UK – Bilateral Agreements Related to Aircraft Certification and Maintenance Current Status (UKCAA & EASA) – 1 Day


This one-day course focuses on UK CAA & EASA Bilateral agreements and arrangements related to aircraft certification and maintenance, as well as additional implementation procedures that cover specific issues such as design approval, production acceptance, export airworthiness approval, post-design approval activities, technical cooperation, and maintenance.

Bilateral agreements and arrangements allow the airworthiness certification of civil aeronautical products to be shared between two countries, including the form and acceptance of EASA Form 1 & UK CAA Form 1.

The technical implementation procedures for airworthiness and environmental certification (TIP) give both the CAA and EASA oversight of the Air Safety Agreement that was signed between the UK and EU in December and sets out the measures the aerospace sector must take in order to design and produce new aerospace parts moving between the UK and the EU.

From 1 January 2023, the UK will no longer be able to recognize EASA-issued certificates, approvals, and licenses for the operations and/or maintenance of UK-registered aircraft. The CAA is encouraging holders of EASA approvals and personnel licenses to begin the process of obtaining their UK equivalents.
