The European Commission published a comprehensive strategy for the European Aviation sector. This was on December 7, 2015. It’s an initiative that set a milestone for European business. The key was to multiply growth and foment innovation. In addition to that, passengers profiting from safer, cleaner and cheap flights was the aim. Moreover, under this strategy, came another critical achievement, the BASA. The Bilateral Civil Aviation Safety Agreement.


The European Commission and Japan, on June 22, signed a civil aviation safety agreement. This comes one and a half years post EU and Japan entered into an Economic Partnership Agreement. Thus, the BASA aims to bolster Japan and the EU’s existing alliance. Furthermore, mutual trust and dedication will also augment. In addition to that, a set of shared norms will ease the business process for European and Japanese companies. Therefore, the administrative burden will subside, creating better opportunities for investment. In the same vein, this will also energize the EU’s aviation industry, boosting their economic prosperity.

What Purpose Does The BASA Serve?

The civil aviation safe agreement intends to support aeronautical manufacturers in the EU. Furthermore, the motive is to increase its trade and share, allowing the aviation industry to access the Japanese market. Thus, it will help the “hard-hit sector recover from the crisis”, said the Commissioner for Transport Adina Valeant. Civil aviation will reach a higher level of “safety and environmental compatibility”, he added.

The principal missions of the BASA are as follows: 

  1. Eradicate unnecessary duplication of evaluation and testing activities for aeronautical products.
  2. Decrease costs for authorities and the aviation industry.
  3. Promote cooperation between the Civil Aviation Authorities of the European Union and Japan.

What will be the After-Effects of the BASA?

  • There will be a reduction in the time required to obtain Japan’s approvals for exports.
  • It will achieve a stronger sense of legal certitude, including Intellectual Property Rights (IPR).

Final Seal

Once the EU and Japan complete their respective internal procedures, there will be a conclusion of the agreement. Affixing signatures will bring the BASA to its enforcement. is now on Telegram.
