Today, the Director General of EUROCONTROL, Eamonn Brennan, and the Secretary General of EUROCAE, Christian Schleifer, concluded a new Memorandum of Cooperation (MoC) between the two organisations at a virtual meeting in the presence of the EUROCAE President and Council Chair, Bruno Ayral, Thales LAS France.

The new MoC builds on and strengthens decades of cooperation between EUROCAE and EUROCONTROL – Europe’s leading developers of aviation standards. It provides for greater mutual recognition of the role played by each organisation in the field of standards and contributes to greater complementarity between the two.

“Increased collaboration between EUROCAE and EUROCONTROL is a step forward for European aviation. Standards have a fundamental role in accelerating the deployment of the future digital European sky, envisaged by the Airspace Architecture Study. This new arrangement will bring more efficiencies and give more visibility to the European standard development collaborative effort,” stated Eamonn Brennan, EUROCONTROL Director General.

Standards are key enablers of aviation interoperability and harmonisation; they assist in demonstrating compliance with regulations, and support procurement by providing service providers and manufacturers with consistent requirements.

Europe is moving towards an open architecture, capable of enabling a seamless, flexible and scalable provision of services in the digital European sky. Standards will play a critical role in supporting global interoperability and worldwide harmonisation, while showing compliance with a more performance based regulatory frame, enabling implementation of innovative solutions”, stated Christian Schleifer, Secretary General of EUROCAE. “This new arrangement will allow for greater synergies between EUROCONTROL and EUROCAE and enhanced collaboration in addressing the challenges ahead.”

EUROCONTROL relies on its in-house expertise and civil-military stakeholder consultation and working arrangements to develop aviation standards which are applied across ECAC States and beyond, and are recognised within the ICAO, EC and EASA frameworks. It also significantly contributes to EUROCAE’s standardisation efforts.

EUROCAE develops high-quality aviation standards, which are built upon the expertise of more than 3500 highly skilled experts nominated by EUROCAE´s 360 European and global members. EUROCAE standards are referenced by all major European and international regulators and are therefore actively contributing to a safe, efficient and sustainable aviation.
