BAKGRUNN (fra kommisjonsforslaget, engelsk utgave)
Reasons for and objectives of the proposal
The Single European Sky (SES) initiative aims to improve the overall efficiency of the way in which European airspace is organised and managed through a reform of the industry providing air navigation services (ANS).
The amended proposal for a Regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council on the implementation of the Single European Sky [COM(2020) 579] is aimed at updating, in light of experience, and recasting the current legislation regarding the Single European Sky. While the original objectives and principles of the proposal adopted by the Commission in 2013 [COM(2013) 410] remain the same, the amended proposal specifically focuses on accelerating the adaptation of the air navigation services in light of those principles and objectives.
One important element of the amendments proposed in this context consists in establishing a permanent Performance Review Body (PRB) function, to be exercised by the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (hereafter referred to as “the Agency”). The arrangements necessary for these purposes require that several amendments be made to Regulation (EU) 2018/1139, with a view to ensuring that the PRB functions are carried out with the necessary independence and expertise and with the required resources. Those amendments are set out in the present proposal.
The amended recast proposal referred to above and the present proposal should be considered as a single and consistent package.
