FAQ n.123566

As a UK-based production organisation, do I need to hold an EASA POA (as Third Country Approval)?

Answer

As per the Trade and Cooperation Agreement between the UK and the EU published on December 31, 2020 by the European Commission and provisionally applicable as of January 01, 2021, in particular Section E of ANNEX AVSAF-1, the EU recognises the POAs issued by the UK CAA.

Therefore, there is no need for UK-based organisation to hold an EASA Third Country Production Organisation Approval. Consequently, EASA has not issued any Third Country POA for UK organisations and as such, there is not any valid EASA.UK.21G.XXXX approval.
