PR(07)51: Iceland fails to incorporate rules relating to the provision of air navigation services


The EFTA Surveillance Authority has decided to deliver a reasoned opinion to Iceland for failure to incorporate Commission Regulation (EC) No 2096/2005 of 20 December 2005 laying down common requirements for the provision of air navigation services.

Icelandshould have incorporated the Regulation by 1 February 2007.

The European regulatory framework for the creation of a single European sky aims at ensuring optimum use of Europe's airspace while providing a consistent, high level of safety in air travel. To this end, Regulation (EC) No 2096/2005 establishes and harmonises the requirements for the provision of air navigation services throughout the EEA and it identifies and adopts the mandatory provisions of the Eurocontrol Safety Regulatory Requirements (ESARRs) no. 3, 4 and 5, which are relevant for the certification of air navigation service providers.

The purpose of the Authority's reasoned opinion is to give the State in question a last chance to take corrective measures before the Authority decides whether to bring the matter before the EFTA Court. Iceland has been given three months to take the measures necessary to comply with the reasoned opinion.
