The European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) is governed by Regulation (EC) 2018/1139, which sets out the tasks and responsibilities of the Agency.
EASA cannot provide legally binding interpretations of EU Regulations. This prerogative is reserved for the European Court of Justice and National Courts of the Member States.
Under the EU Treaties, Member States are responsible for interpreting and implementing EU law in their national legal system. For that reason, any queries concerning the implementation of aviation safety regulations within the Agency’s remit should be addressed to the respective Member State National Aviation Authority for further clarification.
