NSA Coordination Platform

The NSA Coordination Platform (NCP) was formed in 2009 to contribute to Single European Sky (SES) implementation under the aegis of the Single Sky Committee (SSC). The NCP is a platform for National Supervisory Authorities (NSAs) to share experiences and to develop added value between NSA-related activities.

The NCP is composed of a Plenary, Advisory Board and five Working Groups, as described below. It is Co-Chaired by the Commission and an NSA representative.

Working Group

Description

Plenary

The Plenary is composed of heads of NSAs, and meets twice per year. This is a forum or strategic discussion on the evolution of the NSA role in line with SES requirements.

Advisory Board

The Advisory Board performs work on behalf of the Plenary. It is composed of nominated representatives from each FAB and is chaired by the NCP Co-Chairs.

FAB Working Group

The FAB WG enables an exchange of views between NSAs at FAB level, and provides overview of the FAB implementation from the NSA perspective, assessing the progress made and difficulties encountered.

Interoperability Working Group

The Interoperability WG develops and agrees a harmonised approach and process to supervising ANSP compliance concerning declarations of verification of systems or technical files and with obligations under the interoperability Implementing Regulations. This working group develops guidance to support NSAs to implement the necessary processes for supervision.

Performance Working Group

The Performance WG collaborates in the implementation of the performance scheme through discussion, identification of best practices, and coordination of activities.

Safety Oversight Working Group

The Safety Oversight WG reviews and discusses safety issues in partnership with EASA, provides feedback to EASA on the impact of their activities on NSAs and prepares and validates NCP guidelines based on best practices at NSA level.

SESAR Deployment Working Group

The SESAR Deployment WG reviews issues related to SESAR deployment from the NSA perspective, in particular contributing to governance of the deployment process and assessing the impact of deployment on NSAs’ role, tasks, expertise and organisation.
