ED Decision 2023/007/R

Helicopter emergency medical service performance and public interest sites

The objective of this Decision is to facilitate the implementation of the new requirements introduced into Regulation (EU) No 965/2012 (the ‘Air OPS Regulation’) by Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2023/1020 (the ‘HEMS Regulation’).

The amendments introduced by the HEMS Regulation and the acceptable means of compliance (AMC) and guidance material (GM) introduced in this Decision will modernise the European Union (EU) aviation regulatory framework applicable to helicopter emergency medical services, and are expected to increase safety and foster efficiency and proportionality, while keeping the economic impact on HEMS operators at a minimum.
