After completing the RSAT, the PI may modify the baseline surveillance program to reflect the risks.  In such case, the PI may modify the upcoming fiscal year surveillance plan by assigning additional “P” items as necessary.   It should be noted that each repair station must complete at least one “R” item for each element annually.

1.1.5. Overall Assessment of Repair Station

After completing the element assessments in the RSAT, the PI provides an overall assessment of the repair station.  This overall assessment will allow for prioritization among repair stations.

1.1.6. Risk Management Process

After completing the RSAT, the PI may utilize Risk Management Process for issues of high concern.  This process is designed to provide certificate management personnel an effective means to oversee the certificate holder’s management of identified hazards.  The PI may use the Risk Management Process to address any hazard that he/she decides is significant enough to justify intensive analysis and tracking.  Systemic hazards are often good candidates for this process.  The PI determines when it is appropriate to use the Risk Management Process to address an identified hazard.  The Risk Management Process Work Instructions document provides further detail.

1.2.  When to Use the Repair Station Assessment Tool

The RSAT shall be used at the beginning of the fiscal year to develop the initial work program.  An RSAT shall be completed for each repair station every 12 months.  In addition, the RSAT may be used at any other time to determine if any modifications to the work program are necessary.


This section provides step-by-step details on how to complete the RSAT.  The following work instructions are designed to guide the completion of the blocks of the RSAT by PIs or a designated person.

STEP 1 – Repair Station Data Package

Utilizing SPAS, obtain a Repair Station Data Package for the repair station in question.  Note that since the Repair Station Data Package will not be available till Phase 2; use the SPAS Repair Station Profile in the meantime.

STEP 2 – Identify Trends or Concerns

Perform a comprehensive review of the above data package to determine the status of previous risks and to identify new potential issues of concern.  Identify trends and concerns, taking into consideration your knowledge of the repair station and system design, which includes operating environment, configuration and design of the repair station.  It should be noted that the PI may also contact the certificate holder to obtain any additional pertinent information.

STEP 3 – Complete the RSAT

Complete a new RSAT taking into consideration Step 2.  Refer to the RSAT on the next page.  Notice the lettering below corresponds with lettering in the RSAT.


This tool is comprised of 14 elements that constitute a complete facility inspection.  This column lists the PTRS activity code for each of these 14 elements.


Short description of each of the 14 elements.


Number of element inspections required for the FY.  One “R” item inspection is required for each repair station as determined by Repair Station Baseline Program.
