This paves the way to lower fees by reducing the involvement of the validating authority, the FAA said. In addition, the agencies will be able to approve basic type certifications with minimal oversight, the FAA said. The decision “is a further recognition that both the FAA and EASA fully subscribe to the philosophy that safety in today’s global aviation market depends to a great extent on international partnerships between aviation regulators.”
EASA and the FAA further worked to update their validation improvement roadmap designed to encourage the agencies to leverage each other’s certification systems and reduce redundant efforts.
