This week the Aeronautical Repair Station Association (ARSA) posted a press release on its website that should have interest to many in the aircraft maintenance community. The FAA Modernization and Reform Act of 2012 mandated the FAA establish an ARC with both industry and government representation to review regulatory processes particularly relating to certification and application of the associated processes.
Comments are regularly heard about a lack of consistent application of regulations and interpretation of regulations and FAA guidance. According to ARSA, after receiving feedback the ARC will develop recommendations and submit a final report to the FAA by the end of this year and the administrator is then required to submit the FAA’s report on efforts to improve standardization to Congress by February 15, 2013.
On September 7th at 11:00 a.m. EDT, the ARC will host a webinar providing an update on its efforts. I’m sure many of you have first-hand experience relating to this issue.
