PR(07)50: Iceland fails to incorporate rules relating to the classification of airspace and access of flights operated under visual flight rules above flight level 195

5.12.2007

The EFTA Surveillance Authority has decided to deliver a reasoned opinion to Iceland for failure to incorporate Commission Regulation (EC) No 730/2006 of 11 May 2006 on airspace classification and access of flights operated under visual flight rules above flight level 195.

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 730/2006 establishes and harmonises the airspace classification to be applied above flight level 195.

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.
