ARSA Urges EASA to Clarify and Adjust

On April 20, 2010, ARSA urged the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) to clarify, and adjust, its part documentation requirements for EASA Part-145 approval holders in the United States and FAA part 145 certificate holders in Europe. Topics addressed in the letter include tagging requirements for: the new and maintained parts supplied to an FAA/EASA Part-145 repair station in the U.S.; the transfer of a new part from the production approval holder division to the FAA/EASA Part-145 repair station of the same company in the U.S.; a recovered or “robbed” part from within the same FAA/EASA Part-145 repair station in the US; and new parts from a U.S. production approval holder received by a European FAA/EASA Part-145 repair station in Europe (that is not located in France, Germany or Ireland – the U.S. has a bilateral aviation safety agreement with maintenance implementation procedures in place with those countries). The letter also asks EASA to conclude that parts are not exports if immediate physical transfer to the European Union does not take place.

ARSA’s letter may be found here.
