ED Decision 2020/007/R

Acceptable Means of Compliance and Guidance Material to the Annex to Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 923/2012

AMC and GM to the rules of the air — Issue 1, Amendment 2

The objective of this Decision is to maintain a high level of safety for services and procedures in air navigation. 
Following the adoption of Commission implementing Regulation (EU) 2020/469 amending among others Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 923/2012 (SERA Regulation), this Decision amends the acceptable means of compliance (AMC) and guidance material (GM) to the rules of the air in order to facilitate the uniform implementation of the requirements by providing suitable tools for the regulated parties. 

The AMC and GM have been developed and consulted concurrently with the related implementing rules (IRs). The related NPAs were publicly consulted. The comments received during the consultations of the NPAs were addressed at thematic meetings. Following the assessment of the comments and the input provided at said thematic meetings, the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) published Opinions Nos 03/2018 and 03/2019. 
Based on these Opinions, the European Commission adopted Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2020/469 of 14 February 2020. 

To ensure the coherence of the AMC and GM with the text of the rule as adopted, EASA undertook the necessary adaptations. Stakeholders, who contributed to the drafting and subsequent review of that material, were consulted to ensure that there is agreement with the changes.
