European ANS Performance Review

In 1998, the EUROCONTROL Organisation launched Performance Review by creating the independent Performance Review Commission (PRC), supported by the Performance Review Unit (PRU).

This was in line with ECAC’s Institutional Strategy for Air Traffic Management (ATM) in Europe which called for strong, transparent and independent performance review and a target setting system. The aim was to facilitate more effective management of the European ATM system, encourage mutual accountability for system performance and provide a better basis for investment analyses and provide States with guidelines on economic regulation.

Currently, Performance Review incorporates all aspects of Air Navigation Services (ANS).

The second Single European Sky (SES) legislative package, adopted in 2010, has introduced a SES Performance Scheme as its key feature. The European Commission formally designated EUROCONTROL as the Performance Review Body (PRB) of the Single European Sky, acting through its Performance Review Commission (PRC) and supported by the Performance Review Unit (PRU). At present, this designation is valid until 30 June 2015.

This designation creates synergies between SES and EUROCONTROL systems to improve the overall understanding of ANS performance and to promote pan-European performance enhancements, including delivering recommendations to EUROCONTROL’s Provisional Council and the Single Sky Committee.
