Rulemaking work program and priorities EU-US feedback forum
Content of the presentation • Agreed principles • Implementation of the principles • Subjects of common interest • Perspective • Conclusion
Agreed principles • Background: • EASA and FAA agreed that they should continue to cooperate on rulemaking issues as a follow-up of the FAA/JAA Harmonisation work programme • However due to the new context there was a need to define new principles • These principles were agreed in Philadelphia at the 2004 Annual Conference.
Agreed principles • Exchange of rulemaking ‘inventories’ in October Year N-2 • Agreement of the list of items of common interest; of associated working method and nomination of focal points for these items by March of Year N-1 • Incorporation of such items in July on Year N-1 by FAA and EASA in their work programmes • EASA: in the Rulemaking work programme and Advance rulemaking programme of Year N • FAA: to be completed by FAA • Consultation on each item of common interest before public consultation of NPA/NPRM and adoption of final rule.
Agreed principles • These principles have been put in place in an informal manner since 2004 using a flow chart agreed at an EASA/FAA/JAA management meeting in December 2004 • Examples of active cooperation: Fuel tank safety, Aging Aircraft, UAV, several CS-25 cabin safety tasks • Experience has shown the need to put in place a more formal procedure and also to improve the process.
Implementation of the principles • An FAA-EASA rulemaking cooperation procedure has been drafted in March 2006 addressing: • Objectives • Scope • Programming • Working methods • Still under discussion: • a teleconference on 28 April 2006 has identified among other things the need to clarify the working methods in particular when one side takes the lead.
Implementation of the principles • A list of items of common interest has been established (May 2006) but its further development has been delayed by the discussion on working methods.
List of subject of common interest • An inventory of subjects of common interest list 77 items! • We need to remain realistic: • Effective cooperation on a limited number of subjects: • Issues are included in the two organisations work programmes and timescales are compatible • Exchange of information on all the others.
List of subject of common interest • Effective cooperation is considered on: • General issues: • Aging aircraft (systems and structure) • Fuel tank safety • Ice protection, super-cooled large droplets (engine and large aeroplanes) • High intensity radiated fields • Human factors following the outcome of EASA NPA proposing a Human factor plan to address design and production. • Critical systems • Airworthiness release certificates • UAV
List of subject of common interest • Effective cooperation is considered on: • CS-25/FAR-25 large aeroplanes: • Design for security • Flight crew error/Flight crew performance considerations in the flight deck certification process • Warning; cautions and advisory lights • Main deck cargo class B compartment • Type III exits • Airplane level safety assessments • Fuel tank protection from debris impact and fire • Fuel low level/Fuel leak detection enhancement
List of subject of common interest • Effective cooperation is considered on: • CS-27&29/ FAR 27 & 29 Rotorcraft • Performance and handling qualities • Damage tolerance (metal and composites) • AC revision
List of subject of common interest • Effective cooperation is considered on: • CS E & P/ FAR 33 and 35: Engine and propellers: • Electronic control systems • Airworthiness standards for propellers.
List of subject of common interest • Effective cooperation is considered on: • CS-23/ FAR-23: small aeroplanes • Introduction of jet airplanes
Perspective • Short term: • Finalise procedure • Finalise list of subject of common interest: • urgent because EASA is due to adopt its rulemaking and advance rulemaking programmes for 2007 in June 2006 • Long term: • Formalise the rulemaking cooperation under the bilateral agreement.
Conclusion • The commitment to cooperate on rulemaking is very strong • Progress has been slower than expected reducing the visibility of the efforts. • Your support, comments and advice are welcome.
