What happens to CAP 737 CRM?

CAP 737 will be amended and become a reference only document for gaining knowledge associated with all matters CRM and will not be used for Acceptable Means of Compliance or Guidance Material. However, Standards Document 29, version 4, will be amended and offered to EASA as Acceptable Means of Compliance for both Part FCL and Part-ORO (Organisation Requirements for Air Operations). If these are accepted the document will no longer be needed as the material will be within Acceptable Means of Compliance. the information contained within Doc 29 V5 offers both the methodology and requirements for establishing suitably qualified personnel for training CRM. Doc 29 V5 remains effective until 28 October 14. Subsequent to the introduction of Part ORO a revised Doc 29 will be presented reflecting any changes. (last updated September 2013)
