Continuing Airworthiness - Part-66

Please check the following sources and consult your competent authority before contacting EASA:

EASA is not a licensing authority and therefore does not issue any licences. Part-66 licences are issued by the competent authorities of the EU Member States, plus Switzerland, Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein. The list of the National Aviation Authorities and their contact details can be accessed here: https://easa.europa.eu/en/the-agency/member-states.
Therefore, please contact directly the licensing department of the Authority of your choice or the Authority, who has initially issued your licence to submit any application queries. The Agency cannot assess any individual cases related to e.g. logbook, training certificates, recognition of experience/studies, renewal of licence(s) etc. In principle, any foreign licences cannot be converted into an EASA licence, so also for such cases we recommend contacting the Licencing Authorities.
