2.1  Nomination
2.1.1  Standards for Application

AWM Chapter 505 specifies the standards that are to be met by a candidate when applying for delegation, and the support information that is to be provided with the application. The specific information can be found in:

  1. AWM Subchapter 505C sets out the conditions under which an applicant may obtain a delegation of authority that may be exercised by a DAR, and contains the procedures for obtaining such a delegation;
     
  2. AWM Subchapter 505E prescribes the conditions under which an applicant may obtain a delegation of authority exercised by a DAO, and contains the procedures for obtaining such a delegation; and
     
  3. AWM Subchapter 505B prescribes the conditions under which an applicant may obtain a delegation of authority exercised by an AEO, and contains the procedures for obtaining such a delegation.

To assist an applicant in understanding and applying the criteria specified in the airworthiness manual, ACSI 51, and AMA 505C/1.

2.1.2  Function Specific Requirements

At this time TCCA has developed qualification guidelines for delegation requests in the specialty of software. These guidelines are outlined in ACSI 51 and are to be used in conjunction with ACSI 49.

2.1.3  Licencing Requirements
2.1.3.1  TCCA Requirements

TCCA does not require that a Delegate to meet provincial registration requirements for registered professional engineers or that a Delegate is a registered professional engineer. TCCA in its appointment of a Delegate is not conferring a license to practice engineering or attesting to an individuals qualifications. The Minister is empowered by the Aeronautics Act to authorize persons to conduct examination, testing, and inspections necessary to determine compliance with the Airworthiness standards.

2.1.3.2  Provincial Licensing Laws

Appoint of an individual as a Delegate (either DAR or within a DAO/AEO) does not relieve the Delegate from meeting those requirements imposed by provincial engineering licensing laws. It is within the regulatory power of a provincial engineering association to restrict the right to engage in the practice of engineering within that province to persons who satisfactorily qualify under its laws, e.g., registered professional engineers. Provincial law may require a Delegate to be a registered professional engineer when selling engineering services for a fee. Each delegation applicant should determine whether the province, or provinces in which the Delegate intends to offer engineering services, requires registration as a professional engineer. Appointment as a Delegate does not absolve an individual of ensuring that provincial requirements are met when providing a professional service.
