  develop an SMS regulation applicable across the industry.
      – Propose to issue an Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking to
        solicit comments on a single set of requirements for regulated entities.
• In the interim, FAA will file a difference with ICAO against
  Annex 6 SMS requirements
      – Note: FAA has established an SMS for air traffic service providers.

    U.S./European Community Aviation
            Safety Agreement
• Signature was delayed last summer due to new
  EASA fees and charges regulation.

• EASA/industry working group has proposed a two
  phase approach to address fees and charges
  concerns.

• Based on assurances from both EASA and the
  European Commission that these changes will be
  implemented, U.S. government may proceed with
  signature of the bilateral.
       – Ratification/implementation will be delayed until new “hybrid”
         fee system is in the final Community approval process.
