With increasing numbers of airport locations already working with Airport CDM or currently in the project phase, the need for a harmonized approach became apparent.
An initial basis for the European A-CDM process is the EC standard specification EN 303212. However, the A-CDM developments in Germany have demonstrated further needs for harmonization not covered by the EU standard, or not addressed by it at the same level of detail.
The partners have recognized this need and established the A-CDM Harmonization Initiative in Germany. The partners signed a letter of intent setting out the terms of their cooperation.
