This exemption applies to ACS only for the installation of a door in a partition between passenger compartments on any CL-600-2B19 (Challenger 850) aeroplane (Type-Certificate No. A-131) with a maximum of 19 passengers for the purpose of private operator passenger transportation pursuant to CAR 604 or on-demand air transport service pursuant to CAR 704.
This exemption is subject to the following conditions:

- The door between passenger compartments and, if applicable, any other door between a passenger compartment and emergency exits shall have a means to signal to the flight crew in a timely manner when the cabin door(s) is (are) not latched open. This feature shall be integrated with the existing Engine Indicating and Crew Alerting System (EICAS);
- Appropriate procedures/limitations shall be established to ensure that take-off and landing is prohibited when any such door is not in the proper take-off and landing configuration;
- The door between passenger compartments and, if applicable, any other door between a passenger compartment and emergency exits shall be operable from either side and if a locking mechanism is installed, it shall be capable of being unlocked from either side without the aid of special tools;
- Where the door is to be installed in specified egress paths, a Supplement to the Aeroplane Flight Manual (AFM) shall be developed containing:
- instruction on the door operation, including its frangibility feature;
- a limitation specifying that the aeroplane is limited to private operator passenger transportation pursuant to CAR 604 or on-demand air transport service pursuant to CAR 704 and shall comply with the applicable operational regulations, standards, policies and authorities; and

The briefing shall include the information from the AFM Supplement required at 9.a above.
This exemption is in effect until the earliest of the following:
