Application guidance for maintenance organisations
Regulation (EC) No. 2042/2003 details the rules for the continuing airworthiness and maintenance of aircraft subject to EASA regulation. Part M Subpart F of this Regulation concerns the maintenance of EASA aircraft with a MTOM of 5700 kg and below and components that are used for non-commercial air transport.
See the Official Record Series 5, CAA Scheme of Charges
In the event of a discrepancy between the information here and the Official Record Series 5, CAA Scheme of Charges (Airworthiness, Noise Certification and Aircraft and Aircraft Engine Emissions), the Scheme of Charges takes precedence.
If the number of hours taken by the CAA to carry out its investigations in relation to the application exceeds the cost shown above, the applicant must pay an excess hourly charge. The CAA shall determine the excess hourly charge by taking the total number of excess hours taken by the CAA to complete the required investigations in relation to the application and multiplying that number of hours by an hourly charge. The balance for the excess hourly charge (total hourly charge less initial charge already paid) is payable by the applicant to the CAA and will be invoiced to the applicant.
Payments can be made by credit or debit card or by bank transfer. When using bank transfer, please identify what the payment is for by including your approval reference and receiving department.
Same Day Services
Same day, special delivery and other customised services are available at an additional cost. These should be requested when you submit your application.
You will receive an automated email receipt for your online application. Approval certificates will be processed and dispatched within 20 working days following receipt of a recommendation from a CAA Regional Office.
Once granted, an approval requires a recommendation for continuation every 24 months from the date of issue. This is raised by the CAA Surveyor following a satisfactory audit programme.
A company is a separate Legal Entity governed by the Companies Act, which conducts activities on its own behalf and is distinct from the persons who own and control it. The shareholders are the owners and control the company, but their liability in relation to the company's creditors is limited. Incorporation is the process by which the company is entered on the register at the Companies Registry, and thereby comes into existence as a separate legal person. A Certificate of Incorporation will be sent to the company by the Companies Registry on first incorporation and on any change of name.
