European ATM Master Plan Level 3 Implementation Plan

This Implementation Plan, together with the Implementation Report, constitute the “Implementation view” or Level 3 of the European ATM Master Plan (MP).

The Implementation Plan brings together and provides the framework for the commonly agreed actions to be taken by ECAC stakeholders, in the context of the implementation of SESAR. These actions are consolidated in the form of ‘Implementation Objectives’, addressing those elements in SESAR which have reached the necessary operational and technical maturity and for which stakeholders have expressed an interest in their operational introduction. Implementation Objectives address validated SESAR Solutions and also account for some of the existing (EU) regulations in ATM.

Edition 2018 – New Objectives and substantial changes to existing ones

A ‘substantial change’ is a change that may affect the stakeholder's commitment to implement an objective (e.g. implementation deadline, technical/operational requirements, applicability area, etc.) and therefore requiring the highest level of consultation – EUROCONTROL technical working arrangements where relevant, Agency Advisory Board (AAB) and Provisional Council (PC).

In particular, changes to the applicability area are considered substantial and follow the consultation process mentioned above and/or are consulted directly with the State LSSIP Focal Point if the impact of the change is only local.
