The legislation is known officially as Council Regulation (EEC) No 3922/91 on harmonizing technical requirements and administrative procedures in civil aviation. EU-Ops refers to European Union (EU) regulations specifying minimum safety and related procedures for commercial passenger and cargo fixed-wing aviation.

(The regulations are derived from and are similar to JAR-OPS 1, after consultations between the EU and Joint Aviation Authorities (JAA) in 1997). Since then, the rules will be superseded by EASA-OPS.
