Guidance for maintenance organisations on the application process
Organisations may hold an approval from Transport Canada Civil Aviation (TCCA) to maintain aircraft or components for aircraft that are registered on the Canadian Aircraft Register.
A Bilateral Agreement between EU and Transport Canada Civil Aviation (TCCA) was signed on 2 February 2012.
The Bilateral Agreement means that NAA’s in Europe will undertake the oversight of organisations that hold EASA Part 145 approval and TCCA CAR 571 and 573 Approval. This means that the UK CAA will undertake the oversight of those organisations where the main base is in the UK.
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, currently £199. 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 or by a cheque made payable to the Civil Aviation Authority.
The application will be processed by Applications & Approvals (A&A) and forwarded to the CAA Regional Office for review within 10 working days.
Once granted, a TCCA Approval is valid for 24 months unless suspended, cancelled or revoked.
Note: Applicants can apply for a joint TCCA and FAA Approval.
