Introduction

As an industry, we have anticipated the need for the development of Part M, in particular, to better address the needs of the General Aviation Community for some time.

EASA has now commenced a significant transition which will see the demise of Part M Subpart G by September 2021 at the latest.

Part M Subpart G will be replaced by Part CAMO.

EASA Part M is a core element of the Continuing Airworthiness Regulation (EU No 1321/2014) which establishes the regulation involving continuing airworthiness of the aircraft, its parts and appliances as well as the organisations and personnel involved.

Part M is annex 1 to the regulation and Part CAMO is Annex Vc.

What needs to happen now?

To establish an appropriate level of competence and knowledge within the CAMO group and to answer the following questions:

1/ Are you fully briefed and aware of the new rules and your obligations?
2/ Do you have a transition plan within your organisation – how will you implement SMS?
3/ Are you familiar with the impact of these changes and the need for Initial and Recurrent Training?
4/ Are you familiar with both the need for SMS and enhanced reporting requirements that your organisation will need to comply with?

General Notes

Part-CAMO is applicable for both aircraft used by licensed air carriers as well as Complex Motor Powered Aircraft CMPA

Part-CAMO will supersede the existing Subpart-G of Annex I (Part-M) however both are valid during the transition.

Part-CAMO includes provision for SMS.

SMS guidance may be found in the following document

Opinion 06/2016 (NPA/CRD 2013-01A/B, RMT.0251/MDM.055) - Embodiment of safety management system (SMS) requirements into Commission Regulation (EU) No 1321/2014
