CHAPTER 88. INSPECT A REPAIR STATION’S QUALITY CONTROL SYSTEM
SECTION 1. BACKGROUND
PROGRAM TRACKING AND REPORTING SUBSYSTEM (PTRS) ACTIVITY CODES.
Maintenance: 3608 (Revised)
Avionics: 5608 (Revised)
OBJECTIVE. This chapter provides guidance for inspecting the quality control system of a repair station to ensure compliance with the procedures in the Repair Station Manual/Quality Control Manual (RSM/QCM).
The quality control system must be acceptable to the FAA that it ensures the airworthiness of the articles on which the repair station or any of its contractors perform maintenance, preventive maintenance, or alterations.
The repair station must maintain an inspection system and describe the procedures in detail in
its manual system. Items such as establishing the purchase of aviation articles, how that material is inspected upon receipt, receiving customer’s articles, progressing through each inspection step, and ending in final inspection and approval for return to service. This system will include the controlling and documenting of the maintenance from the incoming inspection to final inspection (work order system). The quality control system also includes a description of the qualifying and surveilling requirements of a non-certificated person.
NOTE: The phrase “non-certificated person” means a person or facility outside the repair station, and does not include a non-certificated individual working for the repair station.
