FAA updates certification rules for aviation products and parts

US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) published (19-Oct-2009) new regulations for manufacturers of aircraft and aviation products that will update and standardise FAA requirements. Major changes to the regulations include:

  • Standardisation of quality control system requirements for all aviation manufacturers.
  • Updated export requirements to facilitate global acceptance and documentation of parts.
  • Standardisation of part marking and identification requirements so they align with other countries’ rules, and consolidation of the requirements into one regulation.
  • Updated and standardized language in the regulations for production approvals, exporting and identification marking. [more]
