Croatia Airlines has implemented an integrated quality system that fulfills the requirements of the following norms: Air Operation Regulation, EASA Part 145, EASA Part 147, EASA Part CAMO, Aircrew Regulation, Directive 2003/87/EC (EU ETS) and ICAO Annex 16 (CORSIA), ISO 9001, ISO 50001 and ISO 14001.
Air Operation Regulation CR (EU) 965/2012
Air Operator Certificate
CR (EU) 965/2012 is a European and Croatian standard defining operational standards and organizational requirements which must be fulfilled by the air carrier operating a civil commercial air transportation service.
On April 19th 2003 we have received the above mentioned certificate from the Croatian Civil Aviation Authority at the Ministry of the Sea, Tourism, Transport and Development (today Croatian Civil Aviation Agency) confirming the fulfillment of the requirements defined in the Certificate.
Take a look at the certificate.
In 2001 Croatia Airlines obtained Maintenance Organisation Approval in accordance with JAR145. With the establishment of a unified civil aviation authority of European Union (EASA - European Aviation Safety Agency), common standard for aircraft maintenance organisation approval has been adopted, thus in 2004 respective approval has been changed to EASA Part 145.
In order to confirm adherence to EASA Part 145 requirements, annual audits has been performed by LBA (Lufthansa Bundesamt) experts on behalf of EASA. Simultaneously, Croatia Airlines has been maintaining the validity of equivalent Part 145 certificate issued by the Civil Aviation Authority at the Ministry of the Sea, Tourism, Transport and Development and today this certificate is being issued by the Croatian Civil Aviation Agency (CCAA).
As Croatia joined EU in July 2013, EASA Part 145 applicable to non-EU members has been superseded by Croatian approval HR.145.001 which became acknowledged and valid in EU.
Croatia Airlines received its initial maintenance training organization approval in 2005 according JAR 147 regulations applicable at the time. In 2007 new HR Part-147 approval was gained in accordance with 9A-Part-147 regulation for all aircraft types operated in Croatia Airlines fleet. Since 2012, Croatia Airlines gained maintenance training organization approval for basic training and several aircraft types training.
With the accession of Croatia to the EU on 1st July 2013, Croatian CAA approval HR.147.0001. became valid throughout European Union.

Continuing Airworthiness Management Organisation
Near the end of 2007 Croatia Airlines has met the required conditions for issuance of 9A Part M certificate with the authorisations under the Subpart G, thereby gaining the authority for independent execution of aircraft airworthiness as well as the issuance of airworthiness certificate. This certificate is based on 'Continuous Airworthiness Managament Organisation/Maintenance Organisation Exposition manual which is entirely harmonized with EU regulations. As Croatia joined EU in July 2013, Croatian approval HR.MG.001 became acknowledged and valid throughout EU.
Following the latest changes to the applicable EU regulations, in early 2022 Croatia Airlines Part M Subpart G approval was replaced with new Part CAMO approval – HR.CAMO.0001.
