Quick Question – The Dynamic Regulatory System
It’s been more than six months since the FAA unveiled its Dynamic Regulatory System and the agency is preparing to decommission the Flight Systems Information Management System (FSIMS). As is already the case for certification-related guidance, the contents of Order 8900.1 must be accessed via the DRS.
As reported in the August 2021 hotline, “the DRS is a comprehensive knowledge center that combines an ever-expanding number of document types from more than a dozen repositories into a single searchable application. It will keep growing.”
The FAA has asked for help from ARSA members to improve the resource. Provide feedback on your experience with the DRS by answering this month’s “quick question,” then review the steps suggested by the agency and ensure they are circulated through your organization.

Utilizing the DRS
(1) Make sure drs.faa.gov is bookmarked on every computer in your facility and a regular stop for regulatory compliance questions. (EDITOR’S NOTE: The authors encourage you to make the DRS your first stop for questions, but graciously accepted the association’s reminder that members should “Ask ARSA First.”)
(2) Carefully review instructions available at drs.faa.gov/help.
(3) Every time you use the system, consider the experience. How could it be better? Submit thoughts by clicking on “DRS Feedback” on the top banner of the site and submitting the form.
