Whopity, you come to this from a background of considerable experience and knowledge. With regard to the ELP it is of course a ICAO requirement not a EASA initiative so all worldwide international valid licenses require it. It was a EASA decision to not include the UK requirement for a FRTOL stand alone licence for licenced pilots. Most states already included the privileges into a pilot licence. The separate FRTOL was, after all, very much a UK thing. It has been my belief and also my experience that where an applicant for a UK EASA compliant licence had previously held a UK FRTOL (expired or not); then they had satisfied the requirements for the RT privileges to be included in the UK EASA licence. I have never had an application rejected due to an expired FRTOL.
