European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), is an agency of the European Community that deals with aviation safety. In particular, it issues an EASA Form 1, a discharge certificate authorising airworthiness in the European Union. There are different certificates depending on its usefulness. A manufacturer uses the EASA Form 52 to certify the conformity of the complete aircraft. The manufacturer uses EASA Form 1 to prove the conformity of parts: engines, propellers, equipment.
Federal Aviation Administration, is the equivalent of EASA. Together they represent the largest agencies that are eligible for certification. It is a government agency that regulates and controls civil and military aviation in the United States. It also deals with aircraft safety and flight conditions. Among other things, it issues an FAA Form 8130-3 which certifies parts registered in the USA. It can also certify parts going on aircraft registered in Europe thanks to the name “FAA form 8130-3 dual release EASA.” It is the same for a European certificate which will be entitled: “EASA Form 1 dual release FAA” .
