Based on the technical issues regarding the overall authorization process this article proposes an improved authorization for placing in service (APIS) process to be used as an harmonized reference at EU level. The main steps composing the proposal are defined with a general view on the overall authorization framework. A process flow was elaborated, considering the available European legislation and national specifics.
