Implementation Workshop on the Global Reporting Format for Runway Surface Conditions

Virtual Event via Webex

Date & time
10/03/2021, 10:00 - 13:00 (UTC+1)

The new ICAO methodology for assessing and reporting runway surface conditions, commonly known as the Global Reporting Format (GRF), enables the harmonized assessment and reporting of runway surface conditions and a correspondingly improved flight crew assessment of take-off and landing performance.

The GRF is described through amendment 13-B to Annex 14 - Aerodromes, Volume I - Aerodrome Design and Operations; Annex 3 - Meteorological Service for International Air Navigation; Annex 6 - Operation of Aircraft, Part I - International Commercial Air Transport - Aeroplanes and Part II - International General Aviation - Aeroplanes; Annex 8 - Airworthiness of Aircraft; Annex 15 - Aeronautical Information Services and Procedures for Air Navigation Services (PANS) - Aerodromes (PANS-Aerodromes, Doc 9981), Aeronautical Information Management (PANS-AIM, Doc 10066) and Air Traffic Management (PANS-ATM, Doc 4444).

EU has already adopted Regulations (EU) 2019/1387, (EU) 2020/469 and (EU) 2020/2148 which establish the requirements for the implementation of the GRF in EU.

The GRF related requirements will apply in EU as of August 12, 2021.

The objective of the workshop is to raise awareness and support the deployment of the GRF in EU and to familiarize National Aviation Authorities and Industry (Aerodrome Operators, Air Operators, Aeroplane Manufacturers, Air Traffic Services Providers, Aeronautical Information Service Providers and General Aviation) with the EU regulatory requirements.

EASA will organize a workshop on March 10, 2021 dedicated to the industry and a second one on March 17, 2021 dedicated to the National Aviation Authorities.
