Apron Management Service (AMS) - 1-Day Briefing

The Commission Delegated Regulation, referred to as (EU) 2020/1234, amended the (EU) 139/2014 by changing the authoritative (AR), organisational (OR) and operational (OPS) requirements regarding certification, oversight, and procedures of Apron Management Services (AMS). 
These requirements are applicable from the 20th of March 2022.

This 1-day briefing will allow you to get to grips with the requirements of the new AMS implementing rules and its AMC/GM, highlighting the impact they have on aerodrome operators, AMS providers and ATS providers. It outlines how to approach and interpret the requirements and how compliance can be proven to the Competent Authority.

The course facilitates your EU/EASA regulation awareness and supports the preparation for oversight as well as internal audits. It also allows you to actively exchange with our instructor and other participants to share best practices and solutions. It is ideal for personnel which need a solid and efficient overview of the new requirements.
