EASA’s First eRules Publication Available

On Jan. 20, the European Aviation Safety Agency’s (EASA) eRules project issued its first publication, “Easy Access Rules for Continuing Airworthiness.”

The EASA eRules project is being implemented in close cooperation with the agency’s member states and industry organizations. It aims to be a comprehensive system for the drafting, sharing and storing of rules – a single source for regulations applicable to European airspace users. In addition to online access, the project will attempt to implement improvements to the rulemaking system through automation, consultation and international comparisons of regulatory regimes.

Easy Access Rules for Continuing Airworthiness” was developed in 2016 as part of the first of ten modules planned for the project. It is organized to present each implementing rule along with its related guidance material. It covers all the annexes of Regulation (EU) No 1321/2014 (e.g. part-M, part-145, part-66, part-147, part-T) and offers advanced navigation features through links and bookmarks as well as identification of General Aviation alleviations.

As part of the eRules intitiatve, EASA will update the document “within a short time” or rule or supporting material amendment. In 2017, the agency will work on the second eRules module, which will include initial airworthiness and airports.
