VO (EG) 2096/2005


  •   ensuring safe and efficient provision of air navigation services
  •   providing the basis for the certification of air navigation service providers through the National Supervisory Authority
  •   allowing the compliance with article 2 of EC 550/2005 for NSAs

Motivation and benefits

When issuing the Commission Regulation 550/2004, the European Union prescribed requirements for the provision of air navigation services in the single European sky (ser-vice provision regulation).

Article 3 of this regulation allows the National Supervisory Authorities (NSA) to delegate full or parts of inspections and surveys referred to tasks defined in article 2 of this regulation to recognized organizations.

These inspections and surveys are based on article 6 (Common Requirements). The requirements are put into force with the Commission Regulation 2096/2005, which defines the common requirements for the provision of air navigation services.

Additionally, air navigation service providers who have inspections and surveys performed directly by the NSA may use the competence of recognized organizations within their internal audit system to show compliance with the common requirements.

Target group

  •   all National Supervisory Authorities of the EU member states
  •   aviation authorities of non EU member states, who are willing to use SES CR in national legislation
  •   air navigation service providers, where inspections and surveys are performed by the NSA itself


Based on the guidance material developed by Eurocontrol in the SESIS programme, audit rules and checklists have been developed to provide a documented evidence of compliance to the full set of requirements laid down in Annexes 1 to 5 of EC 2096/2005.

As scope of requirements has been extended from finance to safety and security and service quality, a team of competent auditors is required. All auditors accredited for SES CR have ANS and completed the auditor competence programme, which is surveyed by the Austrian Ministry for Transport, Innovation and Technology (BMVIT).

The comprehensive experience of Quality Austria in the field of ISO 9001 certification (quality management), EN 9100 (aviation), ISO 14001 (environmental management- emergency preparedness and response) BS ISO 45001 : 2018 and SCC (safety management), ensures optimum use of synergies from the certification of these management systems, which can be integrated into the SES inspection survey.
