Certification under CS-22 of the JS1 Jonkers Sailplane

La demande a été rejetée par Agence européenne de la sécurité aérienne.

Dear European Aviation Safety Agency,

Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting documents which contain the following information:

Any and all information related to the attempted EASA CS-22 certification by M&D Flugzeugbau GMBH of a South African sailplane based on the Jonkers JS1.

No commercially sensitive information is being requested. What is sought are documents to enable understanding of where M&D is in the certification process and the basis for current delays.

Yours faithfully,

Rian Monnahan

Rian Monnahan a laissé une remarque ()

EASA denied the request referring to EC Rgulation 1049/2001 Articles 2 and 3:

Art 2 : The institutions shall refuse access to a document where disclosure would undermine the protection of:
---commercial interests of a natural or legal person, including
intellectual property,
(…)
Art 3 : Access to a document, drawn up by an institution for
internal use or received by an institution, which relates to a
matter where the decision has not been taken by the institu-
tion, shall be refused if disclosure of the document would
seriously undermine the institution's decision-making process,
(...)

Apparently the Agency fears that disclosure will both undermine M&D's commercial interests and the Agency's decision-making ability.
