Technical advice contract


The purpose of this procedure is to lay down general requirements for the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) for performing technical advice, under a new or amended Technical Advice Contract. The activities covered by this procedure are performed by EASA on a purely voluntary basis, i.e. as a service, and shall be regulated by a contract between the EASA and the client.
This procedure shall explicitly not apply to any services and activities already covered by other processes (such as Certification Support for Validation (CSV), Outsourcing Contracts, research carried out under article 26 of Regulation (EC) No 216/2008, etc.), and to those cases where Bilateral Agreements and, where applicable, their implementing provisions require EASA to perform technical assistance upon the request of the aviation authority entitled to do so under the provisions of the Bilateral Agreement.
