International Maintenance Review Board Policy Board (IMRBPB)

The International Maintenance Review Board Policy Board (IMRBPB) is envisioned as a system for the continuing development of policies, procedures and guidance for the use of personnel operating under the purview of various Maintenance Review Boards (MRBs). In addition to promoting harmonisation with other regulatory authorities, the IMRBPB advocates the standardisation of MRB policy and procedures. The IMRBB also provides a structured forum for discussions leading to the development of national and international policy regarding all MRB activities.

The industry is mainly represented in IMRBPB meeting by Airlines for America (A4A) of America and more particularly by the Maintenance Programs Industry Group (MPIG) under the A4A's Airworthiness Committee. This committee is also open to input from European industry.

The A4A Airworthiness Committee (AC) is chartered under the Engineering, Maintenance & Materiel Council (EMMC) , within the areas of airline engineering and maintenance, to assist in the development of consensus industry positions on regulatory and legislative proposals, and to identify new and emerging airworthiness issues and concerns, and proposed industry solutions.

  • AC MISSION - Provide expert assistance concerning advice to regulatory agencies, coordination, and consensus-based industry positions on regulatory and public policy matters pertaining to airline engineering and maintenance, to include the technical aspects of safety, airworthiness, reliability, and cost effectiveness.
  • AC VISION - Maintain processes that, in coordination with regulatory agencies, continuously improve the safety, reliability, and cost effectiveness of airline technical operations while minimizing the need for regulation.
