Potential false claims of EASA approval

The European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) has been made aware that, in the current situation of the Coronavirus crisis, some manufacturers are falsely claiming that equipment has been approved by EASA for use in aviation and for the specific purpose of reducing the risk of the virus spreading.

We would advise any parties in the aviation industry who are considering the purchase or use of such equipment to exercise caution if they are contacted about new products, presented with the information that equipment is EASA approved and have reason to suspect that the claim is false.

Details of EASA approved equipment are published on our website: ETSO Authorisations
