Digitalization Survey to Instruct International Regulators

ARSA has partnered with several industry allies in conducting an aviation digitalization survey. Member companies are encouraged to participate. 

The survey seeks feedback from maintainers, manufacturers, operators, lessors, and others regarding current practices and regulatory issues associated with the digitalization of information. It is being conducted by ARSA and the other associations that participate in the Maintenance Management Team (MMT), a coordinating body of four leading aviation authorities (FAA, EASA, ANAC Brazil, and TCCA).

The MMT is investigating how to promote broader use, acceptance, and availability of digital data and records. The authorities have established a working group to consider a quadrilateral approach to the use of digital data and records. The industry representatives have also established their own working group to provide the end user perspectives. Developed by MMT’s Digitalization Industry Working Group, the survey solicits feedback regarding the challenges and recommendations for improvement to meet these objectives. 

Responses will be compiled into a broader summary delivered to multiple civil aviation authorities to identify regulatory barriers and provide recommendations for improvement. Individual responses and data will not be shared outside the associations sponsoring this survey. 

The survey will close on Oct. 15, 2023.

To take the survey, please go to Individuals from larger organizations should coordinate with colleagues to ensure a single submission.

If you have questions, please contact ARSA Executive Vice President Christian A. Klein.
