Mandates and Regulatory Updates
The ADS-B and PBN mandates arrives in 2020. With just a few months to go, is the industry ready and aware of the latest details? What are the latest updates in other mandates and regulation, such as GADSS, and how will these impact the industry and supply chain? Key institutions governing the strategy of regulation and compliance will give an overview of the changing landscape, including standardisation, certification and operational improvements.
Chair: Luc Deneufchatel, Technical Secretary Expert, EUROCAE
