EASA Brexit Update 21 December 2018

On 19/12/2018 the Commission has adopted two measures that will avoid full interruption of air traffic between the EU and the UK in the event of no deal. These measures will only ensure basic connectivity and in no means replicate the significant advantages of membership of the Single Aviation Market. This is subject to the UK conferring equivalent rights to EU air carriers, as well as the UK ensuring conditions of fair competition. 

  • A proposal for a Regulation to ensure temporarily (for 12 months) the provision of certain air services between the UK and the EU.
  • A proposal for a Regulation to extend temporarily (for 9 months) the validity of certain aviation safety licences.

This second proposal provides the validity extension of the following safety certificates and approvals:

The following certificates issued by EASA to natural or legal persons having their principal place of business in the UK shall remain valid for 9 months from the date of application of the Regulation:

  • Type certificates and restricted type certificates,
  • Approval of changes to type certificates and restricted type certificates,
  • Supplemental type certificates,
  • Approval in respect of repairs,
  • European Technical Standard Order authorisations,
  • Design organisation approvals.

The following certificates issued by any natural or legal persons certified by the competent authorities of the UK concerning the use of products, parts and appliances shall remain valid:

  • Authorised Release Certificates for products, parts and appliances,
  • Certificates of release to service in respect of completion of maintenance,
  • Airworthiness review certificates for ELA 1 aircraft,
  • Certificates of release to service on completion of maintenance,
  • Airworthiness review certificates for ELA 1 aircraft,
  • Airworthiness review certificates and extensions thereof.
