Plans are underway to update and implement new rules and regulations regarding different aspects of Iranian airports, based on the European Aviation Safety Agency's protocols.
Speaking to Financial Tribune, Director of Air Navigation Systems and Aerodromes with the Iran Civil Aviation Organization explained that the new rules generally fall within three main categories: design, construction and operations of airports.
Mohammad Saeed Sharafi also said that the new EASA rules on aerodromes have been studied for a year before they were communicated to airports across the country about two weeks ago.
“The new rules, in essence, develop a ‘new approach’ compared to old ones,” Sharafi said, adding that the previous rules only concerned outputs and results, and did not matter how the results were achieved. 
For instance, airports were previously asked to have a runway of a certain size, but how it was built was not important. But the new rules now target processes and how outcomes are obtained as well.
