Will my existing EASA design organisation approval (DOA) or alternative procedure to design organisation approval (ADOA) remain valid after December 31, 2020?
The BASA contains provisions on how design certificates and approvals issued by the UK CAA will be validated by EASA. Under these provisions, an EASA DOA/ADOA will no longer be needed to obtain a validation by EASA of a design approval issued by the UK CAA. Therefore, while EASA DOAs became invalid on January 1, 2021, said UK-based design organisations cannot exercise any longer privileges of their former EASA Part 21 DOA certificate. All future design work of UK-based design organisations should be performed under the UK CAA oversight.
