EASA published a proposal to the European Commission on new operational rules to better support pilot mental fitness. Released in a document known as an Opinion 14/2016 , the proposals include new requirements. 

These requirements are contained in the so-called Air OPS Implementing Rules.

The proposed rules have been subject to consultation with all stakeholders concerned.

As part of a total system approach, they complement the proposals EASA issued in August 2016, on the update of medical requirements for pilots.

The proposals address relevant safety recommendations made after the Flight 9525 ac­cident by the EASA-led Task Force, as well as by the French Bureau d’Enquêtes et d’Analyses.
