Some of the equipment produced by our company has FAA approval and some equipment does not. For the FAA approved equipment, can you confirm that our company can send an application to have the FAA certification accepted by EASA?
It is acknowledged that there is an agreement between the USA and the EU on cooperation in the regulation of civil aviation safety (i.e., via a Bilateral Aviation Safety Agreement (BASA)). However, there currently is no Technical Implementation Procedures (TIP) for ATM/ANS equipment in place to allow direct acceptance/recognition of FAA approvals/certificates. However, data that was used to obtain the FAA approval may be “re-used” by any natural or legal person who has demonstrated, or is in the process of demonstrating, their design capability (i.e. as an approved DPO) should they elect to apply for the issue of an ATM/ANS equipment certificate or wish to declare a design compliance.
