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.
