Technical cooperation explained

In addition to its core tasks in Europe, EASA works internationally to promote aviation safety.

EASA provides technical assistance to countries and regions around the world, aiming to improve the regulatory and oversight capabilities of national and regional aviation authorities.

To this end, EASA designs and implements major civil aviation cooperation projects, working hand-in-hand with the European Commission.

Such technical cooperation projects are usually of a duration of around three years and are, in their majority, funded by the EU. They are implemented in close cooperation with the local authorities and stakeholders.

Some examples of activities carried out in the context of such projects are:

  • Drafting ICAO-compliant safety regulations
  • Delivering training for authority inspectors
  • Designing tools for effective safety oversight

EASA can provide technical expertise across all aviation domains and works hand in hand with its European partners, including industry, to bring practical and sustainable solutions.
