A.Planning. Prior to inspecting, the principal inspector (PI) should carefully review:
Parts 43 and 145.
OpSpecs to consider: A101, if applicable.
The Safety Performance Analysis System (SPAS) is the organization’s primary source of comprehensive, integrated safety information that is used by inspectors, analysts, and managers in developing and adjusting field surveillance, investigation, and other oversight programs. SPAS interfaces with key fielded oversight programs (such as ATOS, SEP, and the NPG), as well as other government and industry sources, collecting raw performance and operational data, analyzing and summarizing the data, and providing critical information in the form of graphs, tables, and reports. These SPAS outputs are then used to (1) identify safety hazard and risk areas; (2) target inspection efforts for repair stations, and to areas of greatest risk; and (3) monitor the effectiveness of targeted oversight actions. SPAS repair station profile and repair station analytical model (RSAM) are available for use. This data provides additional information on performance and risk associated with individual repair station facilities.
Visual Information System (VIS).
NOTE: Any maintenance performed under part 145, § 145.205, whether by the repair station or any facility listed on the air carrier’s contract maintenance list, is required to be performed in accordance with the air carrier’s approved procedures. This requirement applies to any and all levels of subcontracted maintenance.
B. Air Carrier Requirements. Review a representative sample of maintenance records and or work orders/purchase orders by the repair station to verify the following:
(1) The repair station has been PROVIDED with the necessary information to verify compliance with the air carrier’s approved program and maintenance manual.
NOTE: This can be included on the purchase order or other contractual documents from the air carrier by clearly stating the source of the data
