Notes Concerning Part CAMO & PART CAO

a) Part-CAMO provides requirements for Continuing Airworthiness Management Organisation (CAMO): compared with Part-M Subpart G organization, the main difference is the introduction of SMS principles.

b) Part-CAO provides a new set of requirements for Combined Airworthiness Organisation: such an organization may perform CAMO activities or Maintenance Organisation activities, or both, but limited to non-complex aircraft not used by a licensed air carrier.
