ED Decision 2022/016/R

Aeronautical information publication — AMC & GM to the Aerodromes rules

Decision 2022/016/R issues the following amendments to the AMC and GM to Commission Regulation (EU) No 139/2014:

  • AMC & GM to Authority, Organisation and Operations Requirements for Aerodromes — Issue 1, Amendment 7

The objective of this Decision is to fully align the instructions for the origination of a SNOWTAM contained in the Acceptable Means of Compliance (AMC) and Guidance Material (GM) to Regulation (EU) No 139/2014 (the ‘ADR Regulation’) with the instructions for the publication of a SNOWTAM by aeronautical information service (AIS) providers, in accordance with Implementing Regulation (EU) 2022/938 of 26 July 2022. This alignment is necessary for the correct implementation of the ICAO global reporting format (GRF) for runway surface conditions.

This Decision amends GM1 ADR.OPS.A.057(d)(4) on the origination of a SNOWTAM. The amendment of this GM is expected to increase safety by providing accurate information that has been originated by the aerodrome operator.
