(2)  Ensuring compliance with the regulatory requirements of 121.373(a) or 135.431(a), as applicable, for the analysis of C.A.S.E. audit results (data) and the determination of the effectiveness of the air carrier’s program including the correction of discrepancies.

(3)  Ensuring that their manual contains the C.A.S.E. minimum requirements contained in the C.A.S.E. Manual, chapter 2-2-0, and that they are not contrary to the air carrier’s manual.

(4)  Justifying a request for a C.A.S.E. deviation or exemption and informing the PI of any deviations or exemptions issued by C.A.S.E. to the air carrier.

(9)  Ensuring the use of the C.A.S.E. 1-A Standard and checklist when performing C.A.S.E. audits.

(10)  Notifying the FAA if a safety of flight finding is discovered during an audit.

(11)  Ensuring its C.A.S.E. auditors/evaluators maintain recurrent C.A.S.E. training.

(15)  Keeping current the copy of the C.A.S.E. Manual if issued to the PMI.

(16)  Identifying that the air carrier has primary responsibility for C.A.S.E. activities performed for it to include surveillance and the airworthiness of parts and material processed through any C.A.S.E. approved vendor or contractor approved for use by the certificate holder and for services rendered to the certificate holder.
