Report presented on 16 April 2019 by the European Commission on the implementation of Regulation (EC) No 300/2008 during the period 1 January – 31 December 2017.
Regulation (EC) No 300/2008 on common rules in the field of aviation security aims at preventing unlawful interference with civil aircraft in order to protect persons and goods.
At the Union level, the implementation of the aviation security rules is based upon a two layer system of compliance monitoring, i.e. Commission inspections complemented by the assessment of Member States' annual reports on national monitoring activities (security audits, inspections and tests) carried out by each Member State.
Article 15 of the Regulation requires the Commission to conduct inspections, including inspections of airports, operators and entities applying aviation security standards, in order to monitor the application of the Regulation by the Member States and, as appropriate, to make recommendations to improve aviation security.
