Key takeaways

  • During the course of its existence the status and powers of the Interstate Aviation Committee have often come under fire from the Russian aviation community;
  • The recent incident involving the possible discontinuation of the type certification for Boeing 737 Classic and NG aircraft prompted the Russian government to relieve this body of its authority to carry out aircraft type certification;
  • The new arrangements, whereby all such authority will vest in Rosaviatsiya, is intended to make the Russian aircraft certification system clearer and more predictable.
