Aviation security: European Commission takes measures against SLOVENIA
The European Commission today decided to send a letter of formal notice to Slovenia, inviting the country to fully implement Regulation (EC) No 300/2008 that establishes common rules in civil aviation security.
This Regulation requires Member States to regularly update their national aviation security legislation.
Such legislation defines organisational structures, responsibilities and mechanisms to monitor compliance at national airports, airlines and aviation security-related entities.
This is to ensure that any security issue is swiftly detected and corrected.
Slovenia has not formally updated its aviation security legislation, and therefore does not fulfil all required conditions to effectively ensure that aviation security measures are implemented correctly.
The Commission has therefore decided to send a letter of formal notice to Slovenia, giving it four months to address the Commission’s concerns. Otherwise, the Commission may decide to send a reasoned opinion.
