Chapter 3. Delegate Authorization
TCCA recognizes three categories of delegation as defined in AWM Chapter 505, that for an AEO, a DAO, and to a DAR. The requirements for designated engineer authorization within an AEO and a DAO are similar so they are combined in the following discussion.
Designated Engineer (AEO/DAO) is an individual which may be appointed to act as a Delegate within an AEO or a DAO for their employer and may only provide a statement of compliance, or make a recommendation for a statement of compliance to TCCA, of technical data for the company. In some cases a Delegate may personally evaluate and provide the statement of compliance for technical data. In other cases a Delegate may ensure, through the DAO, the proper evaluation of technical data by other persons; then the Delegate will approve that data by certifying that the data complies with the applicable regulations. If a Delegate is assigned to work in a consortium, business arrangement, partnership, licensing agreement, etc., the company should advise TCCA of this in writing to discuss how this could be handled within the existing delegation. If the expansion of the DAO involves the geographic area of responsibility of two different TCCA Regions, the two Regions will determine which RMAC will manage the expanded delegation.
DAR is an individual which may be appointed to act as an independent (self-employed) DAR to provide a statement of compliance, or make a recommendation for a statement of compliance of technical data to TCCA for a client.
