FAQ n.19492

Could an aircraft records check replace a visual inspection to identify a Part Number and/or serial number?

Answer

Identification of a part by checking the aircraft records is only allowed if this is explicitly indicated in the AD requirements.
For example: A review of aircraft delivery or maintenance records is acceptable in lieu of the inspection as required by this paragraph, provided those records can be relied upon for that purpose, and the Part Number and serial number can be conclusively identified from that review.
