Mutual recognition

Mutual recognition of certificates

Certificates foreseen by the Basic Regulation and its implementing rules issued by EASA, EASA Member States and organisations approved by EASA or EASA Member States, benefit from mutual recognition in accordance with Article 11.1 of the Basic Regulation.

Please be aware that the fact that a certificate has the same or a similar format to those certificates foreseen by the Basic Regulation and its implementing rules does not necessarily mean that that certificate is subject to mutual recognition, as it may have been issued by a State which is not an EASA Member State, or an organisation which was not approved by EASA or an EASA Member State. When in doubt about whether a certificate is subject to mutual recognition or not, please contact your national aviation authority or EASA.
