(2) In any case, the C.A.S.E. audit alone does not satisfy regulatory requirements. Data collected by the C.A.S.E. audit must be analyzed to determine that the air carrier’s programs are working effectively and that any deficiencies are corrected. The C.A.S.E. program must be integral to the air carrier’s continuing analysis and surveillance system.
G. Airworthiness Release or Aircraft Log Entry Required by §§ 121.709 and 135.443. For the purposes of outsourcing maintenance, it is important to note that §§ 121.709(b)(3) and 135.443(b)(3) outline personnel requirements for preparing a airworthiness release or aircraft log entry. These regulations require a repairman, or appropriately certificated mechanic that is authorized by the air carrier to make these entries. These regulations do not contain provisions for a certificated repair station (inside the United States) to make the certification to meet the requirements of §§ 121.709 and 135.443. This is particularly important for the air carriers to take into consideration when allowing outsource providers, especially repair stations approved under § 145.205(d) to perform line maintenance.
