1. Table of contents - 726.08(1)(a)

 

"...the maintenance control manual (MCM) of an air operator shall contain at least the following information:

(a) a table of contents..."

A table of contents (TOC) is used in the Manual to enhance data access and information retrieval by allowing a quick scan of the entire Manual when looking for a key item. A good TOC will get the reader to the first page of the topic in question. The TOC should be created after the Manual has been completed. The TOC contains a list of the Manual topics identified by number and Manual page number.

The order of the topics in the manual shown in the example below is not consistent with the order of sections within the Standard, but may be more practical for some operators.
