A young and dynamic team serving the aviation industry
The General Secretariat is responsible for the Association operations and administration, relations with EUROCAE Members, as well as the creation, supervision and coordination of all Working Groups. It also assumes EUROCAE representation towards external bodies, including agreements negotiation.
The primary task of Working Groups is to prepare performance specifications and similar documents that may be adopted as standards by the aviation industry.
These standards are often referenced by the aviation authorities or international organisations. They are most frequently Minimum Operational Performance Specifications (MOPS) or Minimum Aviation System Performance Specifications (MASPS), although User Guides and other advisory material are also developed.
The European Organisation for Civil Aviation Equipment is a non-profit organisation dedicated to aviation standardisation since 1963.

More and more we see that performance-based regulations nowadays have an influence on our work programme and standards are needed more than ever to complete the deployment or roll-out package.
EUROCAE is at the forefront of new developments in aviation.
The EASCG was created as a joint advisory group to coordinate the European ATM-related standardisation activities, essentially stemming from the European ATM Master Plan, in support of Single European Sky (SES) implementation.
EUROCAE plays a leading role in this coordination group.
Standardisation is one of the processes that allows this harmonised approach to be implemented. Currently there are multiple organisations active in developing such standards at different levels. This increases the risk of gaps and overlaps in the various standardisation activities. Considering the successful example of the EASCG which coordinates the standardisation activities in the area of ATM, it was decided to put in place a similar arrangement in the area of UAS – the European UAS Standards Coordination Group (EUSCG).
