This EUROCONTROL Specification provides details of procedures and requirements for the implementation and application of the Flexible Use of the Airspace Concept developed by EUROCONTROL.
The Specification is also intended to serve as a means of compliance to the essential requirements listed in the European Commission Interoperability Regulation (EC) No 552/2004 of 10 March 2004 and to support implementation and application of the Flexible Use of Airspace Regulation (EC) No 2150/2005 of 23 December 2005 laying down common rules for the flexible use of the airspace.
The FUA Specification not only addresses essential interoperability requirements presumed for systems or constituents, but progressively facilitates implementation matters of operational coordination between civil and military ATM partners. This requires intensive cooperation and consultation processes between the competent civil and military authorities of the Member States and coordination at EUROCONTROL level to enable optimum use of the European airspace.
This EUROCONTROL specification has been recognised as a Community specification (CS) after a positive opinion of the Single Sky Committee and after publication of the specification’s reference in the Official Journal of the European Union.
