Standard reference values

To foster harmonisation and a common understanding of our use of data, we are committed to promoting the identification, establishment and maintenance of standard reference values for the aviation industry. These values can be applied to a variety of measurements and data to power strategic decision-making and policy recommendations. Our values are supported by studies made in close collaboration with stakeholders. This removes the need for additional investment in establishing such references and supports the fair and transparent reporting across the aviation industry.
