Licence transfer Part-66

Kiwa Register is the designated competent authority if you want to transfer your Part-66 AML (for example a UK licence) to the Netherlands.
At Kiwa Register we issue well over 100,000 licences to professionals (e.g., airline engineers, airline pilots, ship captains) and to companies (e.g., airlines, truck companies and shipping companies). At Kiwa Register we process and review aircraft maintenance licence (Part-66) applications and transfers in accordance with EASA standards. Our experienced staff will process your request within seven days. To apply for a state transfer of licence, you must hold an EASA Part-66 Aircraft Maintenance Licence (AML).
The fee for a first issue Part-66 AML is applicable in the case of a state transfer of licence (check the rates here).  

EASA Brexit Guidance Bulletin

On 31 January 2020, EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency) published a "Brexit Guidance Bulletin". Considering what is stated in paragraph 7 "Conclusion", we will accept all applications for a licence transfer from the United Kingdom to the Netherlands if submitted before the Brexit date, even if processing the application and the issue of the licence will take place after the Brexit date.
The United Kingdom left the EU on 31 January 2020. The withdrawal agreement will be negotiated from this date on. There is a transition period until 31 December 2020 during which the EU regulations will continue to apply to the United Kingdom. The licences will therefore be valid after 31 January 2020. Whether the licences will also be valid after 31 December 2020 is part of the negotiations with the United Kingdom.

How to apply?

Please inform the CAA of the country that issued your licence that you want to transfer your Part-66 AML before you submit the application, and also enquire about the conditions for the licence transfer. Send an application with the following documents:

  • a filled out application form;
  • a copy of your Part-66 AML;
  • a copy of your passport. 

What happens next?

After receiving your complete application (application form, required attachments and payment), we strive to process your application within seven days. We will wait for your dossier to be transferred to the Netherlands. After we receive the confirmation that your licence has been withdrawn in the country you are transferring from, we will be able to issue your licence.
After granting your application request, we will issue your Dutch Part-66 AML. If you have a correspondence address in the Netherlands, we will send your licence by regular post. It is also possible to make arrangements for a courier to collect your licence from our office.
Please note: we cannot be held accountable for any aspect which is the responsibility of the authority from which the licence is transferred. If you make arrangements for a courier to collect your licence from our office, make sure to provide us with a shipping document.
If a licence has national limitations this may restrict/prevent the transfer being completed.
