SAFETY ATTRIBUTE INSPECTIONS (SAI).  SAIs support the verification process for the approval/acceptance of any of the following:

Facility operations

Air carrier operations

Programs

Documents

Procedures or methods

Systems

A.This generic process for approval/acceptance generally consists of five related “phases.” The process can result in approving or not approving, or accepting or not accepting a proposal.  A proposal could be the procedures for outsourcing maintenance included for review during the document compliance phase of a new certification, the submission of a new program by a certificated operator that does not presently have an approved program, or an existing carrier that has submitted a revision of an existing program to the CMO for review.

B.In phase three of the general approval process, and the document compliance phase of a new certification, the FAA evaluation is focused on the form, content, and technical quality of the submitted proposal to ensure that the information:

Is not contrary to any applicable Federal Aviation Regulations

Is not contrary to the direction provided in this handbook or other safety related documents

Provides for safe operating practices by incorporating the six safety attributes

C.In addition to the general approval process and the certification process (see volume 1, chapters 3 and 4), other chapters of this order provide the specifics for the activity/program under review.  Outsource Maintenance, volume 2, chapter 69, provides the technical detail one would look for when evaluating the air carrier’s management and oversight of its maintenance providers.

13.ELEMENT PERFORMANCE INSPECTIONS (EPI).  

A.EPIs support the validation process for the approval/acceptance of any of the following:

Facility operations

Air carrier operations

Programs

Documents

Procedures or methods

Systems

B.Phase four of the general process for the approval/acceptance of a program and the demonstration and inspection phase of a new certification require an operational evaluation of the operator’s ability to function in accordance with the proposal evaluated in phase three or the document compliance phase.  Usually these demonstrations are required by regulation.  Some examples include training programs, emergency evacuation demonstration, external load class operational tests, and Non-Destructive Inspection (NDI) tests.  EPIs provide a structured review, which should identify weaknesses in the air carrier’s programs.
