Feasibility study on the establishment of a single European authority for the certification of aeronautical products

The Commission wishes to conclude a contract for a feasibility study on the establishment of a single European authority for the certification of aeronautical products. The main objectives of the study are:

- To identify the tasks and responsibilities best exercised by a single European authority for the certification of aeronautical products, and the obstacles to its establishment;
- To propose solutions which would overcome these obstacles;
- To indicate the concrete steps to be taken by the various interested parties such as the Commission, the Council, the Member States, and the Joint Aviation Authorities (JAAs).

The study should take account of the possible evolution of EU, national and JAA involvement in other aviation safety-related matters. A more detailed description of the requirements can be obtained from the Commission.

This invitation to tender is open to consultants (individuals or organizations, including consortia) capable of performing the above tasks. The chosen consultant will require detailed knowledge of aviation safety bodies and regulation, and relevant EU and international law. Since the study will entail close collaboration with many governmental bodies, manufacturers, operators and other interested parties, the chosen consultant will need to have sufficient standing within the area of aviation safety regulation to gain access to policy-making levels within such organizations.
