About SACN - Legal basis

  • EEC Regulation 95/93 as amended by EC Regulation 793/2004 (“the Regulation”); this regulation provides the basis for slot coordination in the EU Member States and deals with conditions, the role and powers of the coordinator, coordination committee, airport capacity, allocation process, monitoring, sanctions, etc. Of particular importance is that the slot coordinator carries out its duties in an independent manner and shall act in a neutral, non-discriminatory and transparent way. (see www.euaca.org under 'library')
  • Dutch law; the EEC Regulation 95/93, as amended, is implemented via national legislation in the Royal Decree Slot allocation and Ministerial Decisions. The Ministerial Decree (Besluit Slotallocatie) deals with the designation of coordinated airports in the Netherlands, the designation of SACN as the independent slot coordinator and the designation of a Coordination Committee. Laws and decisions setting limits to the production of noise by operating aircraft at airports.
  • IATA Worldwide Slot Guidelines; these guidelines are adapted every half year (July and December) and are applied worldwide. In case these guidelines are in conflict with the existing EC Regulation, the Regulation prevails.
    (see www.euaca.org under 'library')
  • The EUACA (European Union Airport Coordination Association) has developed Recommended Practises on the interpretation, clarification and implementation of the EU Regulation (www.EUACA.org)
  • Note 1: Traffic rights and slots are separate issues and airlines need both to carry out commercial operations.
  • Note 2: In addition to airport slots an airline is also obliged to submit flight plans to Air Traffic Control who will allocate ‘ATC slots’.
