question asks if the appropriate interfaces are identified for the requirements identified by the questions of Section 1, and this is where to document the interface issues identified.  Negative findings should be documented in PTRS and addressed as appropriate as a part of or with an individual risk management action plan specifying future surveillance activities.

(1)Section 2, Controls. The questions in this section are linked to the questions that appear on the corresponding EPI for the element.  Question 1.1 in the Controls Section will be asking if controls exists for the performance measure asked about in Section 1 of the EPI, question 1.1.  For each performance question on the EPI there will be an associated question in this section of the SAI.  Negative findings should be documented in PTRS and addressed as appropriate as a part of or with an individual risk management action plan specifying future surveillance activities.

(2)Section 3, Process Measurements. The questions in this section are linked to the questions that appear on the corresponding EPI for the element.  Question 1.1 in the process measurement section will be asking if process measurements exists for the performance measure asked about in Section 1 of the EPI, question 1.1.  For each performance question on the EPI there will be an associated question in this section of the SAI.  Negative findings should be documented in PTRS and addressed as appropriate as a part of or with an individual risk management action plan specifying future surveillance activities.

(3)Section 4, Interfaces. There are two questions in this section.  The first question asks if the appropriate interfaces exist for the requirements identified by the questions in the procedures section of the SAI.  And the second question asks does the certificate holder’s manual document a method for assessing the impact of any changes to the associated interfaces within the process.  This section is generic to all 1.x SAI’s.

(4)Section 5, Management Responsibility and Authority. There are nine questions in this section that ask if the responsibility and authority attributes are defined and assigned.  The questions in this section should be answered if the EPI is being accomplished in support of an initial certification activity.  For existing air carriers, principals should utilize the section if there are personnel changes and/or should significant changes to the air carrier’s operation.

(5)SAI Drop Down Menus.  Each section of the SAI has a unique drop down menu that allows for the commenter to categorize their negative findings.  The primary purpose for this is to provide a high level sort of the collected information when inspectors report their findings in the ATOS repository.  Non-ATOS CMT members may benefit from reviewing the drop down menus prior to answering the questions of the associated sections and if there are negative findings, the comment included in the PTRS report for the observation should indicate which selection was applicable.  For the most part the selections on each menu are straight forward and do not require explanation.  However, the drop down menu for Section 3, Controls Attribute, has a selection that might be misleading.  Selection 5 states, “Controls could be unenforceable.”  In this instance, unenforceable means that management does not ensure controls are followed, not that the failure to comply would necessitate an enforcement action.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE 1.X EPIS.  EPIs are the ATOS inspections that determine if an air carrier follows its written procedures and controls, and meets the established performance measures for each system element.  EPIs are planned for and executed at the element level and done by individual inspectors.  EPIs support the validation function of program approval/acceptance and the demonstration phase of an initial certification.  The tool has two sections, Performance Observables and Management Responsibility and Authority Observables.

A.

Section 1, Performance Observables.  This section of the tool looks at the output of the carrier’s program to determine the effectiveness of the program in producing the desired output.  There are two types of questions in this section, element specific and the standard questions numbered 2-6.  The element specific questions are the performance measures that were established for the element and in most cases are derived from a regulatory requirement.  For those elements that have guidance in volume 3 of the airworthiness inspector’s handbook, the performance measures questions should address the performance requirements of the associated handbook chapter.  Since you are testing the effectiveness of a program, plan your activities so that you may observe the most critical and most likely to fail areas first.  If the SAI was accomplished, review any no responses to the controls and process measurements section questions,
