  • PRODUCED IAW REQUIREMENTS or EXCEPTIONS OF FAR Part 21,

  • MAINTAINED IAW FAR Part 43 & 91,

    and

  • MEETS APPLICABLE DESIGN STANDARDS.


An easier way of remembering

IS A PART THAT IS ELIGIBLE FOR INSTALLATION ON A TC’d PRODUCTIF:

IT HAS AN APPROVED DESIGN

IT IS PROPERLY PRODUCED

IT IS PROPERLY MAINTAINED

IT IS PROPERLY DOCUMENTED

An Easier Way of Remembering ...


Approved design means

All pertinent information defined

Drawings and specifications show the configuration of the part.

Airworthiness limitations defined.

APPROVED DESIGN MEANS


Approved design continued

Test procedures and desired results detailed and written.

Actual design approval document, e.g., STC, TC, Letter of Approval.

Some may have “FAA Approved” written or stamped.

APPROVED DESIGN ...Continued


Properly produced means
PROPERLY PRODUCED MEANS...

  • PRODUCED “I/A/W”

How does an installer know they are using approved parts

BY USING ONLY

“APPROVED” PARTS

FROM AN APPROVED SYSTEM!!

OR

HOW DOES AN INSTALLER KNOW THEY ARE USING “APPROVED PARTS”?


Approved parts

DETERMINE THAT PARTS CONFORMTO TYPE DESIGN BY USING TECHNICAL DATA, BLUE PRINTS OR OTHER SPECIFICATIONS.



It may be possible but
IT MAY BE POSSIBLE,... BUT

  • ITS POSSIBLE TO COMPLY WITH FAR 43.13 (b) USING A PART THAT TECHNICALLY DOES NOT MEET THE DEFINITION OF “APPROVED PARTS”,

  • HOWEVER, IT IS THE POSITION OF THE “SUPs TASK FORCE” THAT USING SUCH PARTS SHOULD NOT BE STANDARD PRACTICE

  • BECAUSE INSTALLERS DO NOT NORMALLY DETERMINE A PARTS CONFORMITY TO TYPE DESIGN.


Ok what is an unapproved part

IF A PART IS NOT AN“APPROVED PART”

THEN IT IS AN“UNAPPROVED PART”

OK, WHAT IS AN “UNAPPROVED PART?”


And if you don t know
…AND IF YOU DON’T KNOW,

  • THEN IT IS A

  • SUSPECTED “UNAPPROVED PART”


Approved parts
