The European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) has signed an implementation procedure for the EU-Japan Bilateral Aviation Safety Agreement (BASA) agreed between the European Union and Japan. The procedure signed with the Civil Aviation Bureau of the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism of Japan (JCAB) will facilitate the validation of airworthiness certificates on aeronautical products between the EU and Japan.
The Technical Implementation Procedures (TIP) commenced on July 9, 2020.
This represents a major milestone in the relationship between the two parties and allows for a provisional application of the EU-Japan BASA which was signed on June 22, 2020.
Further communication on the details of the TIP will be made available to industry in the coming weeks.
