ED Decision 2020/015/R

Regular update of the Certification Specifications and Guidance Material for Cabin Crew Data

CS-CCD Issue 2 

This Decision updates the operational suitability data (OSD) requirements for cabin crew that are included in the Certification Specifications and Guidance Material for Cabin Crew Data (CS-CCD). The objective of this Decision is to reflect, within the scope of regular updates, the state of the art, best practices and experience gained since its implementation (CS-CCD Initial Issue was published on 31 January 2014). 

In particular, this Decision amends CS-CCD to: 

  • clarify the meaning of ‘design-related elements impacting normal and/or emergency operations’ for the process of determining the differences of a new aircraft type or variant against the base aircraft for cabin crew (CS CD.205 Determination elements); 
  • clarify the criteria that are used to determine a candidate aircraft as a new aircraft type or variant for cabin crew; 
  • clarify those elements of the type-specific data content that are required from the applicant for the purpose of OSD certification for cabin crew; and 
  • update the Aircraft difference table of Appendix 1 to CS CCD.200(b)(1), as regards the item ‘design-related elements impacting normal and/or emergency operations’. 

The amendments are expected to maintain safety and reduce regulatory burden.
