(1) A description (or reference to data
acceptable to the administrator) of work
performed.
(2) The date of completion of the work
performed.
(3) The name of the person performing
the work if other than the person
specified in paragraph (a)(4) of this
section.
(4) If the work performed on the aircraft,
airframe, aircraft engine, propeller,
appliance, or component part has been
performed satisfactorily, the signature,
certificate number, and kind of certificate
held by the person approving the work.
The signature constitutes the approval
for return to service only for the work
performed.
If we take the language literally, one could
assume that for a large maintenance action, the
name of every employee who touched that article
would be listed in the maintenance record for
a single return to service. This could easily be
100-plus names at a large repair station. This is
not logical.
Going back to the regulations, section 43.3
states who may perform maintenance, while
section 43.7 identifies those persons who are
authorized to approve for return to service after
maintenance. There are nine people listed in
section 43.3 who may perform maintenance;
however, three of those "people" are
organizations: a repair station (43.3(e)), an air
carrier (43.3 (f)), and a manufacturer (43.3 (j)).
Of the seven persons identified in section 43.7
for return to service, three are organizations:
repair station (43.7 (c)), a manufacturer (43.7
(d)), and an air carrier (43.7 (e)).
As such, when a repair station is performing the
work and the repair station is approving for return
to service the maintenance, they are acting as the
same person and double entry is not necessary.
You will find internal repair station recordkeeping
requirements will track each individual who
has worked on an article on behalf of the repair
station. But in most cases, it will be the repair
station that both performs the work and approves
the work for return to service. q

TCCA issues direction on
undocumented parts
Transport Canada Civil Aviation has been
working on improving guidance for the appropriate
documentation required to install parts on aircraft. In
2019, it published AC 571-024, which covered what
is considered appropriate documentation to identify an
airworthy part. This AC does not cover undocumented
parts, as these undocumented parts require a moredetailed process in order to be determined airworthy.
In 2018, the TCCA made the decision to remove
the requirement for the approval of undocumented
parts processes and instead plans to provide guidance
on how an approved maintenance organization can
develop procedures to mange undocumented parts.
CAR/STD 573 already requires that the AMO have
appropriate procedures in place to cover the type of
work carried out. This requirement was deemed to be
sufficient to cover what the AMO is required to do.
The intention is to remove the need for the
TCCA to approve the procedures and rely on the
expertise of the AMO. This ability has already
been granted to avionics rated shops through the
exemption, NCR-007-2020. The removal of the
requirement to have an approved procedure for
undocumented parts will also remove the need for
the exemption.
In this regard, the TCCA has issued an internal
process bulletin (IBP/BIP 2020-12) to notify staff
that approvals to undocumented parts procedures
will no longer be processed. This is due to the
fact that the notice of proposed amendment to
change the standard is nearing release, and being a
standard, can be processed in a much shorter time
frame than a regulation.
Current approved processes and the exemption are
still in place, and no change is required. The only
effect will be on AMOs that don't currently have an
approved process and do not have an avionics rating.
They will have to develop the procedure to be ready
when STD 571 is changed.
The Aircraft Electronics Association is participating
in this process and reviewing the proposed guidance
material to ensure it meets the needs of members. As
always, please contact the AEA if you would like to
provide comment on this issue.
