Overview
progress in negotiations
Because the U.S. and EU regulatory systems are different in several key areas, a treaty level document is necessary in Europe in order to provide a derogation from EU law.

Involves formal ratification process in Europe.

Agreement would remain an Executive Agreement in U.S. structure (not treaty level).

Progress in Negotiations
progress in negotiations4
New agreement with EU will replace bilateral agreements at the national level.

New agreement will have similar structure to a BASA…

... but will be presented together with Implementation Procedures to be ratified.

Progress in Negotiations
progress in negotiations5
Several rounds of informal discussions since October 2003

Two formal negotiations: Nov. 9-10, 2004 and April 13-14, 2005

--Next negotiation tentatively July 7-8, 2005

Progress in Negotiations
the developing agreement
Executive Agreement text largely agreed; open issues include:

Clarifying some terms such as “material, maintenance, environmental protection…”

Considering the best way to address enforcement expectations and proprietary data protection given the Community’s legal structure and role of Member States

The Developing Agreement
the developing agreement7
New items in draft agreement:

Regulatory cooperation

Formal oversight board mechanism

More detailed dispute resolution provisions

The Developing Agreement
airworthiness
Format/structure of implementation procedures under discussion.

First negotiation held June 1-3; three more negotiation sessions scheduled during 2005.

Initial meetings to focus on scope of reciprocal acceptance and concepts, e.g.

Global manufacturing

Minimizing redundant approvals—design changes, repair data acceptance, etc.

Airworthiness
maintenance
Formal negotiation schedule to be determined.

New special conditions tentatively agreed as a consequence of changes to Part 145 in the U.S. and Europe.

Current focus is on how to update current Maintenance Implementation Procedures (MIPs) to reflect these new special conditions.

Maintenance
environmental certification
Three meetings since April 2004

Agreements at latest April 20-21, 2005 meeting:

Cost and Benefits for Authorities performing single certification

Background required for environmental certification specialist

Training required for environmental certification specialist

Environmental certification assessment to be completed

Environmental certification to be included in the IPA

Environmental Certification
environmental certification11
Next Steps

Incorporate cost/benefit, training and environmental specialist education requirements in the report for an EASA decision to pursue reciprocal acceptance.

Continue to build elements for text in the IPA.

Environmental Certification
open issues
Resolution of open items from FAA’s assessment of EU regulatory system.

Execution of shadow certification projects

Licensing and Simulators: If EASA has competency in the area of flight crew licensing at the time of the final agreement, Implementation Procedures for Licensing (IPL) and Simulator Implementation Procedures (SIP) may be included as part of the agreement package.

Agreed text will need to be translated into 19 official EU languages and ratified by the European Community.
