Cooperation between the European Aviation Safety Agency and the Inter-State Aviation Committee of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) has been intensified, addressing in particular the continued airworthiness of pre-CIS legacy built aircraft.
Extending their current working arrangement, both organisations signed at the end of January the implementation procedures for design approvals of aircraft, engines and propellers from the European Union. This agreement complements the implementation procedures for design approvals of aircraft, engines and propellers from the CIS, previously signed in 2004.
In addition both organisations agreed on an action plan to address the continued airworthiness of pre-CIS legacy aircraft operated in new EU Member States, in particular of Kamov 26, IL-76 and MI-8 aircraft.
The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) was established by the EU in 2002 and made operational in 2003 to promote the highest common standards of safety and environmental protection in civil aviation. The Agency's main tasks include the certification of aircraft and equipment as well as the approval of design, production and maintenance organisations. EASA drafts common rules and procedures in the area of aviation safety and provides technical expertise to the EU and its partners. Based in Cologne, the Agency currently employs 200 staff, a figure set to rise to over 300 in the coming years.
