FAQ n.19508

ADR.9 Is it the case that only Member State authorities undertake audits and issue certificates or is it planned that EASA will do such audits in the aerodrome domain, like those done by the EU Commission for aviation security?


As of 2018 when the transition period has ended, the team of standardisation officers of the EASA aerodrome section will undertake standardisation visits to the Member States and their competent authorities covering the domain of aerodromes. In the context of such a standardisation visit, some (1-2) aerodromes in the visited Member State may be visited to better understand the interactions of the authority and the aerodrome operator with respect to certification and oversight.

However, EASA would not raise findings against the aerodrome operator. The addressee of the standardisation visit remains the Member States and their authorities.
