATM / ANS Easy Access Rules

The Revision from July 2021 contains the applicable rules for Air Traffic Management/Air Navigation Services (ATM/ANS) displayed in a consolidated, easy-to-read format with advanced navigation features through links and bookmarks.

It incorporates ED Decision 2021/008/R introducing an acceptable means of compliance (AMC) to Annex VIII (Part-CNS) to Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2017/373. Both the currently applicable version of the Easy Access Rules for ATM/ANS and the one applicable as of 27 January 2022 are updated with the new provisions for providers of surveillance services. More precisely, the new AMC includes the conditions that apply to surveillance providers providing the transmission service for locating an aircraft in distress. The amendments are expected to improve safety as they will facilitate locating an accident scene, increasing the chances of rescuing accident survivors, and accelerating the collection of evidence for determining the accident causes.

Please see the 'Publications' section for all Easy Access Rules:

  • Applicable as of 27 January 2022: Easy Access Rules for Air Traffic Management/Air Navigation Services (Regulation (EU) 2017/373)
