UK CAA / HCAA Licenses = EASA

Hey guys!

Just wanted to know this one thing...

Why do some European airlines, of which the country of operation is in compliance with EASA standards, require licenses registered under their country?

I mean, everything is recognised under the same board (EASA), so why be picky as to which country their license is registered/converted under? Are there further restrictions under each country's CAA/licensing requirements? Isn't signing to EASA all about recognising all other signatory countries as the same state?

For example, EasyJet requires a UK CAA registered/converted license. Why wouldn't, eg., an HCAA license be allowed?

Thank you in advance

Aside from that fact that some of them actually make an effort to ensure that the licence represents a minimum standard.

Also the TRE's are restricted on what licenses they can sign off even though they are EASA.
