The Bilateral Aviation Safety Agreement

The second new BASA Schedule on Flight Simulation Training Devices will allow mutual acceptance of compliance results as well as documentation on the recurrent evaluation and qualification of full flight simulators based in the EU and the US. It will save resources, including by eliminating double assessments by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EEAS) and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). In the aviation sector too, costs will decrease: operators of flight simulation training systems will no longer be reassessed several times and these savings can be passed on to airlines that send pilots in training. Bilateral agreements and agreements allow the sharing of the airworthiness certificate for civil aviation products between two countries. In addition to the new annexes, the EU and the US have agreed to amend the DEA Maintenance Annex to allow maintenance organisations from all EU member states to participate in BASA`s safety cooperation and to confirm the highest aviation safety standards in the EU and the supervisory function of the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). Bilateral airworthiness agreements are executive agreements reached prior to 1996 through an exchange of diplomatic notes between the U.S. State Department and its foreign counterpart, based on the FAA`s technical recommendations. (Note: U.S. no longer enters into bilateral airworthiness agreements)) These agreements will ensure the continuity of agreements with the United States, Canada, Brazil and Japan when the United Kingdom leaves the European Union. CONSIDERING that each party has established, through a long practice of technical exchanges and bilateral agreements between Canada and members of the European Community (EC), that the other party`s standards and systems for airworthiness and certification or environmental acceptance of civil aviation products are equivalent to its own, in order to make an agreement possible, 4.3. Contracting parties may request the assistance of the civil aviation authority of a third country in carrying out its supervisory and supervisory functions if an authorization has been rendered or renewed by either party, by an agreement or formal agreement with that third country. Bilateral agreements facilitate mutual airworthiness certification of civilian aviation products imported and exported between two signatory states.

A bilateral airworthiness agreement (BAA) or a bilateral aviation security agreement (BASA) establishing airworthiness implementation procedures (IAP) provide for technical aviation cooperation between the FAA and its civil aviation authorities. The latest bilateral agreements are: As part of the possible reduction of the economic burden on industry and airlines through redundant inspections, evaluations and technical tests, the working procedures are a kind of agreement with a foreign CAA with which the FAA has not concluded a bilateral agreement. They are used to define methods by enabling the FAA aircraft certification service to assist another state in authorizing aeronautical products and items exported from the United States to that state.
