Repair Shop Quality Rules To Be Proposed

 - September 26, 2006, 1:08 PM

Repair stations would be required to establish a quality-rating program under a notice of proposed rulemaking the FAA expects to publish next month. The new rules would revise the current ratings system and require shops to “establish a quality program.” Repair stations would be required to maintain a capability list, designate a chief inspector and have permanent housing for facilities, equipment, materials and personnel. The rulemaking would also “identify reasons for denying a repair station certificate, especially when a previously held certificate has been revoked.”
