  1. special limitations;
  2. markings or placards;
  3. revision to the performance section including fuel consumption rates;

  5. required aeroplane configuration;
  6. a statement to the effect that "the aeroplane has been found to meet the type design reliability and performance criteria for ETOPS operations in accordance with TP6327. Compliance with these type design criteria alone does not constitute approval to conduct ETOPS operations"; and
