In the Basic Regulation,  Regulation (EU) 2018/1139 of 4 July 2018, the need of ATSEP being competent for performing his duties are expressed by:

(17) It is important that personnel used by ATM/ANS providers, such as Air Traffic Safety Electronics Personnel (‘ATSEP’) are appropriately qualified and trained to perform their duties. ATM/ANS providers should also implement training and checking programmes, taking into account the different types of safety-related tasks performed by their personnel. The implementing acts adopted under this Regulation and concerning responsibilities of ATM/ANS providers should lay down further detailed harmonised rules for such personnel, including ATSEP to ensure the necessary level of safety.

The Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2017/373 of 1 March 2017 laying down common requirements for providers of air traffic management/air navigation services and other air traffic management network functions and their oversight, details the requirements of ATSEP training in ANNEX XIII, REQUIREMENTS FOR SERVICE PROVIDERS CONCERNING PERSONNEL TRAINING AND COMPETENCE ASSESSMENT (Part-PERS).

A short history on the development of the ATSEP Training Manual

Until today ATSEP Training is being done at national ANSP level. However the need for harmonization of ATSEP training was recognized early 2000.

In 2002 Eurocontrol released their ESARR 5 document, acknowledging that ATSEP need to have a proven competence.
EXPLANATORY MATERIAL ON ESARR 5 REQUIREMENTS FOR ENGINEERS AND TECHNICAL PERSONNEL UNDERTAKING OPERATIONAL SAFETY-RELATED TASKS

During the period of 2001 to 2004, IFATSEA with support of Eurocontrol, created the first basic training guidelines for a Common Basic Level of Technical Training for Air Traffic Safety Electronics and qualification training guidelines for a Common Qualification Level of Technical Training for Air Traffic Safety Electronics Personnel.
