Our support

We help our customers to understand the EASA requirements for the certification of ETSO products, to implement them according to requirements and to anchor them practically in their operations. We support our customers in the preparation of technical documentation, verification and in the establishment of QM-side operational structures for the ADOA.

Our competences

When it comes to consulting, training or approval support for ETSO products, we are among the most competent contacts in the EU. We have in-depth expertise in documentation creation and verification. In recent years, we have assisted with numerous product approvals and ADOA applications.

What is an ETSO authorisation?

What is the ETSO standard about?

The European Technical Standard Order (ETSO) is a standard for certain components, devices and materials used in civil aircraft. ETSO parts therefore have their own official approval. However, it should be noted that this is only a minimum standard that defines the basic performance and properties of the component concerned. The components concerned and their minimum requirements are laid down in the CS-ETSO, our own construction regulations. Essential requirements are defined in EASA Part 21 O. Typical components subject to the ETSO standard include instruments, seats, tyres, rescue and safety equipment and APUs.

How is an ETSO approval obtained?

The approval of an ETSO product is done by applying to the EASA. For this purpose, comprehensive information regarding design and performance characteristics (Declaration of Design & Performance – DDP) must be submitted to EASA. At the same time, if there is no design organisation approval according to Part 21J, an alternative ADOA approval (Alternative Procedures to Design Organisation Approval) is required, with which the organisation can demonstrate appropriate organisational structures, design competence and the necessary resources.

The production of an ETSO product requires an approval according to EASA Part 21G.

The average engineer and QM officer is usually sufficiently busy in day-to-day operations even without the introduction of an ETSO approval. Focus your capacities on your business, we show you the way and take care of the details of your approval and the adaptation of your quality management system where possible.
Together with the support of AeroImpulse, you focus only on the essential aspects of ETSO approval. Minimize your effort for familiarization and interpretation of the EASA specifications and the interpretation material. Avoid taking unnecessary actions or making things worse on your documentation.
