Article 4 of the Basic Regulation requires the Agency to take the responsibility for the design approval of products, parts and appliances designed, manufactured or used by persons/organisations under the regulatory oversight of the 28 EU Member States, Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein or Switzerland, except for those excluded by its Annex II or by its Article 1.2. (products engaged in military, customs, police or similar services).
As a consequence, the Agency's responsibilities for design related activities (Type-certificates, supplemental type-certificates, approval of changes and repair design, and other post type-certification activities, including airworthiness directives) include now the following:
- Products with type-certificates issued by EASA as of 28 September 2003 in accordance with Commission Regulation (EU) No 748/2012.
- Products with type-certificates issued by the EU Member States which are deemed to have been issued in accordance with Commission Regulation (EU) No 748/2012.
- Products with specific airworthiness specifications issued by EASA in accordance with the Basic Regulation, to support restricted certificates of airworthiness.
The [EASA] Type Certificate Data Sheets which are referenced in the lists are the sources to be used for information. Whilst every care has been taken in preparing the contents of the above lists to avoid errors, the Agency makes no warranty as to the accuracy, completeness or currency of the content. The Agency shall not be liable for any kind of damages or other claims or demands incurred as a result of incorrect, insufficient or invalid data, or arising out of or in connection with the use, copying, or display of the content, to the extent permitted by European and national laws. The information contained in the lists should not be construed as legal advice.
Annex II aircraft
In the past, EASA produced a list of Annex II aircraft, strictly for information purposes only. This publication is now discontinued, as the full range of products for which EASA has responsibility (see files above) has now been identified. These files will be updated, as and when necessary, thereby obviating the need for a list of aircraft for which EASA has no responsibility. Consequently, the list of Annex II aircraft has been removed from the EASA website.
EASA will retain the information on past decisions to classify certain types and models as 'Annex II' and that information will be provided by EASA, upon request.
Please note that another possible reason (i.e. other than having been classified Annex II) that a type design cannot be found in the lists provided above is that the type has not been validated in Europe. In case of doubt, contact your National Aviation Authority.
