The TIP gives both the CAA and EASA oversight of the Air Safety Agreement that was signed between the UK and EU in December, and sets out the measures the aerospace sector must take in order to design and produce new aerospace parts moving between the UK and the EU.

The agreement of the TIP today gives clarity to design and production organisations, and addresses any differences between aviation standards, rules, practices, procedures, and systems related to implementing the annex. It also signals the continued close working relationship between the two organisations now that the UK has left the European regulatory system.

Commenting, Richard Moriarty, Chief Executive at the UK Civil Aviation Authority's, said: “This agreement today provides the clarity aerospace organisations need to allow them to operate efficiently under the post-EU regulatory landscape. While the UK system is now independent of the EU regulatory system, both sides recognise the importance of close collaboration to overseeing the highest standards of aviation safety”.

EASA Executive Director Patrick Ky added: “The UK Civil Aviation Authority is a long-established and trusted partner of EASA. We are now at the start of a new type of relationship and I am certain that it will be a fruitful cooperation.”
