COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING REGULATION (EU) 2019/2153

of 16 December 2019

on the fees and charges levied by the European Union Aviation Safety Agency, and repealing Regulation (EU) No 319/2014

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

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

Having regard to Regulation (EU) 2018/1139 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 4 July 2018 on common rules in the field of civil aviation and establishing a European Union Aviation Safety Agency, and amending Regulations (EC) No 2111/2005, (EC) No 1008/2008, (EU) No 996/2010, (EU) No 376/2014 and Directives 2014/30/EU and 2014/53/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council, and repealing Regulations (EC) No 552/2004 and (EC) No 216/2008 of the European Parliament and of the Council and Council Regulation (EEC) No 3922/91 (1), and in particular Article 126(4) thereof,

After consulting the Management Board of the European Union Aviation Safety Agency,

Whereas:

(1)

In accordance with Regulation (EU) 2018/1139, the revenues of the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (the Agency), include, among other items, the fees paid by applicants for, and holders of, certificates issued by the Agency, and by persons who have registered declarations with the Agency, and charges for publications, handling of appeals, training and any other service provided by the Agency.

(2)

Commission Regulation (EU) No 319/2014 (2) established the fees and charges to be levied by the Agency. However, the tariffs need to be adjusted in order to achieve recovery of cost while avoiding significant accumulation of surplus, in accordance with the provisions set out in Article 126(2) of Regulation (EU) 2018/1139.

(3)

In this respect, the Agency’s forecasts as regards its workload, related costs and other relevant factors should be taken into account.

(4)

Fees and charges provided for in this Regulation should be set in a transparent, fair, non-discriminatory and uniform manner.

(5)

Without prejudice to the principle of cost coverage established in Article 126 of Regulation (EU) 2018/1139, fees and charges levied by the Agency should not jeopardise the competitiveness of the Union industry concerned. Likewise, they should be established on a basis which takes due account of the ability of the legal or natural persons concerned to pay, in particular small and medium-sized enterprises.

(6)

While civil aviation safety should be the prime concern, the Agency should nevertheless take full account of cost efficiency when conducting the tasks incumbent on it, having regard to the scope of those tasks, as they stands following the entry into force of Regulation (EU) 2018/1139, and the resources available to it.

(7)

The Agency should be enabled to levy fees and charges for certification tasks or the provision of other services, which are not specifically mentioned in the Annex to this Regulation, but which are within the remit of Regulation (EU) 2018/1139.

(8)

Agreements referred to in Article 68(1) of Regulation (EU) 2018/1139 should provide a basis for the evaluation of the actual workload involved in the certification of third countries’ products. In principle, the process for validation by the Agency of certificates issued by a third country with which the Union has an appropriate agreement is described in such agreement and should result in workload that differs from the workload required for certification activities by the Agency.

(9)

Time limits for the payment of fees and charges levied under this Regulation should be fixed.

(10)

In order to contribute to fees and charges being recovered to the fullest extent possible, appropriate remedies in cases of non-payment and risk of non-payment should be laid down.

(11)

The geographical location of undertakings in the territories of the Member States should not be a discriminatory factor. Consequently, the travel costs related to the certification tasks carried out on behalf of [such] undertakings should be aggregated and divided among the applicants.

(12)

Applicants should be able to request an estimate of the amount to be paid for the certification tasks and services, so as to increase predictability. In certain cases, the preparation of the estimate may require the Agency to perform a prior technical analysis. Given the cost of such analysis, it is justified for the Agency to be remunerated accordingly.

(13)

It is reasonable that the full payment of the charges for an appeal against decisions of the Agency is a prerequisite for an appeal to be admissible.

(14)

While this Regulation should enable industry to anticipate the level of the fees and charges it will be required to pay, it is necessary to regularly examine whether its terms need to be revised, in accordance with Article 126(3) of Regulation (EU) 2018/1139.

(15)

Interested parties should be consulted prior to any change of fees, and should be given information as to how the fees are calculated. Such information should provide interested parties with an insight into the costs incurred by the Agency and its productivity.

(16)

The revision of the tariffs should follow a procedure that permits amendment without undue delay based on the Agency’s experience gained from the application of this Regulation, continuous resource and working methodology monitoring, and the continuous assessment of the financial needs.

(17)

Regulation (EU) No 319/2014 should be repealed, without prejudice to transitional provisions.

(18)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the committee established by Article 127(1) of Regulation (EU) 2018/1139,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

CHAPTER II

FEES

General provisions as regards payment of fees

1.   Performance of certification tasks is subject to prior payment of the full amount of the fee due, unless the Agency decides otherwise after due consideration of the financial risks involved.

Article 11

Suspension or revocation of certificates

1.   If the outstanding fees have not been received upon the expiry of the time period provided for in Article 4(2), the Agency may suspend or revoke the relevant certificate after having consulted the certificate holder.

2.   If the Agency suspends a certificate because the certificate holder fails to comply with the applicable requirements or fails to pay the annual fee or surveillance fee, the Agency shall, notwithstanding such suspension, continue to invoice the annual fee or surveillance fee in one instalment at the start of the annual or surveillance period. The Agency may revoke the relevant certificate if the certificate holder fails to comply with its payment obligations within one year from the date of notification of the suspension. The reinstatement of the certificate shall be subject to prior payment of the balance of fees due for the period of suspension together with any other amounts due at that time.

for annual or surveillance flat fees levied per certificate and per period of 12 months, the balance of any fees due shall be 1/365th of the relevant flat fee per day;

(b)

for annual fees or surveillance fees levied on an hourly basis, the balance of any fees due shall be calculated on an hourly basis.

The amounts referred to in points (a) and (b) of the first subparagraph, together with any travel expenses and any other amounts due, shall be payable in full on the date the revocation takes effect.

Article 12

Surrender or transfer of certificates, and deactivation of flight simulation training devices

1.   If the certificate holder surrenders a certificate, the balance of any fees due for the ongoing 12-month period shall be calculated as follows:

The amounts referred to in points (a) and (b) of the first subparagraph shall be payable in full together with travel expenses and any other amounts due on the date the surrender takes effect.

2.   Where a certificate is transferred, the fees referred to in Tables 8 to 15 shall be payable by the new certificate holder as from the billing cycle which follows the date on which the transfer takes effect.

3.   In the cases referred to in Table 14 of Part I of the Annex, the device surveillance fee regarding a flight simulation training device shall be reduced pro-rata temporis for periods of deactivation intervening upon request of the applicant.

Article 13

Certification tasks on exceptional basis

An exceptional adjustment shall be applied to the fee levied, in order to cover all costs incurred by the Agency for a given certification task, where the performance of that task requires assigning categories and/or number of staff which the Agency would not normally assign under its standard procedures.

Explanatory Note

(1)

‘Certification specifications’ (CSs) referred to in this Annex are those adopted pursuant to Article 76(3) of Regulation (EU) 2018/1139 and published on the Agency’s website (https://www.easa.europa.eu/document-library/certification-specifications).

(2)

‘VTOL’ refers to rotorcraft or any other heavier-than-air aircraft that has the capability of vertical take-off and/or vertical landing. ‘HTOL’ refers to any heavier-than-air aircraft that is not a VTOL.

(3)

‘VTOL Large Aircraft’ refers to CS-29 and CS-27 CAT A aircraft; ‘VTOL Small Aircraft’ refers to CS-27 aircraft with maximum take-off weight (MTOW) below 3 175 kg and limited to 4 seats, including pilot; ‘VTOL Medium Aircraft’ refers to other CS-27 aircraft.

(4)

High-performance aircraft (HPA) in the weight category up to 5 700 kg are those aeroplanes that have an Mmo greater than 0,6 and/or a maximum operating altitude above 25 000 ft. They shall be charged one category above the category determined by their MTOW, but not exceeding the category ‘over 5 700 kg up to 22 000 kg’.

(5)

‘Small Airships’ refers to:

all Hot-Air Airships independent of their size,

Gas Airships up to a volume of 2 000 m3;

‘Medium Airships’ refers to Gas Airships with a volume of more than 2 000 m3 up to 15 000 m3;

‘Large Airships’ refer to Gas Airships with a volume of more than 15 000 m3.

(6)

In Tables 1, 4 and 8 of Part I of the Annex, the values of the ‘Parts and Non-installed equipment’ refer to the relevant manufacturer’s list prices. In Table 10 of Part I, the highest priced product corresponds to the value (as mentioned in the relevant manufacturer’s list prices) of the most expensive product, part or non-installed equipment that is included in the approved POA scope of work (capability list) of the EASA POA holder.

(7)

For fees levied in accordance with Tables 2 to 4 and 8 of Part I of the Annex, the applicable fee category per application shall be determined by the fee category assigned to the related type design. Where multiple models are certified under one type design, the fee category of the majority of these models is applicable. In case of an even distribution of fee category, the higher fee category applies. For applications relating to several type designs (AML), the highest fee category is applicable.

(8)

If an application includes the concept of establishing an Approved Model List, the corresponding fee increased by 20 % shall apply. For the revision of an approved model list, the fees listed in Tables 2, 3, and 4 of Part I of the Annex shall apply.

(9)

In Tables 2 and 3 of Part I of the Annex, ‘Simple’, ‘Standard’, ‘Significant’ and ‘Complex Significant’ refer to the following:

EASA Supplemental Type Certificate (STC)

STC, major design change, or repair, only involving current and well-proven justification methods, for which a complete set of data (description, compliance check-list and compliance documents) can be communicated at the time of application, and for which the applicant has demonstrated experience, and which can be assessed by the project certification manager alone, or with a limited involvement of a single discipline specialist

All other STCs, major design changes or repairs

‘Significant’ is defined in point 21.A.101(b) of Annex I (Part 21) to Regulation (EU) No 748/2012 (and similarly in FAA 14CFR 21.101 (b)).

‘Complex Significant Change’ is any significant change (ref. GM 21.A.101 of Annex I (Part 21) to Regulation (EU) No 748/2012) involving at least two reasons justifying its classification as significant (examples of criteria as per this GM 21.A.101 of Annex I (Part 21) to Regulation (EU) No 748/2012: change in the general configuration, change to the principles of construction, assumptions used for certification have been invalidated)

or

any significant change involving two or more examples described as significant change (column ‘Description of change’ Tables in Appendix 2 to GM 21.A.101 of Annex I (Part 21) to Regulation (EU) No 748/2012).

If justified by exceptional technical circumstances, the Agency may reclassify a complex significant application to significant.

Table 14, ‘location’ is the place (or places) where the activities of the organisation are managed or conducted.

For this purpose:

the principal place of business (PPoB) is considered as a location, regardless of any FSTD operation;

any address, different from the PPoB where FSTDs are operated is considered as additional location if a compliance officer is appointed at this location.

For an extension to a location, i.e. when a location is at a suitable distance from a location that allows the management to ensure compliance without the need to nominate additional persons, no additional surveillance fee is charged.

As every organisation is unique, a tailored analysis shall be performed to assess the complexity of the organisation considering the number of employees, the size and scope including the number of FSTDs, their levels and the number of aircraft type simulated.

EEP2: The period of 12 months extended up to a maximum of 24 months according to point ORA.FSTD.225.

EEP3: The period of 12 months is extended up to a maximum of 36 months according to point ORA.FSTD.225.
