South Asian Regional Initiatives (SARI) is a program agreed upon by the South Asian States and commenced in 2006 and is active to date. Initially, the initiative was funded and supported by the European Commission and the Aircraft Industry. However, later on, in 2017, the program was formally included in the EU-SA Aviation Partnership Project. Initially, the emphasis was solely on achieving regional regulatory harmonization in the field of Airworthiness, aligning with EASA regulations. Following the successful implementation of Airworthiness regulations, SARI has extended its scope to include Aircrew and Air Operations regulations. Additionally, consideration is being given to addressing other domains such as Aerodromes and Air Navigation in subsequent stages of the initiative. The ongoing EU-SA APP phase II has a key objective of extending sustained assistance to SARI, building upon the dedicated efforts undertaken in the previous project phase.

 

Considering the successful rule development in the Aircrew and Operations domains directly derived from EASA Aircrew and Air Operations regulations, SARI Member States are experiencing a smooth and efficient process without complications, delays, or challenges during both rule-making and subsequent implementation phases. A similar approach has been decided for the field of Airworthiness, where EASA Air regulations will serve as the reference instead of SARI Air Parts. This decision is rooted in the understanding that failure to directly adopt EASA regulations may lead to potential misalignment with future amendments to EASA regulations. Moreover, adopting EASA regulations directly for the creation or revision of the national regulations of SARI Member States leads to significant savings in terms of resources, energy, and valuable time. Furthermore, this approach empowers Member States to independently revise their regulations in future without any difficulty.

The following links to EASA Regulations provide information that can facilitate the proper implementation of the regulations in all concerned domains.
