As part of the agreement, Chinese and U.S. regulators obtained „full mutual recognition“ of other civil aviation products, including airworthiness certification, according to CAAC. The agreement includes airworthiness review and approval of design standards, production monitoring, export seaworthiness, technical assistance and other areas of cooperation, the statement said. Bilateral airworthiness agreements are executive agreements reached prior to 1996 through an exchange of diplomatic notes between the U.S. State Department and its foreign counterpart, based on the FAA`s technical recommendations. (Note: U.S. no longer enters into bilateral airworthiness agreements)) This agreement supports the faa Aircraft Certification Service`s certification strategy updating by meeting stakeholder needs and promoting the seamless transfer of products and authorizations around the world. An agreement between the two national aviation authorities came into force on 17 October. The „Airworthiness Implementation Procedures“ (PPI) document allows each authority to use the design, production and airworthiness authorizations issued by the other authority, as well as the continuation of airworthiness. The agreement uses the compatibility of the certification systems of the two authorities and respects the commitment made by the United States and China in 2005 by creating a BASA. This IAP allows both the FAA and CAAC to submit validation applications for all categories of aviation products and address the challenges of globalization, such as complex business models between design and production. During the meeting, ESA and CAAC adopted the Technical Implementation Procedures (TIP) that will support the agreement, particularly with regard to airworthiness. These administrative and technical procedures describe how the two civil aviation regulators will conduct the validation and mutual recognition of civil aviation products.

What does the agreement allow? The agreement would help China export developed aircraft to the country, such as the C919 and ARJ-21. The FAA and EASA certification is the ideal imprimatur for COMAC. The ARJ-21, for example, did not look like an FAA certification candidate. This has limited its export potential, even at irresistible prices. The bilateral aviation security agreement between the EU and China came into force on 1 September. The agreement was first signed in Brussels on 20 May 2019. This bilateral agreement mainly concerns the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) and „the process of obtaining product authorizations… At the same time, ensure that high safety and environmental standards continue to be met. So what will be the real impact of this agreement on the aviation industry? In theory, this agreement will make it easier to accept aircraft built in China within the European Union.
