During the association’s 2014 Annual Repair Symposium “Opening Salvo” with the Federal Aviation Administration’s Aircraft Certification Office, an ARSA member informed the agency that some of its designees are still insisting on putting “Domestic Shipment Only” or “Not for Export” on FAA Form 8130-3s for new articles. The company was told that the practice was being taught to designees during FAA training even though it is no longer required by regulation or guidance material. The result is unnecessary delays and increased costs when foreign customers subsequently reject the parts.
The FAA representatives at the event agreed that the practice was not required and promised to look into the matter. Subsequently, the agency verified that the instructions were not being provided by its training and has agreed to issue an internal memorandum to ensure its personnel are not incorrectly advising industry that the verbiage is mandatory.
