Juan Anton, cybersecurity in aviation and emerging risks section manager, will discuss the recent cybersecurity NPA that addresses your business and employees rather than just the aircraft and certification.

Jean-Pierre Arnaud, safety management expert, will present a thorough overview of implementation of Reg (EU) 1183/2019 (Part-CAMO and SMS) and how the SMS mandate will affect your business.

Alberto Fernandez Lopez will discuss the rulemaking update and information on installation of parts without EASA Form 1. This will have a significant influence on you and your abilities to support your customers' demands for safety-enhancing technologies.
