Commission Regulation (EC) No 980/2002

of 4 June 2002

amending Regulation (EC) No 2082/2000, adopting Eurocontrol standards

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Directive 93/65/EEC of 19 July 1993, on the definition and use of compatible technical specifications for the procurement of air traffic management equipment and systems(1), as last amended by Commission Directive 97/15/EC(2), and in particular Article 3 thereof,

Whereas:

(1) Directive 97/15/EC adopting Eurocontrol standards and amending Directive 93/65/EEC on the definition and use of compatible technical specification for the procurement of air traffic management equipment and systems, as amended by Regulation (EC) No 2082/2000(3), adopted the Eurocontrol standard for On-Line Data Interchange (OLDI), edition 1.0 and the Eurocontrol standard for Air Traffic Services Data Exchange Presentation (ADEXP), edition 1.0.

(2) Regulation (EC) No 2082/2000 adopted two more recent versions of those two Eurocontrol standards, namely OLDI edition 2.2 and ADEXP edition 2.0, as well as a new Eurocontrol standard named Flight Data Exchange - Interface Control Document (FDE-ICD).

(3) Eurocontrol has since adopted amendments to OLDI edition 2.2 and ADEXP edition 2.0.

(4) These amendments to the Eurocontrol standards fall within the scope of Directive 93/65/EEC and contribute to the harmonisation of Member States' air traffic management national systems, particularly concerning the transfer of flights between air traffic control centres (OLDI) and the air traffic flow management (ADEXP).

(5) These amendments include in particular an indication of equipment capabilities of the flight and are necessary to facilitate smooth and safe introduction of several programs aiming at capacity increases.

(6) Regulation (EC) No 2082/2000 should therefore be amended accordingly.

(7) The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Committee instituted by Article 6(1) of Directive 93/65/EEC,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

Annexes I and II to Regulation (EC) No 2082/2000 are amended in accordance with the Annex of this Regulation:

Article 2

This Regulation shall enter into force on the seventh day following that of its publication in the Official Journal of the European Communities.

This Regulation shall be binding in its entirety and directly applicable in all Member States.
