The EUROCONTROL Specification for Operational ANS Performance Monitoring - Airport Operator Data Flow (APDF), details the data exchange requirements between reporting entities and EUROCONTROL, and subsequent data handling processes.
It supports the regular operational ANS performance monitoring and reporting under the EUROCONTROL Performance Review System established under the ECAC Institutional Strategy for Air Traffic Management (1997) and the Single European Sky Performance Scheme established under Implementing Regulation (EU) No 390/2013.
The collected data is used to analyse and compare operational ANS performance (e.g. performance monitoring and benchmarking), supports the validation of other data sources processed by the EUROCONTROL Agency, and the production of regular Agency reports and studies based on aggregated results of the operational performance data (e.g. Performance Review Report, PRU and CODA publications).
This Specification has been developed in close collaboration with the community of reporting entities.
