India, US to sign aviation safety agreementNovember 25th, 2010 - 10:01 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, Nov 25 (IANS) The country’s aerospace segment is poised to grow with India and the US set to sign the Bilateral Aviation Safety Agreement (BASA) that would usher in mutual acceptance of aeronautical products and parts developed in either country, the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) Thursday said.
“The agreement would be signed within next 6-8 weeks, whereby the aerospace products could be inspected and certified by DGCA and the products could be then exported,” said Nasim Zaidi, Director General of Civil Aviation, DGCA.
According to Zaidi, the country’s aeronautical products industry is fast growing as more design and manufacturing is being shifted to India and it will reap the benefits of the agreement.
Earlier, the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) conducted a ‘Shadow Certification’ exercise with DGCA officials on a sample product, where it was found that the Indian standard certification procedures are acceptable for high class aeronautical products.
