(2) Life-limited parts have up-to-date component times listed on the historical records or appropriate tags, as required.  In addition, all items received with shelf-life limits and/or specific storage requirements must be clearly marked, monitored, and disposed of in accordance with RSM/QCM procedures.

(3) Parts room articles and those items in process, are identified to show:

(a)Basic part information (name/make/ model/serial number/batch or lot, etc).

(b)Serviceability status of parts and materials in a manner that readily identifies serviceable parts and materials from unserviceable.

(c)That a part has been rejected, to include questionable parts awaiting disposition.

(4) Parts/materials receiving procedures provide for traceability to an approved source.  The repair station should retain traceability records for all incoming articles.

NOTE:  It is common to receive certain raw materials/standard parts in lots, which must be broken down into smaller quantities (hardware, sheet stock, welding rod, coating powders, etc.).  In these cases, traceability back to the original lots must be maintained.  The repair station must have systems in place to ensure only approved and traceable parts and materials are issued for maintenance performed.

(5) Verify all parts are appropriately identified and segregated.

(6) Parts and materials are protected in storage and during transit, until installation, in a manner that will prevent damage, contamination, loss, or substitution.  Sensitive part and equipment, such as oxygen parts, O-rings or electrostatic sensitive devices, must be properly stored, packaged, identified, and protected from contamination and damage.  Hazardous, flammable, or volatile materials and aircraft parts, such as fire extinguisher squibs, must be stored in flameproof cabinets or facilities.

NOTE:  If not already in place, the PI, through collaboration with the repair station, should work to produce parts receiving and shipping training to aid personnel in the recognition and disposition of Department of Transportation-recognized hazardous materials.

(7) Receiving personnel comply with RSM/QCM procedures to determine that incoming raw materials are of an acceptable quality.  The repair station should conduct and document the training of receiving personnel in parts receiving/shipping, parts control and detecting and reporting suspected unapproved parts.

(8) The repair station maintains a record of inspections and tests used to verify airworthiness of received components.

NOTE.  Inspectors should be alert to the activities of repair stations that dispose of scrap parts and materials and should review the RSM/QCM procedures to verify that scrap parts and materials are disposed of in a manner that does not allow their approval for return to service.  Disposition of scrap parts and materials is addressed in greater detail in FAA Order 8120.11.

C.Suspected Unapproved Parts (SUP).  Review with repair station personnel, the procedures used to detect and report SUPs.  These procedures should identify those persons responsible for the administration of the SUPs program, provide complete instructions on the completion and submission of FAA Form 8120-11, describe control of articles pending SUPs determination and outline training requirements of receiving personnel.

D.Analyze Findings.  Upon completion of the inspection, record all deficiencies; determine the appropriate corrective action(s).

E.Conduct Debriefing.  Brief the certificate holder on the inspection results.  Discuss any deficiencies and possible corrective actions.


A.Complete PTRS.
