Standardisation and Single Sky support
The single European sky (SES) framework Regulation establishes a harmonised regulatory framework in conjunction with the airspace, service provision and interoperability Regulations and calls for the adoption of implementing rules by the European Commission.
EUROCONTROL develops specifications which can act as Means of Compliance (MoC) to SES regulations. EUROCONTROL also develops guidance material and provides implementation support activities to its stakeholders.
Under the SES framework, the European Commission may develop the implementing rules themselves, but may also issue a mandate to an organisation which is then tasked with implementing rule drafting. EUROCONTROL is one such organisation and has developed numerous draft regulations which were submitted by the EC to the Single Sky Committee (SSC) for its formal opinion.
