Is it not possible to consider the number of Compliance Demonstration Items (CDIs) as a criterion before starting with Level Of Involvement . For instance projects with less than twenty CDIs. Should the CDI list be defined and sent to EASA?
No, the EASA LOI decision has to be based on a risk-assessment and the number of CDIs does not have a direct influence on the risk. Additionally, the number of CDIs could be very small (e.g. containing a single document) or very large (e.g. containing the whole project) depending on the approach selected by the applicant.
