Update of Commission Regulation (EU) No 452/2014 (Third-Country Operator (TCO) Regulation)
AMC & GM to Part-TCO — Issue 1, Amendment 1
Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2023/659 amended Commission Regulation (EU) No 452/2014 (the TCO Regulation) to foster a risk-based approach in the authorisation process of third-country operators and improve the efficiency of the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) as the authority being responsible for the implementation of the TCO Regulation. Commission Regulation (EU) 2023/659 also clarified existing provisions, removed some inconsistencies, and improved the coherence of the TCO Regulation with the EU Air Safety List.
This ED Decision amends the acceptable means of compliance and guidance material to the TCO Regulation to facilitate the implementation of the new Regulation.
