In our continuous effort to improve access to our regulatory material as well as efficiency of rule-based processes, we offer Easy Access Rules in different formats: PDF format (download the rules and access them offline), Online format (access the rules online and filter based on your interest via desktop and mobile) and XML format (download the machine-readable format).
XML Format and support
The XML format is a machine-readable format that can easily be processed and automated by recipients, producing output that can be included in local applications, search databases, etc.

EASA maintains this Easy Access Rules website to enhance public access to an updated, consolidated, and easy-to-read publication. It has been prepared by putting together the officially published EU regulations/EASA certification specifications with the related EASA acceptable means of compliance (AMC) and guidance material (GM) (including the amendments) adopted so far. Easy Access Rules (in any of the available formats) are not an official publication. Only European Union documents published in the Official Journal of the European Union are deemed authentic. (For the rules governing authenticity of the Official Journal, see Council Regulation (EU) No. 216/2013 of 7 March 2013). If errors are brought to our attention, we will try to correct them. However, EASA accepts no responsibility or liability whatsoever with regard to the information contained in Easy Access Rules.
