22 November 2020

The U.S. FAA lifted the grounding of the Boeing 737 MAX on November 18. In the days that followed, other regulators stated that they will not fully follow the FAA requirements.

EASA stated that “sufficient reason exists to require certain additional actions, deemed necessary to ensure safe operation of the affected aeroplanes, including pilot training.”
A proposed AD will be published for public consultation.

Transport Canada stated: “These differences will include additional procedures on the flight deck and pre-flight, as well as differences in training.”

Brazilian regulator ANAC reported: “ANAC recognizes the decision of the FAA and works on final adjustments of the validation process for returning the model to the country.”
