EMAR Implementation Workshop

  • 28 February 2012 to 29 February 2012
  • Hoogerheide NETHERLANDS
  • 07:00 - 15:00

The aim of the EMAR Implementation workshop is to: “Establish a deeper understanding of the challenges facing pMS when implementing the European Military Airworthiness Requirements (EMARs) together with the development of an ‘implementation-toolset’ of solutions to overcome these challenges”.

Secondary objectives are to enable participants to:

  • Gain a better understanding of the pMS EMAR implementation challenges that have been experienced (past and present)
  • Identify the common barriers to national EMAR implementation (e.g legal, duty holders, organisational structures, national army/navy/air force/ civilian structural differences)
  • Better appreciate the dependencies between the EMARs and the timings for these events (e.g AMC, EMAR 147 and 66 etc.). Discussion on whether EMARs can be implemented individually, or as a whole suite.
  • Agree the next steps for EMAR implementation and possibly a common vision/direction of where the MAWA Forum would like to go (to include understanding the difference between ‘implementation’ and ‘adoption’.)
  • Agree fundamental principles/agreements for EMAR implementation (e.g core requirements) – i.e. Is there an agreed understanding of the reason for change? What does implemented/adopted actually ‘look like’. What is the end-game that nations should be aiming for?
  • Gain a better understanding of the linkage between EMAR implementation and Mutual Recognition (i.e does a pMS have to implement all of the EMARs for Mutual Recognition?)

In addition throughout discussions, participants will be identifying what an European Military Joint Airworthiness Authorities Organisation could do to assist in achieving these.

This event is restricted to participating Member States representatives only and requests can be addressed to the EDA Airworthiness Offcie (to:
