The European Aviation Safety Agency promotes the highest common standards of safety and environmental protection in civil aviation in Europe and worldwide. It is the centrepiece of a new regulatory system which provides for a single European market in the aviation industry.

The agency's responsibilities include:

  • expert advice to the EU for drafting new legislation;
  • implementing and monitoring safety rules, including inspections in the Member States;
  • type-certification of aircraft and components, as well as the approval of organisations involved in the design, manufacture and maintenance of aeronautical products;
  • authorization of third-country (non EU) operators;
  • safety analysis and research.

EASA legislation is available from the  European Aviation Safety Agency website.
