Regulations and More!

We could ask the question: "Why do we need regulations?" but, of course, the answer is obvious: we need regulations to protect our industry, employees, and passengers. Plus, it is essential to have a consistent way of controlling the way we do “what we do”.

Where do Regulations in Aviation come from?

Well, EASA is not the root of this regulation story, the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) is!

In response to the invitation of the United States Government, representatives of 54 nations met at Chicago from November 1 to December 7, 1944, to "make arrangements for the immediate establishment of provisional world air routes and services" and "to set up an interim council to collect, record and study data concerning international aviation and to make recommendations for its improvement."

In order to ensure a smooth transition and a high level of civil aviation safety in the European Union, Implementing Rules should reflect the state of the art, including best practices, and scientific and technical progress in the field of air operations. Accordingly, technical requirements and administrative procedures agreed under the auspices of the International Civil Aviation Organization (hereinafter referred to as “ICAO”) and the European Joint Aviation Authorities (hereinafter referred to as “JAA”), as well as existing European and national rules, should be considered.

The introduction of Part OPS Regulation 965/2012 was a huge undertaking pulling together not only Commercial Air Transport – CAT but all the different arrangements related to operation of aircraft including Commercial other than Non Commercial, Helicopter, Aerial Work and other Specialist Services.
