In 2007, Member States invited the European Commission and EUROCONTROL to consolidate their efforts and streamline the reporting obligations arising from the Single European Sky (SES) legislation and EUROCONTROL decisions.
Further to this request, work was carried out between the European Commission and EUROCONTROL, under the guidance of the SCG (EUROCONTROL Stakeholder Consultation Group) Representatives’ panel. This working group elaborated the idea of using a revised EUROCONTROL Local Single Sky ImPlementation (LSSIP) document as the vehicle to collect the States' annual reports on SES implementation (Article 12 of Regulation (EC) No 549/2004) and the reports on the Flexible Use of Airspace (Article 8 of Regulation (EC) No 2150/2005)(FUA).
As a result, templates for the two Reports were developed and appropriate coordination procedures were agreed on by the European Commission and EUROCONTROL.
In July 2008, the European Commission formally requested EUROCONTROL to collect and analyse the data provided by States in their Annual Reports on the implementation of the SES, on its behalf. The reports were produced by DSS/EIPR during 4 consecutive years (2008-2011) and included an analysis of SES legislation implementation in the 27 EU Member States plus Switzerland and Norway (and ECAA States).

Following the extension of EASA tasks in ATM/ANS field, in 2012 EASA started reviewing the SES Reporting mechanism in order to simplify and harmonise the annual reporting process of the Member States. For the 2012 reporting period, the Commission in conjunction with EASA developed transitory measures in the form of a questionnaire focusing on Performance, Interoperability and Air Navigation Charges.
