The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) recently finished reviewing the Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA) notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) on Part 145 Repair Stations--Ratings and Quality System Requirements. The OMB deemed the NPRM not to be economically significant and concurred that the proposed action is necessary to reflect changes in aviation technology and repair station business practices. The NPRM has been returned to the FAA where the rulemaking process will continue. Any changes made by the OMB will not be visible until the NPRM is published.
NATA will monitor the continuation of the rulemaking process at the FAA and will notify members as soon as the NPRM is released for comment.
