ICB finalise draft position paper on SESAR Industrialisation



The Industry Consultation Body (ICB) was established under Article 6 of Regulation 549/2004, the SES Framework Regulation, with the strong support of all industry stakeholders. The group, which ERA is an active member, provides position papers and gives technical advice to the European Commission on the implementation of SES initiatives and legislation. 

This most recent position paper (please find in the download section of this page), which has just been approved by ICB members and the chair team, presents industry’s views on the main challenges to efficient industrialisation, along with a set of principles and recommendations for improvements in order to guide the European Commission o their proposal for reform of the Single European Sky.

Stakeholders’ resilience and survival depend on how well prepared the sector is to face future crises and challenges, building in the required scalability and adaptability to its business models, and requiring changes to the architecture and enabling concepts. The massive challenges arising from the covid-19 pandemic have opened up discussions away from “business as usual”, providing opportunities to explore the future and ensure industrialisation is being conducted as efficiently as possible.

The paper provides 10 recommendations across 3 primary principles:
•    Greater clarity required on concept maturity and evidence necessary for industrialisation
•    Ownership and accountability for industrialisation must be defined
•    Understanding effective implementation mechanisms
