Boeing in the EU: Aviation Safety

Aviation Safety

A Smart Approach to Landings

A Smart Approach to Landings

Ensuring a safe and secure aviation system is the foundational consideration when Boeing design aircraft. Boeing continuously works with regulators and members of the industry to advance safety in all aspects of the global air transportation system and to ensure safety efforts are effective and globally harmonised. In addition to meeting regulatory requirements before certification, each aircraft model must meet Boeing’s own time-proven and rigorous design standards. Boeing also works with regulators and the industry to develop training aids that improve a pilot’s ability to respond to challenging situations.

In June 2017, Boeing supported the 2017 EASA-FAA International Aviation Safety Conference held in Brussels. Find out more here.

European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA)

EASA has evolved into one of the leading aviation authorities and Boeing welcomes the collaborative approach the Agency adopts in working with industry. As Boeing brings a number of new aircraft to market, we advocate for timely and efficient certification processes and encourage a harmonised approach between regulators around the world. Boeing appreciates the pursuit of a risk-based certification regime that could ultimately lead to mutual acceptance of product certifications by regulators around the world.

    Cybersecurity

    Cybersecurity is a global, shared responsibility. The partnership between government agencies, airlines and industry provides layers of security to ensure the reduction of vulnerabilities, while strengthening our resilience against threats. Boeing supports the establishment of a European Aviation Information Sharing and Analysis Centre (A-ISAC) to advance effective information sharing among the various stakeholders.

      Chemicals

      Boeing is committed to the practice of safe and sustainable chemical management in aircraft production and maintenance in line with EU chemical legislation objectives. Aircraft operate in highly challenging environments in which stringent aviation safety requirements must be met. In order to maintain airworthiness and mitigate potential supply chain disruptions, Boeing partners with stakeholders across the industry to find alternate materials where possible, and apply for authorisation for continued use where needed. Boeing supports increased dialogue with and between authorities and industry to advance a balanced approach that prevents adverse effects on safety and European competitiveness.
