EC Raps Cyprus over Air Safety Rules

 - October 4, 2006, 5:28 AM

The European Commission (EC) last month warned Cyprus that it is one step away from being taken to the Court of Justice over its failure to implement European aviation safety rules. According to the EC, the Cyprus government has failed to adopt European standards for air accident investigation, which should have been on the statute books of the Mediterranean state when it joined the European Union in May last year. Cyprus now has just two months to introduce the necessary legislation or be brought before the Court of Justice.
