Federal court tosses NLRB election rules
Aeronautical Repair Station Association    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The National Labor Relations Board did not have the legal authority to issue its rule that would speed the process of unionization elections according to a ruling from the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. The court's opinion did not weigh the merits of the rule itself, but rather looked to the process by which the NLRB adopted the rule and concluded that its behavior was impermissible for its failure to satisfy the Board's quorum requirement.

The ATA e-Business Program is pleased to announce the latest revision of Spec 42, Aviation Industry Standards for Digital Information Security (Revision 2012.1). Spec 42 provides a comprehensive guideline for protection of digital information based on established standards such as Public Key Infrastructure and Digital Signature. A key component of Spec 42 is the ATA DSWG Reference Certificate Policy, which provides a standard baseline for the issuance and maintenance of Digital Certificates in the Civil Aviation industry.

Revision 2012.1 of Spec 42 includes new guidance on the use of Digital Signatures, as well as introducing a new Time-Stamp Authority Policy. Time-Stamps provide an additional crucial level of security by helping to ensure the validity of a Digital Signature at a given point in time. The Spec 42 Time-Stamp Authority Policy provides necessary standardization for the issuance of Time-Stamps.

Purchase a copy of Spec 42.

Positive Publicity

You Need the PPC and the PPC Needs You!
Aeronautical Repair Station Association    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
ARSA's Positive Publicity Campaign is the aviation maintenance industry's chief advocate. The PPC tells of the maintenance industry's important role in ensuring a safe and efficient global civil aviation system, and it alerts lawmakers and other key audiences to facts about the industry's economic and employment benefits through important research projects.

However, repair stations remain a favorite target of those seeking to disparage the aviation system. Through the PPC, ARSA actively counters misinformed stories about the industry's safety record and regulatory compliance.

The PPC is a separate ARSA fund supported by leading aviation maintenance companies dedicated to improving the climate for repair stations. For the campaign to build upon is success, we need your involvement and support.
