Following the debate about FAA and Boeing certification practices, I was wondering whether Europe could potentially require the Boeing 737 Max to be certified by a European agency. Is a FAA certificate de facto valid in other countries ? Or are all planes required to be certified by local authorities too ?
Update : Despite FAA certification being valid throughout the world, it appears EASA will conduct its own review of the fixes implemented by Boeing. It is not a proper re-certification, but the plane will have to comply with EASA in order to be able to fly again in the European airspace. More about this here (FT paywall).
