During the two days of the conference, eight presentations addressing various topics will be provided by representatives from national military airworthiness authorities, industry and other stakeholder parties. The final agenda will be distributed to registered participants closer to the date.


The conference is an INVITE ONLY event, principally open to representatives of governmental institutions, defence aviation industry and other stakeholder entities with their main business seat in EDA participating Member States or countries with an Administrative Arrangement. Inquiries regarding the event as well as applications for registration should be directed to When accepted, applicants will be provided with a link that gives access to the conference closer to the date.


Initiated by the Ministers of Defence in 2008, the EDA participating Member States established the Military Airworthiness Authorities Forum aiming at the harmonization of national regulations on military airworthiness in Europe. Since that moment, under auspices of the MAWA Forum, a comprehensive set of European Military Airworthiness Requirements (EMARs) has been developed and is now being implemented by the pMS. While maintaining the EMAR regulatory framework, the MAWA Forum is now focusing on further evolution of the cooperation based on a new Airworthiness Roadmap that was adopted in 2018.
