With reference to ICAO Annex 19, the objective of this Rulemaking Task is to set up a framework for safety management
in the remaining initial and continuing airworthiness domains.
Phase I of this Rulemaking Task delivered Opinion 06/2016 for SMS in continuing airworthiness management
organisations; proposing a new Annex to Regulation (EU) No 1321/2014 ‘Part-CAMO’. Part-CAMO includes SMS
requirements and related authority oversight and management system requirements and is intended for continuing
airworthiness management organisations (CAMO’s) managing aircraft used by licensed air carriers or of complex motorpowered aircraft.
Phase II of this Rulemaking Task will introduce SMS requirements and related authority oversight and management
system requirements for EASA Part-21 approved design organisations, approved production organisations and EASA
Part-145 approved maintenance organisations. It shall consider the work done in Phase I. This task will also assess the
need to amend Part-21 for production without production organisation approval and for design under alternative
procedures to DOA.
These Terms of Reference only cover Phase II of the Rulemaking Task.
