News & Regulatory Updates
Europe	has	delayed	the	mandate	for	ADS-B	Out	equipage	
of	aircraft	in	its	airspace.	The	new	ADS-B	Out	requirement	
deadline	is	June	8,	2016,	for	new	aircraft	and	June	7,	2020,	
for	retrofit.	The	new	dates	are	more	closely	aligned	with	the	
U.S.	retrofit	requirement.	
Meanwhile,	 the	 EASA	 has	 issued	 a	 Certification	
Specification	CS-ACNS,	in	which	the	minimum	operational	
performance	is	identified.

News & Regulatory Updates
Australia
The	Australian	 government's	 Civil	Aviation	 Safety	Authority	
has	a	number	of	draft	advisory	circulars	that	may	affect	avionics.	
All	comments	should	be	sent	to	the	project	leader,	Ben	Challender.
*	 Draft	AC	21-28	v1.0	-	Approval	of	modification	and	repair	
designs	under	Subpart	21.M.
*	 Draft	AC	21-12	v1.0	-	Classification	of	design	changes.
*	 Draft	AC	21-15	v3.0	-	Supplemental	type	certificates.
*	 Draft	AC	21-26	v1.0	-	Certification	conformity.
In	addition	to	the	draft	documents	that	are	open	for	comment,	
the	CASA	has	published	the	following	documents:
*	 Advisory	 Circular	 -	 AC	 21-36	 v2.1	 -	 Global	 Navigation	
Satellite	Systems	Equipment:	Airworthiness	Guidelines.
*	 CAAP	 35-7(0)	 -	 Design	 approval	 of	 modifications	 and	
repairs	has	been	cancelled/removed	from	the	CASA	website.
Civil	Aviation	Order	82.6	Amendment	Instrument	2014	(No.	
1)	 has	 been	 registered	 on	 the	 Federal	 Register	 of	 Legislative	
Instruments	and	came	into	effect	Sept.	1,	2014.	
Civil	Aviation	Order	82.6	(CAO	82.6)	established	operational	
and	 airworthiness	 standards	 and	 approval	 requirements	 for	 the	
use	of	night	vision	goggles	in	specialized	helicopter	aerial	work	
operations.	The	CAO	had,	and	has,	the	effect	of	making	unlawful	
any	 unapproved	 use	 of	 NVG	 as	 a	 primary	 means	 of	 terrain	
avoidance	 for	 safe	 air	 navigation	 by	 means	 of	 visual	 surface	
reference	external	to	an	aircraft.	The	CAO	is	an	interim	measure	
pending	finalization	of	relevant	parts	of	the	Civil	Aviation	Safety	
Regulations	1998	that	affect	the	use	of	NVG.	However,	three	of	
those	parts	took	effect	Sept.	1,	2014,	namely	Part	61	dealing	with	
flight	 crew	 licensing;	 Part	 141	 dealing	 with	 certain	 pilot	 flight	
training;	and	Part	142	dealing	with	integrated	and	multicrew	pilot	
flight	training	and	contracted	recurrent	training	and	checking.	It	
is,	therefore,	necessary	to	amend	CAO	82.6,	to	take	account	of	
new	language	and	certain	substantive	changes	arising	from	the	
new	parts	that	have	an	impact	on	CAO	82.6	and	the	use	of	NVG.

CAAP	 35-7	 provided	 information	 and	 guidance	 for	 approval	 of	
modifications	and	repairs	under	regulation	35	of	CAR.	Regulation	35	
of	CAR	was	repealed	by	the	Civil	Aviation	and	Civil	Aviation	Safety	
Amendment	Regulations	2011	(No.	1).
Modification/repair	 designs	 are	 now	 approved	 under	 Subpart	
21.M	 of	 CASR.	 See	 AC	 21-8	 -	 Approval	 of	 modification	 and	
repair	designs	under	Subpart	21.M	currently	being	developed	under	
Project	 CS	 99/04	 -	 CASR	 Part	 21	 Subpart	 J	 -	 Approved	 Design	
Organizations,	for	information	and	guidance	on	Subpart	21.M.
CAAP	30-6(0)	-	Certificate	of	Approval	-	Design	Organizations	has	
been	cancelled/removed	from	the	CASA	website.	CAAP	30-6	provided	
guidance	in	relation	to	certificates	of	approval	under	regulation	30	of	
CAR	for	design	organizations.
Following	 the	 commencement	 of	 the	 Civil	 Aviation	 Legislation	
Amendment	(Subpart	21.J)	Regulation	2013,	regulation	30	of	CAR	no	
longer	provides	for	approval	of	design	organizations	(although	noting	
that	the	transitional	regulations	provide	for	certificates	of	approval	under	
regulation	30	of	CAR	to	continue	until	March	2017).	Australian	design	
organizations	are	now	approved	under	Subpart	21.J	of	CASR.
Final	disposition	for	the	Subpart	21.J	amendment	has	been	provided	
to	 the	 industry	 via	 NFRM	 CS	 99/04	 -	 Subpart	 21.J	 legislation	
amendments,	 and	 guidance	 material	 will	 be	 provided	 via	AC	 21.J-01	
-	Approved	 design	 organizations	 (being	 developed	 under	 Project	 CS	
99/04	-	CASR	Part	21	Subpart	J	-	Approved	Design	Organizations.
A	full	list	of	the	CASA	documents	can	be	found	on	the	CASA	website.

Industry Professionalism
In	 the	 August	 issue	 of	 Avionics News,	 Thomas	 Inman	
penned	 an	 excellent	 review	 of	 the	 avionics	 profession	 and	
professionalism	 overall.	 I	 encourage	 all	 to	 read	 it.	 There	 is	
one	 area	 of	 the	 article	 where	 I'd	 like	 to	 expand	 -	 the	 area	 of	
professionalism.	Under	the	heading	"Guidelines	for	behavior,"	
the	author	cites	the	need	for	industry-wide	"code."
As	 the	 AEA's	 vice	 president	 of	 government	 and	 industry	
affairs,	I	have	worked	on	the	Aviator's	Model	Code	of	Conduct	
for	 nearly	 a	 decade	 and	 been	 a	 member	 of	 the	 permanent	
editorial	board	of	the	AMCC	for	the	past	five	years.	In	addition	
to	 the	 basic	 AMCC,	 there	 are	 seven	 additional	 model	 codes	
for	 most	 of	 the	 disciplines	 of	 aviation,	 including	 the	 aviation	
maintenance	 industry.	While	 not	 specific	 to	 only	 avionics,	 the	
AMT	 Model	 Code	 of	 Conduct	 does	 exactly	 what	 the	 author	
was	 looking	 for;	 it	 defines	 the	 guidelines,	 commitment	 and	
statements	 on	 ethics	 and	 professionalism	 in	 support	 of	 the	
aviation	maintenance	(including	avionics)	industry.	
The	 Aviation	 Maintenance	 Technicians	 Model	 Code	 of	
Conduct,	like	all	of	the	AMCCs,	are	a	free	public	service	to	the	
aviation	community.	The	Codes	are	designed	to	be	downloaded	
and	 customized	 for	 your	 particular	 business.	 The	 AMTMCC	
can	be	found	at	the	Aviator's	Model	Code	of	Conduct	website	at
