Application guidance for maintenance organisations
Regulation (EC) No. 2042/2003 determines the rules for the continuing airworthiness and maintenance of aircraft subject to EASA regulation. Part M Subpart G of this regulation concerns the management of continuing airworthiness of EASA aircraft.
Organisations approved to Part M Subpart G can additionally be approved to make recommendations to a competent authority that an Airworthiness Review Certificate (EASA Form 15a) may be issued or in certain cases issue and extend an Airworthiness Review Certificate (EASA Form 15b) under the terms of their approval.
Part M Subpart G organisations holding the Airworthiness Review privilege may also be approved to issue Permits to Fly in accordance with Part 21 Subpart P when the aircraft is in conformity with the approved Flight Conditions. Please note: this privilege does not allow the Part M Subpart G organisation to approve the Flight Conditions.
There are two elements of a Part M Subpart G approval:
An organisation, located in the UK that wishes to carry out the management of continuing airworthiness management of EASA aircraft.
Organisations located outside the UK, including the Channel Islands, should apply directly to EASA.
Organisations needing to change a Registered Company or Limited Liability Partnership (LLP) Number will require a new initial approval as it cannot be classed as a change to an existing approval. See CAP 562, Leaflet C-30 for further information.
If adding an aircraft which falls within a generic aircraft group that you already hold on your approval certificate (e.g. Piston engine aeroplanes – metal structure not exceeding 5700 kg) then you should supply an exposition amendment directly to your surveyor. No fee or application form is required.
Changes of address
In cases where an organisation holds more than one approval and requires to make an application for a change of address which will affect each approval held, you can complete this application form which will cater for both BCAR and EASA approvals. (You will need to provide a copy of your amended Expositions).
