EASA | Organiser
The European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) is the centrepiece of the European Union's strategy for aviation safety. Our mission is to promote and achieve the highest common standards of safety and environmental protection in civil aviation.
The European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) was established in 2003 with the mission to provide a high and uniform level of protection for the European citizens. Based in Cologne, the Agency employs experts and administrators from all over Europe.
EASA's objective is to promote and achieve the highest common standards of safety and environmental protection in civil aviation.
EASA regularly revises the risks and improve the common regulations applied among EU countries and airlines so they are always of the highest standard. We work hand in hand with the National Aviation Authorities and aviation manufacturers across Europe to achieve these goals.
In addition, the Agency’s experts apply strict certification and inspection standards to provide European citizens with the safest and most environmentally friendly aviation system in the world.
We also join forces with other international organisations to make the experience of flying safer in all parts of the world.
EASA has its headquarters in Cologne, Germany, a Branch office in Brussels and representation offices in Beijing, China; Montreal, Canada; Singapore and Washington D.C. in the United States.
EASA’s activities are supervised by its Management Board, composed of representatives from each Member State and the European Commission. The Board defines our priorities, determines EASA´s annual budget and checks that we are working to the highest standards.
Our safety priorities are recorded in the European Plan for Aviation Safety (EPAS) and are aligned with other international air transport organisations.
