Quick Question: Brexit Impact

The prospect of the UK’s departure from the European Union has cast a cloud of uncertainty over transatlantic aviation regulatory issues.

Brexit means that on March 30, 2019 all EU laws will cease to apply in or to the UK, including those related to civil aviation safety.

Although negotiators from the UK, United States and EU are considering options to mitigate the impact, some disruption is inevitable and the lack of certainty alone is causing headaches for companies with customers, suppliers, subsidiaries or parent companies in the UK.

ARSA is monitoring those discussions and working to identify ways to lessen the impact on repair stations. Help the association by answering this month’s “Quick Question” to let us know whether your company will be impacted by Brexit and what steps you’re taking to prepare…

This “question” is now closed, but the association has not published the results. For more information, contact Brett Levanto (brett.levanto@arsa.org).
