Data Quality, a major objective in EAD


One of the major objectives of the EAD is to ensure the improvement of the quality of data. Data quality requirements will continue increasing to meet  the operational objectives and to respond to the changes of the EATM environment; as all parties use standardised rules and procedures, implemented at system level, and ensure cross-border consistency.
Additionally, other quality improvement measures have been taken to ensure that errors, which where not detected during data entry, in the EAD are identified and rectified, thus enhancing the quality of the data contained in EAD.


In order to ensure the required levels of quality, the data stored in EAD is reviewed in accordance with the QMS of the EAD Service Provider.This does not only include the data processed by the EAD Service Provider but it also includes the data updated by the migrated Data Providers. Furthermore for each error, the severity will be determined according to a specific classification which is based upon the potential risk resulting from the corruption of data and upon the use to which the item data is put as defined in ICAO Annex 15, item 3.2.8 and Appendix 7. In case of an original or Data Provider error, the relevant Data Provider and/or originating State are informed while all other errors are corrected by the EAD Service Provider.

Rigorous quality checking procedures have been put in place to ensure that the quality of the data within the whole EAD is of the highest level. The standardization of data input rules, together with data checking and rectification, are and will remain therefore one of the major focal points of everyone involved in the EAD to ensure, in time and relevant delivery of aeronautical information.

ADQ ~ IR 73/2010
Along with ICAO Annex 15 requirements, EAD is applying the Commission Regulation (EU) 73/2010 laying down requirements on the quality of aeronautical data and information for the Single European Sky (see note 1). As a  pan-European Aeronatical Information Service provider the level of compliance for the different European States is also monitored and provided as indicated in the table below.
