Working procedures are a type of agreement with a foreign CAA with which the FAA has not entered into a bilateral agreement. They are used to define methods by enabling the FAA aircraft certification service to assist another state in authorizing aeronautical products and items exported from the United States to that state. 6.2. In the event of disagreement between the parties over the effectiveness of the measures taken, the notifying party may require the other party to take immediate steps to prevent the organization from carrying out maintenance tasks for civil aviation products under its control. If the other party does not take these measures within fifteen working days of the request of the notifying party, the powers conferred on the competent authority of the other party in accordance with this procedure are suspended until the matter is satisfactorily resolved by the joint committee in accordance with the provisions of the agreement. Pending the adoption by the Joint Committee of a decision on this matter, the notifying party may take all the measures it deems necessary to prevent the organization from carrying out, under its control, tasks of maintenance of civil aviation products. CONSIDERING that each party has found, through a long practice of technical exchanges and bilateral agreements between Canada and the Member States of the European Community (EC), that the other party`s standards and systems for airworthiness and certification or environmental acceptance of civil aviation products are sufficiently equivalent to its own to make an agreement in question achievable. , to improve cooperation and improve civil aviation safety efficiency, OBJECTIVE to promote civil aviation safety and environmental quality and compatibility and to facilitate the exchange of civil aviation products, a bilateral aviation security agreement (BASA), a Memorandum of Understanding or a working agreement and related enforcement procedures provide for technical cooperation between national aviation authorities. They help to reduce duplication and aim at mutual recognition of certificates. The second new BASA Schedule on Flight Simulation Training Devices will allow mutual acceptance of compliance results as well as documentation on the recurrent evaluation and qualification of full flight simulators based in the EU and the US. It will save resources, including by eliminating double assessments by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EEAS) and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). In the aviation sector too, costs will decrease: operators of flight simulation training systems will no longer be reassessed several times and these savings can be passed on to airlines that send pilots in training. for Canada: BASA, the Canadian civil aviation organization, is a bilateral aviation safety agreement that facilitates the technical evaluation process of two signatory states.
For example, an importing country can avoid double inspections by accepting inspections and certifications by an exporting country. Through these activities, BASA reduces the economic burden on airlines and aircraft operators.
