PR(08)27: Iceland fails to incorporate rules relating to aviation

4.6.2008

The EFTA Surveillance Authority has decided to deliver three reasoned opinions to Iceland for failure to incorporate the following Regulations:

  • Commission Regulation (EC) No 375/2007 of 30 March 2007 amending Regulation (EC) No 1702/2003 laying down implementing rules for the airworthiness and environmental certification of aircraft and related products, parts and appliances, as well as for the certification of design and production organisations(hereafter “Regulation (EC) No 375/2007”);
  • Commission Regulation (EC) No 1794/2006 of 6 December 2006 laying down a common charging scheme for air navigation services (hereafter “Regulation (EC) No 1794/2006” ); and
  • Commission Regulation (EC) No 437/2007 of 20 April 2007 amending Regulation (EC) No 622/2003 laying down measures for the implementation of the common basic standards on aviation security (hereafter “Regulation (EC) No 437/2007”).

Regulation (EC) No 375/2007 lays down common technical requirements and administrative procedures for the airworthiness and environmental certification of aircraft and related products, parts and appliances. Iceland should have incorporated the Regulation by 7 July 2007.

Regulation (EC) No 1794/2006 lays down the necessary measures for the development of a charging scheme for air navigation services which is consistent with the Eurocontrol Route Charges System. Iceland should have incorporated the Regulation by 7 July 2007.

Regulation (EC) No 437/2007 is an implementing regulation to the European regulatory framework for civil aviation security. The aim of the regulatory framework is to establish and implement a system of harmonised Community measures in order to prevent acts of unlawful interference against civil aviation. Iceland should have incorporated the Regulation by 29 September 2007.

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