On November 18 2006 ENAC, the Italian Civil Aviation Authority, issued a new regulation for the certification of providers of handling services operating in Italian airports. Article 6 of the regulation provides specific requirements for entry into the handling market. A handling company must:
The safety and quality requirements must be confirmed by a certificate, which is valid for a three-year period (Article 2) and can be renewed at the operator's request for a further three years, subject to a positive outcome of the checks carried out by ENAC's Technical Department (Article 9).
The regulation also provides for fines for non-compliant operators. In particular, Article 8 authorizes (i) the imposition of administrative fines pursuant to Article 1174 of the Navigation Code for breaches of the rules on quality standards, and (ii) the suspension or revocation of certification in the event of repeated non-compliance and/or serious organizational failings.
