SofemaOnline looks at the challenges related to the potential uncertainty of the status of instructions for continued airworthiness (ICA) and needs, therefore, to avoid there being too much room for interpretation in the rules and standards, leading to differences and possible safety risks.

The specific objective is to establish clear requirements and responsibilities for all parties involved in the production of ICA, their approval and their implementation.

The Notice of Proposed Amendment (NPA) proposes to amend Annex I (Part 21) of Regulation (EU) No 748/2012 to clarify that ICA are part of the type certificate (TC) and to develop the related acceptable means of compliance (AMC) and guidance material (GM).

It also merges the requirements related to record-keeping, manuals and ICA in the various subparts into a single requirement for each of these aspects in Subpart A (new points 21.A.5, 6 and 7).
