The thing is: They lost trust in FAA.
Before the Max fiasco, they are quite on the same page with FAA / EASA for granting airworthiness certificate.
But now, they know they can't trust FAA (or anybody else) and have to evaluate the plane themselves. Which they should be doing in the first place, just like how FAA / EASA treated Soviet/Russian, Brazilian, and Chinese made planes.

That said, I doubt completely separate airworthiness certifications would caught MAX's problems... and potentially other regulation bodies will be probably more lax on new planes not associated with 737 MAX
