COMMISSION DIRECTIVE 97/15/EC of 25 March 1997 adopting Eurocontrol standards and amending Council Directive 93/65/EEC on the definition and use of compatible technical specifications for the procurement of air-traffic-management equipment and systems (Text with EEA relevance)

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Directive 93/65/EEC of 19 July 1993 on the definition and use of compatible technical specifications for the procurement of air-traffic-management equipment and systems (1), and in particular Articles 3 and 5 (2) thereof,

Whereas in accordance with Article 3 of Directive 93/65/EEC the Commission shall identify and adopt Eurocontrol standards;

Whereas Annex I to Directive 93/65/EEC contains an indicative list of Eurocontrol standards; whereas that list should be as complete as possible;

Whereas Annex II to Directive 93/65/EEC defines the awarding entities responsible for the purchasing of air-navigation equipment; whereas this list needs to be kept up to date;

Whereas, given that Eurocontrol has adopted two standards, it is appropriate that these standards be made mandatory; whereas it is also appropriate that the indicative list in Annex I be amended as a result of introduction by Eurocontrol of the Eatchip programme;

Whereas it is necessary to amend Annex II to take account of changes notified by Member States and further to include the awarding entities of new Member States;
