The Agency carries out Standardisation Inspections in EASA Member States in accordance with the Commission Regulation (EC) No 736/2006.
Every standardisation team is composed of one EASA team leader plus team members seconded by NAA's. The on site phase of a Standardisation Inspection usually lasts one week. The teams also visit undertakings approved by that Member State's NAA for sampling how the NAA performs its oversight obligations.
A final report is established after a Standardisation Inspection. It contains any findings against the NAA inspected and is sent to the NAA inspected, to the Member State's government and to the European Commission.
For non-compliance findings, the NAA must establish and implement remedial action plans within agreed timelines. The Agency in turn verifies and validates the satisfactory progressive implementation of action plans.
