Change To One-Year Requirement Hailed By Many
burdensome piece of regulation has received a welcome facelift...
as this week, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) announced
it will amend the guidelines for the Inspection Authorization (IA)
The current IA regulation has a one-year renewal period. The
rulemaking change alters that to once every two years --
which will save both the agency and repair shops money. The change
to § 65.92(a) goes into effect immediately, and changes the IA
expiration date from March 31 of each year, to March 31 of each
The FAA states the change will cut administrative costs of the
renewal process in half; mechanics, in turn, won't have to fork
over money to be recertified every year.
The agency stresses aviation safety will not be affected, as the
new regulation will not change the requirements of the prior rule
for annual activity -- work performed, training, or oral
This rulemaking was in response to concerns about reducing the
administrative burden associated with the renewal of inspection
authorizations, and is effective immediately.
Representatives with the Aircraft Electronics Association (AEA)
said the group is "fully supportive" of this final rule.
"The 1-year Inspection Authorization renewal was a legacy marker
from the "old" way of doing business that offered little benefit to
the FAA or to industry to offset the high administrative cost that
it incurred," the AEA states.
Comments on the new regulation are due on or before March 1,
2007, and should be identified by the docket number
