Give EASA Feedback on Easy Access Rules
On Oct. 7, the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) released a survey seeking feedback on the usefulness of its Easy Access Rules, which it first produced in 2017 as part of the agency’s eRules project.
The Easy Access Rules were developed as part of the project’s larger goal to provide a single, integrated source of aviation rules. They have been made available in both PDF and online formats (mobile friendly). EASA is now gathering data to evaluate their usefulness and impact on work efficiency.
The survey will remain open until Nov. 3. Its purpose is to:
- Evaluate if using Easy Access Rules has influenced work efficiency.
- Measure the overall satisfaction rate of the stakeholders on Easy Access Rules.
- Collect feedback on the Easy Access Rules, which will serve as input for improving the outputs of the eRules project.
Survey response will remain confidential and reported only in an aggregate format. ARSA members are encouraged to support EASA’s review in two ways:
(1) If you have utilized the Easy Access Rules, complete the survey. Begin by visiting ec.europa.eu/eusurvey/runner/SurveyEasyAccessRules.
(2) Share this invitation with any colleagues who have used the system; the agency seeks feedback from all end users and has requested assistance disseminating the survey.

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.
