We anticipate that a CRI may be needed for each STC because of the need to at least have the applicants use the checklist. Has EASA considered the effect on the hours to be allocated for each task to include the extra work? In addition may this not also affect the classification of an STC from Simple to Standard because of the need to include an electrical specialist each time?
The effect of extra work and additional hours needs to be accounted for.
Simple STCs may be subject to change from “simple” to “standard” due to an EWIS impact. Nevertheless, not all STCs affected by EWIS become automatically standard.
Classification between simple/standard will be managed according to the processes in place and the possible need to involve more than one Panel for this specific task.
