Filler Highlights BASAs at Asia-Pacific Conference
At an Aug. 13 FAA Asia-Pacific Flight Standards Meeting, ARSA Managing Director and General Counsel Marshall S. Filler, as part of a panel on maintenance repair organization oversight, spoke about the value of bilateral aviation safety agreements (BASAs).

Filler's presentation illustrated how BASAs reduce regulatory compliance costs and make government oversight more efficient. He also shared ARSA survey data assessing the economic impact of BASAs on the civil maintenance industry that found it costs repair stations significantly more to become certificated by "foreign" civil aviation authorities when the home country does not have a BASA. Redundant oversight — particularly on small facilities — is costly; these international agreements help make repair stations more profitable. Filler suggested that because virtually all members of the International Civil Aviation Organization exercise state of registry responsibilities it is important to reduce the number of redundant technological determinations in maintenance.
