just reading about AP in the other thread
my question is
how does it work for parts that have FAA STC can they be used/installed on EASA reg aircrafts (parts like AP or instruents from aerologic as example)
FAA STCs have to be EASA-validated for use on EU aircraft.
Does EASA accept FAA STCs? Very wide question I know but my question relates to a simple and straightforward engine monitor updated replacement?
In simple terms, no, not directly, as wigglyamp states above.
You can use an FAA STC, or the design data used to obtain it, to obtain an EASA STC, but it isn’t trivial. Some info here.
To my knowledge only Australia accepts FAA STCs directly but in the past here have been some easy conversions e.g. the UK CAA granted many AANs purely on the basis of an FAA STC. Some background info e.g. here but this isn’t useful for new stuff.
In simple terms, yes.
Do not get fooled by ignorance ;-)
it is a very easy and straightforward procedure:
Which monitor did you chose?
The UK CAA will now accept STC ‘s from Australia, Canada and the USA for annex 2 aircraft………… this is a far too pragmatic approach for EASA.

That’s excellent news.
mh, if you really have to post just a zero-content one-liner, could you please keep it at least non-rude?
To get a useful discussion, can anyone think of reasons why EASA doesn’t accept FAA STCs? And no, it is no good saying that this is because the FAA doesn’t accept EASA ones. Since EASA ones are much more prescriptive than FAA ones, generally, FAA would likely happily accept them.
Let me throw in a few guesses as to why EASA doesn’t accept FAA STCs.
Any other reasons?
EASA is not the only one doing this. Most national CAAs don’t accept foreign STCs, presumably because most/all of them are getting regular money from the STC holders
