3. OBJECTIVE. This chapter provides guidance for ensuring that air carriers have adequate oversight for the performance of maintenance that they outsource.  Air carriers must ensure that outsource maintenance providers are maintaining the aircraft, airframes, engines, propellers, appliances, emergency equipment, and components thereof, in accordance with the documented policies, procedures and instructions in the air carrier's manual and the applicable Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR).

5. GENERAL.

A.

Outsource Requirements.

(1) Throughout the process of evaluating the outsourcing of maintenance, it is important to remember that the air carrier has the responsibility for the performance and quality of the maintenance (§§ 121.363 and 135.413).  The air carrier cannot delegate this responsibility.  The maintenance provider's organization becomes, in effect, an extension of the air carrier's maintenance organization. The air carrier must have the responsibility and the authority to decide what to do, when to do it, and how to do it.  

(2) Title 14 CFR Part 121 §121.367(a) and Part 135 §135.425(a) require that all maintenance, preventive maintenance, or alterations performed by other persons be performed in accordance with the air carrier’s manual. Air carrier’s detail in their manuals the policies, procedures, instructions and methods for all maintenance personnel to follow to ensure the airworthiness of its aircraft, airframe, engines, propellers, appliances, emergency equipment and parts thereof.  Since the regulations only require a maintenance provider to comply with the portions of the carriers manual that pertain to the performance of maintenance, it is not expected for every outsource provider to comply with every aspect of a carriers CAMP, therefore the carrier must detail in its manual exactly how the maintenance providers will perform maintenance.  

(3) The performance of maintenance language includes all facets of performing maintenance on air carriers aircraft or components thereof and includes, but not necessarily limited to, the following areas of the air carrier CAMP:

Maintenance personnel training (included inspection personnel and RII authorized personnel)

Instructions for the accomplishment of maintenance and inspection (including the use of maintenance manuals, work cards, engineering orders, etc.)

Duty time

Maintenance documentation and that documentations
