There are several open issues which have been outlined in the previous chapter already. The main concerns / issues are:

  • insufficient budget allocation for ERA which may have an impact on the quality and quantity of all authorisations, approvals and certificates to be used by the ERA;
  • impact of the budget allocation on the future ERA fees and charges related to the above;
  • the cooperation of the ERA with the NSAs in these processes (time, double work, competence, redundancies, re-assessments, etc.);
  • the timely and smooth delivery of various generic processes and IT tools by the ERA;
  • the new tools developed by the ERA (i.e. common occurrence reporting tool, etc.);
  • the impact of the ERA on national rules;
  • the cooperation agreements of the ERA with non-EU Member States.
