The European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and the Japan Civil Aviation Bureau (JCAB) have taken a significant step forward in their collaboration by signing a Letter of Intent (LoI) on the implementation of the EU-Japan Aviation Partnership Project and a Memorandum of Cooperation (MoC). This landmark agreement aims to enhance safety, promote regulatory harmonization, and foster mutual cooperation between the European Union and Japan in the aviation sector.
The LoI between EASA and JCAB signifies their joint commitment to developing an aviation partnership project, focused on areas such as unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), urban aerial mobility (UAM), airworthiness, maintenance, operations, safety management and environmental protection. By sharing knowledge, expertise, and best practices, both organizations aim to strengthen the aviation industry’s resilience and high standards. The project forms part of an EU-funded programme which aims at enhancing the partnership between the EU and North Asian countries in the domain of civil aviation.
The MoC on aviation safety emphasizes the mutual interest of EASA and JCAB in fostering closer collaboration in the field of aviation safety, new technologies and environmental protection. The two agencies will exchange information and facilitate technical assistance programs to enhance cooperation in these areas.
The signing of these agreements between EASA and JCAB reflects the growing importance of international cooperation in aviation. It marks the beginning of an exciting chapter of cooperation, with the potential to inspire further international collaborations in the field of aviation safety and environmental protection.
