NOTAM Guidance Material
As a result of ICAO changes to NOTAM Selection Criteria the European AIS Database (EAD) will update to align with these changes from 11th Aug.
Whilst the NATS Internet Briefing System retrieves Pre Flight Information Bulletins (PIBs) from EAD there will be no impact to functionality as a result of these changes. However, users who postprocess PIBs may need to be aware of the changes.
If you require the latest ICAO NOTAM Selection Criteria you are strongly advised to review the Q Codes NOTAM Selection Criteria below
