The One ARSA Missed: Type Certificated Cabbages?
November 13, 2014
On Nov. 12, the FAA corrected another seven-letter mistake in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) that ARSA and farmers around the world missed.
The agency updated 14 CFR part 43.10(c)(6) to replace the word “produce” with “product” in a paragraph regarding the control of life-limited aircraft parts. Previously, the rule incorrectly read: “The part may be mutilated to deter its installation in a type certificated produce [emphasis added].”
A plain reading of this sentence would indicate that out of time life-limited parts were potentially being installed into cabbages, corn cobs, beet bundles and other produce, and that those items were subject to type certification. Considering part 21’s lack of procedures for farm-raised foodstuffs, the rule might have created chaos for regulators and confusion at farmers’ markets worldwide.
The FAA’s action has restored clarity to 43.10(c)(6).
