COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING REGULATION (EU) 2018/139

of 29 January 2018

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

Having regard to Regulation (EC) No 552/2004 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 10 March 2004 on the interoperability of the European air traffic management network (the interoperability Regulation) (1), and in particular Article 3(5) thereof,

After consulting the Single Sky Committee,

Whereas:

(1)

Point (16) of Article 2(2) of Commission Regulation (EC) No 1033/2006 (2) refers to definitions laid down in Volume 1 of the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) Procedures for Air Navigation Services — Aircraft Operations (PANS-OPS, Doc 8168) and more specifically to its fifth edition of 2006 incorporating Amendment No 6. On 10 November 2016, the ICAO amended Doc 8168, incorporating Amendment No 7.

(2)

Point 2 of the Annex to Regulation (EC) No 1033/2006 refers to provisions laid down in the ICAO Procedures for Navigation Services — Air Traffic Management (PANS-ATM, Doc 4444), and more specifically to the 15th edition of 2007 incorporating Amendment No 6. On 10 November 2016, the ICAO amended Doc 4444, incorporating Amendment No 7A.

(3)

The references in Regulation (EC) No 1033/2006 to Doc 8168 and Doc 4444 should be updated to enable the Member States to meet their international legal obligations and to ensure consistency with the ICAO's international regulatory framework.

(4)

Regulation (EC) No 1033/2006 should therefore be amended accordingly,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

(2)

in the Annex, point 2 is replaced by the following:
