Delayed SDR Rule Withdrawn

 - September 25, 2006, 8:14 AM

As expected, the FAA withdrew a delayed final rule that amended the service difficulty reporting (SDR) requirements for air carriers and repair stations. The industry has raised several unresolved issues since the rules were adopted more than five years ago. The amendments would have been effective January 30. Although it withdrew the rule, the agency did adopt several other changes designed to improve the SDR program.
