Aerospace Imports from EU Eased Under New Pact
The Federal Aviation Administration reports that the U.S. and the European Union recently signed two decisions that provide greater access to aerospace markets, products, and services.
The first decision enables reductions of the EU‘s European Aviation Safety Agency fees for validation of U.S. aerospace products. This decision covers simple design modifications such as basic supplemental type certificates and the fee reductions will take effect April 8.
The second decision amends the U.S./EU Safety Agreement to remove country-specific limitations associated with aeronautical products and parts eligible for import into the U.S. This amendment treats all EU member states equally under the agreement and recognizes EASA’s oversight and standardization processes throughout their jurisdiction.
