According to the MAG CHANGE 6 “it is the applicants responsibility to prepare the renewal package in time to receive the new certificate. Typically, this should occur 90 days prior to the expiration.”
With regard to timing, these actions for renewal are completely disconnected from the applicant’s obligation to comply with EASAs Fees and Charges Regulation. Therefore please do not wait for the EASA invoice and proceed with the renewal process within the timeframe specified in the MAG.
Please submit the completed EASA FORM 16 to your PMI at FAA.
As soon as we will receive the complete continuation package from the FAA including EASA FORM 16, EASA FORM 9, Air Agency Certificate, operation specifications and repair station profile we will confirm receipt to the FAA and to your organisation.
Currently EASA sends out the invoices 60 days after the renewal of the approval. Payment shall be made only after the receipt of the invoice.
