ARSA Praises European Legislators' Efforts on ICAs
On April 19, ARSA sent a letter to two members of the European Parliament commending their recent inquiries to the European Commission regarding original equipment manufacturers making maintenance manuals available to MROs. In the letter, ARSA's Vice President for Legislative Affairs Daniel Fisher detailed the fact that regulatory bodies aren't enforcing their own safety requirements mandating that design approval holders make instructions for continuing airworthiness available, particularly when MROs are required to follow them. Fisher wrote, "ARSA has long been concerned about not only the economic impact of this problem, but also the fact that it can and will adversely affect safety by creating inconsistent maintenance practices."

ARSA Launches Repair Station Security Rule Countdown Clock
On March 15, during testimony before the U.S. House of Representatives Transportation Security Subcommittee, Transportation Security Administration Administrator John Pistole confirmed that the final repair station security rule is being reviewed by the Office of Management and Budget. During the hearing, Pistole said the rule is under a mandatory 90-day examination period.

ARSA hopes the rule is finally completed by June 13, after the review period, so the FAA is permitted once again to certificate new foreign repair stations and industry will stop being penalized for TSA inaction.

In order to countdown the time until the rule is supposed to be finalized, ARSA has launched the "Repair Station Security Rule" Countdown Clock. Once the time expires, if the regulation has not been issued, Congress must affirmatively permit the FAA to begin issuing new foreign repair station certificates.
