Once the aircraft operator’s registration is accepted to use the EASA Environmental Portal, EASA will send the Master User two emails
- One email containing the user login information with the username
- Another email with a temporary password
Once access has been secured to EASA Environmental Portal, the aircraft operator must provide documentation regarding aircraft noise to the portal:
- Aircraft nationality and registration mark.
- Noise documentation of the aircraft used, together with the associated maximum take-off weight.
- Any modification of the aircraft which affects its noise performance, as stated on the noise documentation.
The aircraft operator can use one of the two following options when providing noise documentation:
- Option One
- The documentation may be a stand-alone noise certificate issued by the state of registry, reflecting the configuration details, registration marks, and noise data of the aircraft such as those specified by ICAO Annex 16 Volume I Chapter 1.
- This option is not applicable to Canadian or US operators since these CAA’s do not issue stand-alone noise data certificates.
- Option Two
- In case it is not issued by a state of registry, the documentation may be a page/set of pages of the AFM or AOM, approved by a certificating authority containing the following information:
- Aircraft Designation
- Aircraft Serial Number
- Engine Designation
- Maximum Take-off Mass (MTOM)
- Maximum Landing Mass (MLM)
- Certificate of Airworthiness
- Chapter of ICAO Annex 16 or Stage of Part 36 w/Noise Certificate levels
The FAA encourages operators to gather the following information from their AFM and/or AOM, then carry the documentation onboard in the event of a ramp inspection.
Note that noise certificates or data sheets issued by OEMs are not accepted.
