ED Decision 2022/011/R

Amendment of the AMC & GM to Commission Regulation (EU) No 1321/2014 | SMS in Part-145 and Occurrence reporting

'Amendment of the AMC & GM to Commission Regulation (EU) No 1321/2014' | ‘SMS in Part-145’ and ‘Occurrence reporting’

The objective of this Decision is to support the transposition of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) Annex 19 Standards and Recommended Practices (SARPs) in the maintenance domain, and facilitate the implementation of safety management system (SMS) requirements introduced by Regulation (EU) 2021/1963 in Part-145 (Annex II to Regulation (EU) No 1321/2014). 

This Decision amends primarily the Acceptable Means of Compliance (AMC) & Guidance Material (GM) to Part-145 in respect of the following topics:

  • Introduction of a management system for Part-145 maintenance organisations; 
  • Introduction of a management system for competent authorities;
  • Harmonisation of general organisation provisions and competent authority procedures with those of Part-CAMO (Annex Vc to Regulation (EU) No 1321/2014); 
  • Occurrence reporting (RMT.0681).

The Decision also amends the AMC & GM to Part-M, Part-66, Part-CAMO, Part-CAO and to the Articles of Regulation (EU) No 1321/2014, such that these remain consistent with the amended Part-145 regulatory material. Besides, an AMC to Part-CAMO is amended to address an implementation issue in relation to the qualification of the safety manager.
