ED Decision 2020/020/R

Acceptable Means of Compliance and Guidance Material to Part-PERS — Update of the initial-training objectives for air traffic safety electronics personnel

AMC & GM to Part-PERS — Amendment 1

The objective of this Decision is to maintain a high and uniform level of safety by updating the acceptable means of compliance (AMC) and guidance material (GM) for the initial training of air traffic safety electronics personnel (ATSEP). This is achieved by regularly harmonising the training scheme and competence assessment for ATSEP with the evolving EU regulatory framework, state of the art, and recognised best practices in aviation.

This Decision amends the AMC and GM to Subpart A of Annex XIII (Part-PERS) to Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2017/373. More precisely, it updates the training objectives for ATSEP basic and qualification training syllabi and, therefore, improves the initial training content. It also introduces editorial and structural changes, provides updates of regulatory references, and makes improvements to AMC and GM that are not directly related to training objectives.

The amendments are expected to maintain safety and support providers of air traffic management/air navigation services (ATM/ANS) in developing, updating, and harmonising with EU rules their training syllabi.
