Starting With Aircraft >30 Seats, >15,000kg
Australia and New Zealand will
recognise each other's aviation safety approvals under legislation
introduced this week into the Australian Parliament, the Deputy
Prime Minister and Minister for Transport and Regional Services,
John Anderson, said.
The New Zealand Government will introduce matching legislation
into the New Zealand Parliament shortly.
"Under the Civil Aviation Legislation Amendment
(Mutual Recognition with New Zealand and Other Matters) Bill 2003,
aviation safety approvals issued to eligible airlines in one
country will be recognised in the other, starting with Air
Operator's Certificates for aircraft of more than 30 seats or
The mutual recognition of other safety certificates will be
considered in the future," Mr Anderson said. "It will significantly
reduce the administrative burden on airlines, because they will no
longer be required to obtain and maintain duplicate certification
issued by both countries.
"For example, under the
current arrangements an airline wishing to operate services in both
countries would need to hold an AOC from both regulators and comply
with both certificates, according to where their operations were
being conducted. Mutual recognition will mean that they will now
only need to hold one AOC, from their home regulator.
"The mutual recognition legislation will implement an important
part of Australia's open skies agreement with New Zealand and is a
major step forward in the integration of the trans-Tasman aviation
market. Australian and New Zealand operators covered by the open
skies agreement will be eligible for mutual recognition.
"It will not affect the safety of aircraft operations in either
Australia or New Zealand. Australia and New Zealand both have
extremely high safety standards, which are consistent with
international best practice for airlines operations using large
capacity aircraft," Anderson explained.
