EASA has developed the Safety Publications application as a service to enhance
the aviation industry's receipt of European Safety Publications.
Use of the Safety Publications application is based on the following terms:
The Agency aims to minimise disruption caused by technical errors.
However some data or information on this site may have been created or structured in files or formats
which are not error-free thus Agency cannot guarantee that this service will not be interrupted
or otherwise affected by such problems. The Agency accepts no responsibility with regard to such problems
incurred as a result of using this site or any linked external site.
According to Regulation (EC) No 216/2008 of 20/02/2008, since 28 September 2003 the Agency exercises on behalf of
the EU Member States their functions and tasks as State of Design, Manufacture and Registry regarding
design approval for products, parts and appliances under their safety oversight.
The dissemination of ADs to aircraft operators and owners is a responsibility of the State of Registry
and does not belong to the Agency.
For products, parts and appliances, for which the Agency is not the Primary Certificating Authority,
its policy is to adopt automatically the ADs issued by the non-EU State of Design,
except if the Agency itself issues a different AD before the date of entry into force of the
non-EU State of Design AD (Decision N° 2/2003 of the Executive Director of the Agency of 14 October 2003).
The EASA AD Publishing Tool contains all ADs issued or approved by EASA since 28 September 2003 and many State of Design ADs issued by European NAAs before that date. Many Foreign State of Design ADs adopted by EASA since 28 September 2003 are already in the AD Publishing Tool and those still missing are successively uploaded.
Applicable (Foreign or European NAA) State of Design ADs which are not (yet) in the EASA AD Publishing Tool can be retrieved from the websites of the respective Authorities, see “Useful links” published on the Agency’s Airworthiness Directives website.
