NOTE: Verify the information that is in the current VIS matches the repair station information.
Limited Rating. If the repair station holds a limited rating, each article they are authorized to maintain and alter will be identified either on a Capabilities List, or on their OpSpecs. Each item on the Capabilities List must have documentation to show that a self-evaluation was done to determine that the necessary housing, facilities, tools, test equipment, materials, technical data, processes, and trained personnel were available to accomplish the work. If the repair station utilizes a Capabilities List, verify that they follow the procedures in their RSM/QSM for conducting self-evaluations and revising the list in accordance with § 145.215(c).
Anti-drug and Alcohol Prevention Program. If the repair station contracts to perform work for a 14 CFR part 135 or part 121 Air Carrier, they must have an Anti-drug and Alcohol Prevention Program authorized by Operations Specification A449. Although the FAA Drug Abatement Division conducts inspections and enforcement activities for these programs, the PI should verify the information on the A449 and ensure that the Anti-drug and Alcohol Misuse Prevention Program records are maintained and available for inspection.
NOTE: OpSpecs A449 are not issued to repair stations located outside the United States.
Line maintenance (repair stations located within the United States). A repair station must be authorized by OpSpec D107 to perform line maintenance for certificate holders conducting operations under 14 CFR parts 121, 135, and for foreign air carriers or foreign persons operating a U.S.-registered aircraft in common carriage under 14 CFR part 129. Verify, at location(s) listed in OpSpec D107, that the repair station has the facilities, equipment, trained personnel, and technical data to perform such line maintenance.
Geographic Authorization (repair stations located outside the United States). If the repair station is
authorized to perform maintenance away from the repair station in accordance with geographic authorizations, these authorizations will also be listed in OpSpec B050. Surveillance Requirement for Geographic Authorization must follow the guidance of Order 8300.10, volume 2, chapter 163, section 4, and paragraph 5C.
Exemptions. If the repair station is authorized to conduct operations in accordance with the provisions, conditions, and / or limitations set forth in an FAA exemption, that exemption would be listed in OpSpec A005. Review each exemption and verify that they comply with its conditions and limitations.
Additional fixed locations. If the repair station is authorized to have additional fixed locations, the locations must be listed in OpSpec A101. Verify the data is correct.
Analyze Findings: Evaluate all deficiencies to determine if corrective actions will be required.
Conduct Debriefing: Brief the certificate holder on the inspection results. Discuss any deficiencies and possible corrective actions.
