Pursuant to subsection 5.9(2) of the Aeronautics Act, and after taking into account that the exemption is in the public interest and is not likely to adversely affect aviation safety, I hereby exempt persons holding an Approved Maintenance Organization (AMO) certificate endorsed with an applicable avionics, instrument and component rating from complying with subsection 573.02 (11) of Standard 573 made pursuant to subsection 573.02(2) of the Canadian Aviation Regulations (CARs).
This exemption relieves avionics, instrument and component rating AMOs from the requirements of Standard 573.02 (11).
Standard 573.02(11) states that an AMO with ratings in the aircraft, avionics, engine, propeller, structure, or component categories may evaluate undocumented parts of the kinds listed on the pertinent ratings, provided that:(amended 2002/03/01: previous version)
the AMO establishes applicable procedures, in its MPM, to perform the process outlined in Standard 571, Appendix H;
the AMO obtains approval for the procedures required in paragraph (a) in accordance with section 573.01 of the CARs, and
the performance of such service is authorized in the limitations set out in the AMO certificate.
The exemption applies specifically to AMO certificate holders with an applicable avionics, instrument and component rating, issued pursuant to CAR 573 when recertifying undocumented parts. This exemption does not apply to AMO certificate holders in the airframe, structure, engine and propeller categories.
This exemption is subject to the following conditions:
The person holding an AMO certificate with ratings in the avionics, instrument or component categories shall ensure the parts recertified are within the applicable scope of those ratings;
The person holding an AMO certificate with ratings in the avionics, instrument or component categories shall have available the necessary instructions for continued airworthiness to maintain those products;
The person holding an AMO certificate with ratings in the avionics, instrument or component categories shall comply with all other requirements of the Canadian Aviation Regulations.
This exemption will be in effect until the earliest of the following:
February 12, 2015 at 23:59 EST;
the date on which an amendment to the Canadian Aviation Regulations or related standards, modifying the subject-matter specifically addressed in this exemption, comes into effect;
the date on which any of the conditions set out in this exemption is breached;
the date on which this exemption is cancelled in writing by the Minister where she is of the opinion it is no longer in the public interest, or is likely to adversely affect aviation safety.
Dated at Ottawa, Ontario, Canada this 30th day of August 2013 on behalf of the Minister of Transport.
