Evaluation confirms European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) fit for purpose


A Commission evaluation of Regulation (EU) 2018/1139 on common rules in the field of civil aviation and establishing a European Union Aviation Safety Agency (‘EASA’) has given a positive appraisal of EASA’s performance, efficiency, and overall EU added value. The evaluation found EASA to be successful in delivering on its objectives and tasks including rulemaking, certification and standardisation. 

The findings show that there are clear benefits of having an integrated European aviation safety system. Moving forward, the evaluation highlighted that EASA must continue to adapt in order to meet the civil aviation sector's changing needs and requirements.
