NPA 2022-104

Postponement of the requirements for locating an aircraft in distress

The objective of this Notice of Proposed Amendment (NPA) is to ensure a smooth implementation of means to locate large aeroplanes when they are in distress.
NPA 2022-104 proposes to amend the applicability dates of point CAT.GEN.MPA.210 ‘Location of an aircraft in distress — Aeroplanes’ of Annex IV (Part-CAT) to Regulation (EU) No 965/2012 (‘Air OPS Regulation’), following the postponement of the applicability dates of the related Standards and Recommended Practices (SARPs) in International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) Annex 6, Part I.
The proposed amendment is expected to reduce regulatory burden and to incorporate related ICAO SARPs.
