The Bilateral Civil Aviation Safety Agreement (BASA), signed on 22 June 2020, will further strengthen the EU`s already strong cooperation with Japan and strengthen the competitiveness of the aviation industry, which is crucial for the recovery of the crisis caused by Covid-19.

In particular, it will eliminate unnecessary dual approvals for aviation product evaluation and testing activities, reduce the time it takes for manufacturers of aeronautical products to obtain export approvals to Japan, while ensuring a higher degree of legal certainty. In addition, in accordance with the EU-Japan Economic Partnership Agreement, BASA will also strengthen transport links in line with the EU`s Asia-Europe strategy.
