Recommendation: Maintenance organisations, aircraft owners, operators, independent certifying staff, manufacturers, and parts suppliers are invited to make a determination of eligibility of this part for installation, before accepting such a part into their organisations or before fitting it to an aircraft.
If this part is found in stock, it is recommended that the part is quarantined to prevent installation until a determination can be made regarding its eligibility for installation.
It is also recommended for maintenance organisations, aircraft owners, and operators to check if unapproved parts are not already installed on in-service aircraft. If so, these parts should be replaced with approved parts. The unapproved parts should be quarantined.
