Description
Service Characteristic Service Standards
Normal Days Maximum Days
1 Issuance of a Type Certificate for aeronautical products that are the responsibility of the Department of Transport, in respect of: Transport Canada Civil Aviation (TCCA) issues Type Certificates for Canadian-designed aeronautical products to certify that the product complies with the appropriate airworthiness standards. Hourly rate with a maximum charge. The majority of these certificates are issued at Headquarters. Some are issued in the Regions. The schedule for the issuance of a Type Certificate is usually requested by the applicant based on economic considerations.
The complexity of type certification projects is not conducive to standards based on timelines.

TCCA makes every effort to respect the applicant’s proposed date by following documented processes that have been developed over time in conjunction with industry clients. In providing service to clients, TCCA is committed to supporting the applicant’s type certification schedule in such a way that the Minister fulfills his obligations under the Aeronautics Act.

To measure the level of service provided to clients, clients will be asked to respond to a questionnaire. The results of the questionnaire will be analyzed to determine the level of client satisfaction and to make improvements to the type-certification procedures.

180 percent of projects fall within these durations.

20 percent of all projects may extend beyond this time, some significantly due to a wide variety of factors generally associated with the administrative and technical complexity of a project, availability of Transport Canada staff and delegates, and the pace at which the client progresses through the certification process.

Each of the durations listed are overall project times, that is, including time waiting for Transport Canada data review, client data and follow-up submission time, and time associated with the factors outlined in the Levels of Service Variables and Priorities.
