SofemaOnline (SOL) www.sofemaonline.com considers best practice related to the provision of an effective Maintenance Repair Organisation (MRO) / Continuing Airworthiness Management Organisation (CAMO) Aircraft Technical Library.

Introduction

Strong Management of Technical documentation is an imperative for a well-run organisation. The effective administration of technical documentation and management of related aviation publications should never be overlooked and can adversely affect smooth-running and operational effectiveness if not managed to a high level.

The management of technical manuals and documents which are related to the establishment & maintenance of the aircraft, as well as to support the continued demonstration of organisation compliance with regulatory requirements is of critical importance to the success of the organisation.

CAMO Considerations Related to the Issue of EASA Airworthiness Review Certificate (ARC)

Considerations by Sofema Online (SOL) www.sofemaonline.com

Introduction

The issuance of the airworthiness review certificate (ARC) by the airworthiness review staff only certifies that the aircraft is considered airworthy in relation to the scope of the airworthiness review performed and the fact that the airworthiness review staff are not aware of instances of non-compliance which endanger flight safety. Furthermore, it only certifies that the aircraft is considered airworthy at the time of the review.
