In addition to airworthiness certification, basas, MoUs and WAs offer bilateral cooperation in other areas of aviation, including maintenance, air operations and environmental certification. Working procedures are a type of agreement with a foreign CAA with which the FAA has not entered into a bilateral agreement. They are used to define methods by enabling the FAA aircraft certification service to assist another state in authorizing aeronautical products and items exported from the United States to that state. Bilateral agreements and agreements allow the sharing of the airworthiness certificate for civil aviation products between two countries. These agreements will ensure the continuity of agreements with the United States, Canada, Brazil and Japan when the United Kingdom leaves the European Union. Bilateral agreements facilitate mutual airworthiness certification of civilian aviation products imported and exported between two signatory states. A bilateral airworthiness agreement (BAA) or a bilateral aviation security agreement (BASA) establishing airworthiness implementation procedures (IAP) provide for technical aviation cooperation between the FAA and its civil aviation authorities. In addition to airworthiness certification, bilateral aviation security agreements offer bilateral cooperation in a wide range of areas, including maintenance, air operations and environmental certification. With regard to aircraft certification, an additional document, an airworthiness implementation process, is being developed on certain areas, such as design approvals, production activities, export airworthiness authorization, design and technical cooperation.
