The European Union Aviation Safety Agency has published ED Decision 2022/001/R ‘Regular update of AMC-20 — AMC-20 Amendment 23’.
This Amendment provides state-of-the-art means for showing compliance with the applicable airworthiness requirements with regard to:
- Aircraft electrical and electronic system lightning protection (EASA AMC 20-136);
- Aircraft electrical and electronic system high-intensity radiated fields (HIRF) protection (EASA AMC 20-158);
- Use of multi-core processors (MCPs) (EASA AMC 20-193).
This amendment to AMC-20 is expected to facilitate the certification process while maintaining an adequate level of safety. It will also improve harmonisation with the equivalent FAA ACs.
