How should I, as a DOA holder, setup the interface with a Maintenance organisation for the first installation of a design change?
Why should I, as a DOA holder - having been granted the privilege to approve compliance documents, submit any compliance document to the Agency?
In accordance with 21.A.257(b) the DOA holder shall allow the Agency to review any compliance document and make any inspection (also in terms of tests witnessing) to check the validity of the final declaration of compliance submitted by the DOA holder at the end of a certification process.
Nevertheless, the Agency is involved at an early stage in the certification process, and can use the Certification Programme for establishing its “level of involvement”. The Agency can agree with the DOA holder that certain compliance documents are accepted, without further verification, under the DOA privilege.

Do I, as a DOA holder, need to obtain confirmation from the maintenance organisation that my design change has been incorporated on a specific product?
No. After the design change is approved, there is no requirement on a design organisation to keep managing the configuration control of the product(s) on which its design changes are installed. Thus, it is not mandatory to collect confirmation records from the organisations performing the installation of the design changes.
