(2)  The maintenance provider must provide documentation that reflects the air operator’s evaluation of its own programs and/or standard operating procedures (SOP) that the carrier has reviewed and accepted or rejected.  If the carrier rejected the maintenance provider’s program or SOPs, then the provider must follow the carrier’s CAMP or another method accepted by the carrier.  This process can be totally within the carrier’s CAMP or be in the contract or a letter of agreement.  In any event, the maintenance provider must have documentation that reflects this evaluation process.  This process is how a maintenance provider becomes an extension of the air operator’s own maintenance program.

(3)  By sampling the records, ensure that the work is accomplished and documented in accordance with the air operator’s manual.

(4)  If applicable:  ensure the required inspections items (RII) are accomplished in accordance with the operator’s RII procedures.

(5) Ensure the airworthiness release is being signed in accordance with the air operator’s manuals.

D.  Personnel Training Records.  Review the maintenance provider’s records to ensure that personnel are trained to perform the work for which they have been contracted.  Inspect the Quality System (QC and QA).  Ensure that the facility personnel have been trained to the operators program and procedures.  Ensure the following:

NOTE:  The asterisk (*) items come under the purview of the part 145-repair station principal inspector (PI).  It is most important that the inspecting ASI coordinate all findings with the repair station PI.

(1)*Responsibilities for maintenance and (required) inspection functions are separated.

(2)*Staffing reflects the complexity of the operation.

(3)Personnel are appropriately certificated, qualified, and trained to perform inspections.

(4)Personnel performing RII functions are properly trained and authorized by the operator.

(5) Lists of authorized inspectors and RII personnel are maintained, including the type of equipment and limitations authorized.

(6) All inspection personnel’s training records are maintained and kept current.

(7) The operator’s system for controlling accountability and documentation of all work being accomplished is specified in the air operator’s maintenance manual.

(8) The operator complies with the suspected unapproved part program.

(9) Incoming parts and supplies are inspected and tagged in accordance with the air operator’s maintenance manual.

(10) Receiving inspection personnel are properly trained and authorized by the operator in accordance with the air operator’s manual.

(11)  *Ask to see the part warranty, or return listing; areas that have a high rate of return should be reviewed for shortfalls.

E.  Inspect the Maintenance Department.  Ensure the following (this applies to all types of facilities):

(1) Personnel are trained for the complexity of the work performed in accordance with the air operator’s manual procedure.

(2)  *The facilities are adequate for the type of work performed.  Space, lighting, and ventilation reflect the requirements of the work being performed. (This does not apply to certificated repair station with line station rating only.)

(3) *Equipment is available to support the work being performed.  Special tools and test equipment are calibrated within specified time intervals.

(4)  Shift turnover procedures are in place and being used.

(5) *Flammable and hazardous materials are properly segregated and stored.

(6) *Serviceable and unserviceable parts are identified and segregated.
