ICAO Council regularly adopts new Standards and Recommended Practices (SARPs) in the Annexes to the Chicago Convention (e.g. Annex 8 ‘Airworthiness of Aircraft’, Annex 6 ‘Operation of Aircraft’ and Annex 19 ‘Safety Management’), which may need to be transposed in Commission Regulations (EU) No 748/2012 and (EU) 2015/640 and the associated acceptable means of compliance (AMC) and guidance material (GM), as well as CS-26 as relevant for the newly adopted SARPs and as reflected in the dedicated subtask as described in the EPAS.
The objective of this RMT is to maintain and increase the level of safety and ensure the recognition in 3rd countries of certificates issued i.a.w. the above Regulations by transposing ICAO SARPs. This will be done after an assessment of the changes proposed by ICAO. This RMT is a permanent vehicle to address newly adopted airworthiness SARPs, except those related to continuing airworthiness.
