EASA Clarifies ICA Complaint Requirements

ARSA has received a response to its request to the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) for enforcement of the regulation regarding type certificate (TC) holders’ duty to provide instructions for continued airworthiness (ICAs) to repair stations. EASA’s letter acknowledged that TC holders must provide ICAs to persons required to comply with them, including repair stations holding EASA approvals, it stopped short of taking any action against the TC holders (i.e., Rolls Royce and Airbus).

The agency reasoned that despite the Association’s documented evidence of repeated requests and the TC holder’s outright denials of ICA, the member repair stations still did not show that the instructions were not available to the extent approved by EASA. Further, EASA reasoned that the complaint did not demonstrate that absolutely no agreement could be reached between the parties. ARSA plans to respond with appropriate information and will keep its members informed of future developments.
