Who issues the EMAR Requirements?

European Defence Ministers tasked the EDA (European Defence Agency) to prepare for the creation of a formal EU-wide Forum for Military Airworthiness Authorities and to propose a roadmap for European military airworthiness harmonisation and how this could be implemented. The MAWA Forum is chaired and supported by the EDA, but it does not have the authority to impose airworthiness regulations on individual nations, who retain their sovereignty for military airworthiness. This all means that the EMAR’s are published on the website of the EDA, but depends on the participating member states to adopt them.
