COUNCIL DIRECTIVE 92/14/EEC of 2 March 1992 on the limitation of the operation of aeroplanes covered by Part II, Chapter 2, Volume 1 of Annex 16 to the Convention on International Civil Aviation, second edition (1988)

THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Economic Community, and in particular Article 84 (2) thereof,

Having regard to the proposal from the Commission(1) ,

Having regard to the opinion of the European Parliament(2) ,

Having regard to the opinion of the Economic and Social Committee(3) ,

Whereas the application of noise emission standards to civil subsonic jet aeroplanes has significant consequences for the provision of air transport services, in particular where such standards limit the useful life of aeroplanes operated by airlines; whereas Council Directive 80/51/EEC(4) , fixes limits on emission of such noise;

Whereas Council Directive 89/629/EEC(5) limits the addition to the civil air registers of Member States of aeroplanes that only comply with the standards specified in Part II, Chapter 2, Volume 1 of Annex 16 to the Convention on International Civil Aviation, second edition (1988); whereas that Directive specifies that the limitation on addition is only a first stage;

Whereas the programme of action of the European Communities on the environment(6) shows clearly the importance of the problem of noise and, in particular, the need to take action against noise due to air traffic;

Whereas, owing to the problem of growing congestion at Community airports, it is essential to ensure that the best use is made of existing facilities; whereas this will only be possible if environmentally acceptable aeroplanes are used;

Whereas the work undertaken by the Community in cooperation with other international bodies indicates that measures to limit the operation of aeroplanes which do not comply with the standards of Chapter 3 of Annex 16 must follow any non-addition rule in order for this to be of environmental benefit;

Whereas common rules for this purpose should be introduced on a reasonable time-scale to ensure a harmonized approach throughout the Community, supplementing existing rules; whereas this is particularly important in view of the recent trend towards progressive liberalization of European air traffic;

Whereas aeroplane noise should be further reduced, taking into account environmental factors, technical feasibility and economic consequences;

Whereas it is appropriate to restrict the operation of civil subsonic jet aeroplanes on Member States' registers to those which comply with the standards of Chapter 3 of Annex 16; whereas a timetable for the gradual withdrawal from Member States' registers of those aeroplanes which do not meet Chapter 3 standards would represent a facility both for airlines and for manufacturers;

Whereas special consideration should be given to the problems of developing nations;

Whereas in cases of technical or economic difficulty, it would be reasonable to grant limited exemptions,

HAS ADOPTED THIS DIRECTIVE:

Article 1

  • 1. 
    The objective of this Directive is to restrict the operation of civil subsonic jet aeroplanes as specified in Article 2.
  • 2. 
    This Directive shall apply to aeroplanes with a maximum take-off mass of 34 000 kg or more with a certified maximum internal accommodation for the aeroplane type in question consisting of more than nineteen passenger seats, excluding any seats for crew only.

Article 2

  • 1. 
    Member States shall ensure that, as...
