Rules and regulations are the core of the European Union civil aviation system. The aim of the EASA eRules project is to make them accessible in an efficient and reliable way to stakeholders.
EASA eRules will be a comprehensive, single system for the drafting, sharing and storing of rules. It will be the single source for all aviation safety rules applicable to European airspace users. It will offer easy (online) access to all rules and regulations as well as new and innovative applications such as rulemaking process automation, stakeholder consultation, cross-referencing, and comparison with ICAO and third countries’ standards.
To achieve these ambitious objectives, the EASA eRules project has been broken down in 10 modules. Module 1, ‘Continuing Airworthiness’, was completed in 2016. The first deliverable, ‘Easy Access Rules for Continuing Airworthiness (Regulation (EU) No 1321/2014) ’, is published in PDF format. In 2017, Module 2 will include Initial Airworthiness and Aerodromes rules as well as new database functionalities. Online access to the database is planned for 2018.
The EASA eRules system is developed and implemented in close cooperation with Member States and aviation industry to ensure that all its capabilities are relevant and effective.
