may be accomplished with suitable racks, hoists, trays, stands, and/or other means of segregation for the storage and protection of all articles. At present we do not have definitions in Order 8300.10 for the follow words:
Serviceable and unserviceable
Environmentally hazardous or sensitive operations, such as avionics work, battery maintenance, painting, cleaning, welding, and machining, should be situated in such a manner that they do not adversely affect other maintenance or alteration of articles or activities.
If the facility deals in non-aircraft parts, materials, or maintenance activities, outside the realm of the repair station, they should segregate the aircraft function from other functions to preclude unapproved parts or materials from being used on an aircraft.
Articles and materials stocked for installation must be segregated from those undergoing maintenance, preventive maintenance, or alteration.
D.Environmental Conditions. Ventilation, lighting, and control of temperature, humidity, and other climatic conditions must be sufficient to ensure that personnel perform maintenance, preventive maintenance, or alterations to the required standards. In addition to reasonable heating, air conditioning and lighting requirements, verify the following:
Instrument shop environmental conditions are in accordance with the manufacturer’s standards.
Composite lay-up and clean rooms are environmentally and operationally controlled in accordance with the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) or other FAA-approved repair process.
Storage areas include proper storage conditions for flammables, sealants, chemicals, tires, tooling, etc.
Lighting is adequate for the type of process being performed in each area.
E.Safe working environment. Repair stations are responsible for creating a safe working environment that will prevent personnel injury and damage to customer’s property. The housing and facilities should provide for adequate security and fire protection. The PI should review the repair station’s safety procedures keeping in mind that poor housekeeping or improper maintenance of safety devices, such as eye wash stations and fire extinguishers, are good indicators of the repair station’s corporate culture.
NOTE: This inspection focuses on the repair station following their safety policies and procedures. Safety rules, codes and regulations, which vary from one State or County to another, are outside the PI’s jurisdiction.
Analyze Findings. Upon completion of the inspection, record all deficiencies; determine the appropriate corrective action(s).
Conduct Debriefing. Brief the certificate holder on the inspection results. Discuss any deficiencies and possible corrective actions.
Complete the Task. Competition of this task will result in the following:
Send a letter to the operator documenting all deficiencies
Enforcement Investigation Report (EIR) if necessary
Document Task. File all supporting paperwork in the certificate holder’s office file. Update the Vital Information Subsystem (VIS) as required.
FUTURE ACTIVITIES. Schedule and conduct follow up inspections as applicable.
