As a UK-based production organisation holding a UK CAA POA, can I release parts with an EASA Form-1 on or after January 01, 2021?
Since January 01, 2021, the Union law ceased to apply in the UK. 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.
Hence UK-based organisations holding a UKCAA POA do not need to, nor are allowed to release parts with an EASA Form-1 since that date.
Any potential EASA Form-1 issued by a UKCAA POA holder on or after January 01, 2021 would have no legal value (“null and void”) as an authorized release certificate.
