ARSA Joins Effort to Extend “Critical Alternative” to MAG Mess

To see all of ARSA’s work on the MAG, visit arsa.org/mag.

On Aug. 2, ARSA joined 12 other industry groups on a petition to the FAA seeking extension or reissue of FAA Notice 8900.380.

The notice, which became effective in August 2016, addressed a key issue involving Change 6 to the FAA-EASA Maintenance Annex Guidance (MAG Change 6). It confirmed that a repair station may inspect and approve for return to service any new part within its ratings that does not meet the MAG Change 6 documentation provisions. (ARSA then released its Form E100 to provide an acceptable method of compliance for inspecting said parts.)

The notice is scheduled to be cancelled on Aug. 26 since the agency planned to incorporate this guidance into MAG Change 7, which has not been issued and appears unlikely to be released before the end of the month. The group’s petition requests an extension to prevent costly interruptions in the business of repair stations performing work under the MAG, noting that it provides a “critical alternative path to compliance”.
