FAA Stores & Receiving Inspection Procedures

FAA UAE Regulations 09Brochure ButtonThe Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) receiving inspection system for aircraft parts and material aims to establish traceability, and that parts were designed and manufactured in accordance with the U.S. Code of Federal Regulations Title 14 (14 CFR) Part 21; produced to established industry standards and, were previously determined to be airworthy under 14 CFR Part 43.

To ensure these requirements are met, FAA certificated repair stations require its personnel to be trained to acquire adequate knowledge to reduce the risk of allowing unairworthy parts entering into the aeronautical supply chain system and maintain compliance.

The FAA Federal Aviation Regulations (FARs) that drive the receiving inspection and stores distribution system, and relevant guidance material includes aircraft identification marking, certification and maintenance.

This online training provides detailed guidance on how to establish an enhanced receiving inspection system to help eliminate the safety risk posed by unairworthy parts, or materials.

Attending this training will place organization’s in the best position to ensure that articles being purchased as new or returned to service after maintenance conform to type design, or specifications and meet airworthiness requirements.
