PR(08)12: Iceland fails to incorporate rules relating to aviation

27.2.2008

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

  1. Commission Regulation (EC) No 831/2006 amending Regulation (EC) No 622/2003 laying down measures for the implementation of the common basic standards on aviation security, which lays down measures for the implementation of the security standards on cargo, courier and express parcels;
  2. Commission Regulation (EC) No 1862/2006 of 15 December 2006 amending Regulation (EC) No 622/2003 laying down measures for the implementation of the common basic standards on aviation security, which lays down performance requirements for walk-through metal detection equipment;
  3. Commission Regulation (EC) No 1448/2006 of 29 September 2006 amending Regulation (EC) No 622/2003 laying down measures for the implementation of the common basic standards on aviation security, which lays down performance requirements for Explosive Detection Systems (EDS).

The European regulatory framework for civil aviation security aims at establishing and implementing a system of harmonised Community measures in order to prevent acts of unlawful interference against civil aviation.

Icelandshould have incorporated these Regulations by 28 April 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 these matters before the EFTA Court. Iceland has been given two months to take the measures necessary to comply with the reasoned opinions.
