    Between the EC and SDM it is agreed that on the subject of Data-Link Services (DLS) implementation:
    1) The first full Deployment Programme (DP V1) to be delivered to EC for its approval in June 2015 with the objective to steer the CEF Calls for Proposals expected at the end of 2015 will only address DLS in its monitoring part, ensuring continuity with IDSG’s monitoring for DLS.
    2) SDM’s project view for DLS implementation will be introduced in the second version of the full Deployment Programme (DP V2) to be delivered to EC for its approval in June 2016 with the objective to steer the CEF Calls for Proposals expected at the end of 2016. The main reason for postponing DLS’ project view to DP V2 in June 2016 is that SDM remains dependent on SJU’s planning for validating EASA’s technical recommendation. SJU’s validation is expected by June 2016.

    It is underlined that SDM will act with respect to DLS as for any other enabler to PCP ATM functionalities. DLS represents an extension of SDM’s scope. It is not an area in which the SDM will play a special role.

    SDM has not been requested to play any specific role with respect to SPI or CVS Implementing Regulations. When those Regulations have common enablers with the PCP Regulation, SDM will play its role as defined in Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 409/2013.
