EASA published the 10th edition of the European Plan for Aviation Safety (EPAS) covering 2021 - 2025.

EPAS sets out the strategic priorities and enablers, and the main risks affecting the European aviation system, while also defining the necessary actions to mitigate the risks, with the paramount objective of further improving aviation safety.

The Plan provides a coherent and transparent framework for safety management, both at the State and the regional level. 

EPAS is a key component of the Commission’s European Aviation Safety Programme (EASP), supporting the goals and objectives of the ICAO Global Aviation Safety Plan (GASP) for the benefit of all 55 in the ICAO EUR Region. 

The new edition includes 170 actions, among which the rulemaking actions have been revised to alleviate the stakeholder’s burden during the unprecedented crisis the aviation sector is facing now. A new section has been included to provide more context on the COVID-19 impact on the European aviation sector. Furthermore, a new Volume III now reflects the key risk areas and the associated safety issues affecting the European aviation system.

For more information please see the European Plan for Aviation Safety 2021-2025.
