EASA Seeks Input for Impact Assessment Methodology

On Dec. 17, EASA contacted ARSA – as part of the association’s participation on the agency’s Engineering & Maintenance Technical Committee (EM.TEC) – seeking assistance with an online survey supporting its methodology for assessing economic impact on maintenance organizations. Members should review the survey’s details, seek further information as necessary and respond if appropriate.

EASA provided the following description along with the survey announcement:

This survey is intended to collect relevant data for the assessment of economic and financial size of targeted stakeholders, in support of the impact assessment methodology used in the decision-making process put in place by EASA to justify opinions, decisions, acceptable means of compliance and guidance material for the application of the Basic Regulation and its implementing rules.

The following specific aviation stakeholders are covered by the survey:

(1) Helicopter operators and training organisations: operators holding a valid Air Operator Certificate (AOC) in the fields of Commercial Air Transport, General Aviation, Special Operations and State aircraft operations as well as Approved Training Organisations (ATO).

(2) Maintenance organisations: further detail and granularity, including Continuing Airworthiness Management Organisations (CAMO) approved under Part-M Subpart-G, Approved Maintenance Organisations (AMO) approved under Part-145 and AMO approved under Part-M Subpart-F, and Maintenance Training Organisations (MTO) approved under Part-147.

(3) Aerodromes: in particular by improving the granularity in terms of specific economic data for single aerodromes.

An active contribution from the affected stakeholders is critical to the success of this survey. The answers will be aggregated and de-identified to ensure confidentiality.

Please ensure that the survey is answered only once per company/organisation.


The survey will close on January 31, 2020.
