Organisations may hold an approval from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to maintain aircraft or components
for aircraft that are registered in the United States of America. A Bilateral Agreement between the EU and the USA was
signed on 1 May 2011.
The Bilateral Agreement means that the National Aviation Authorities (NAA’s) in Europe will undertake the oversight
of organisations that hold EASA Part 145 approval and FAR 145 Repair Station Certification.
This means that the UK CAA will undertake the oversight of those organisations where the main base is in the UK. FAR
145 Repair Station Certificates are valid for 24 months and must be renewed prior to the expiry date.
The CAA must provide the FAA with a recommendation for renewal not less than 30 days before the expiry date of the
current FAR 145 Repair Station Certificate. This cannot be achieved unless renewal applications are submitted at the
Receipt of your renewal application will be acknowledged within 10 working days.
Unless expired, revoked, suspended or cancelled far repair station certificates are valid for 12 months following
initial approval and then valid for 24 months after the first renewal.
