EASA publishes second report on ‘Abstraction Layer’

This second report on ‘Abstraction Layer’, delivered by the European Union Aviation Safety Agency – Federal Aviation Administration (EASA-FAA) Task Force ‘Abstraction Layer’ complements the already published report, which proposed a set of 20 criteria for the assessment of the candidate alternate standard.

This new report describes the EASA and FAA regulatory framework, proposes a way to use the Abstraction Layer (AL) within the current regulatory framework of EASA and FAA, and covers the Framework for recognition of alternate standards assessed using the Abstraction Layer.
