This is an agreement signed in 1999, in which CAANZ and CASA express their commitment to cooperate in the development of an aviation safety regulatory structure that will have only minimal national differences. It is expected that aviation standards developed in Australia and New Zealand will be recognized in both countries. The agreement recognises the existence of trans-Service legislation on mutual recognition, which provides a framework for the mutual recognition of personnel licensing standards and procedures, and intends to cooperate in the development of future agreements to facilitate the mutual recognition of aeronautical certifications in other areas (e.g. B design, manufacture, maintenance, etc.). It contains an agreement establishing a regular connection plan.
