Planning. Prior to inspecting, the principal inspector (PI) or aviation safety inspector (ASI) should carefully review:
(1)14 CFR parts 43 and 145.
(2)Repair Station Manual/Quality Control Manual (RSM/QCM).
(3)Operations Specifications (OpSpecs).
(4)Capability List as required.
(5)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.
(6)Vital Information Sub-System (VIS).
(7)CHDO office file.
Air Agency Certificate. Review the repair station’s Air Agency Certificate and OpSpecs to verify that they are:
(1)Available for inspection.
(2)Identical to those on file in the CHDO and properly signed.
(3)Appropriate for the maintenance and alterations that are performed at the facility.
NOTE: A certificate or rating issued to a repair station located outside the United States is effective from the date of issue until the last day of the 12th month after the date of issue unless the repair station surrenders the certificate or the FAA suspends or revokes it. The FAA may renew the certificate or rating for 24 months if the repair station has operated in compliance with the applicable requirements of 14 CFR part 145 within the preceding certificate duration period.
