The FAA has signed agreements with EASA and Transport Canada to allow the regulatory authorities to rely on each other's systems.

In a statement, the FAA said the partnership will eliminate the need for duplicate processes while getting safety enhancing equipment installed on aircraft more quickly.

EASA said it would also simplify acceptance of the classification for basic supplemental type certificates while it expects the partnership to save the regulatory authorities both time and money.

The new safety agreements will also allow reciprocal acceptance of the majority of technical standard order-approved articles.
