Although there are a significant number of revision bars for GB Items 23.3, 23.8, 23.9, 23.10, and 23.11, most of the changes have resulted from moving that item from another page. Revision bars are based on changes to the GB at Rev. 05, dated 05 May 00 and the content of each item is identical to the relief provided in GB at Rev. 06, dated 15 Feb. 02.

Specifically, the addition of these enhanced security requirements has been designated as Transport Canada Global Change 5 (TCGC-5).

SUBJECT: ENHANCED SECURITY REQUIREMENTS

Discussion:

As a result of the September 11 hijackings, enhanced security initiatives have been instituted by the FAA, and Transport Canada has agreed to parallel these initiatives as much as possible. These initiatives include the requirement to ensure that installed flight deck doors are locked and additional equipment such as flight deck to cabin communication equipment are operative for dispatch.  This TCCA GC is compatible with the requirements of FAA PLs 9, 24 and 83, revising the 8 items listed above and detailed in the following pages.
