PR(10)08: Iceland fails to implement Regulation laying down requirements on data link services for the single European sky


The EFTA Surveillance Authority has decided to send a reasoned opinion to Iceland for failure to incorporate a Regulation on data link services for the single European sky.[1]

The data link services Regulation lays down the requirements for the coordinated introduction of data link services[2] based on air-ground point-to-point data communications.

Iceland was to take the measures necessary to ensure incorporation of the Act no later than 4 July 2009.

Delivering a reasoned opinion is the second stage in infringement proceedings. The EFTA Surveillance Authority may decide to bring the matter before the EFTA Court if Iceland fails to take satisfactory measures within two months of receiving the reasoned opinion.
