FAQ n.126019

As an EU/EASA POA holder, is my DO/PO arrangement with a UK-based EASA DOA still valid after January 01, 2021?

Answer

As provided in the hereunder FAQ item, EASA DOAs in the UK became invalid on January 01, 2021.

As a consequence, any DO/PO arrangement between a UK-based EASA DOA and an EU/EASA POA holder existing before January 01, 2021 is not valid anymore.
A new DO/PO arrangement needs to be signed referring to the new UK CAA DOA.

Parts and appliances manufactured against a design approved by EASA or EASA DOA before January 01, 2021 can continue to be released by the EU/EASA POA holder, provided that such parts and appliances are covered by an updated DO/PO arrangement with the new UK CAA DOA .

Parts and appliances manufactured against a design approved under the UK regulatory system on or after January 01, 2021 can only be released by the EU/EASA POA holder if:

  1. Such parts and appliances are covered by an updated DO/PO arrangement with the new UK CAA DOA; and
  2. The design is accepted by EASA (minor changes/repairs) or validated by EASA (TSO, Major changes/repairs, STC, TC) as detailed in the Trade and Cooperation Agreement between UK and EU and the Technical Implementation Procedures between UK CAA and EASA (when available).
