Article 55 of (EU) 2018/545 sets out the transitional provisions for the new regime. These are of particularly importance for all pending applications with NSAs and their further processing by the ERA from 16th of June 2019 onwards, in particular the practicalities for transferring applications and the acceptance and processing by ERA of those parts already assessed by the NSAs.

Some Member States have decided to extend the transposition of the directive until 16th June 2020. With regard to the transposition dates in the respective Member State please refer to the table above.

In addition, ERA has to sign a cooperation agreement with each national safety authority (NSA).
