Airworthiness Notice - B052, Edition 1 - 15 May 2000
Application of the Civil Aviation Administration of Israel/Transport Canada
Civil Aviation Technical Arrangement
This airworthiness notice (AN) is issued to provide information and guidance on the reciprocal acceptance of approved maintenance organizations (AMOs) under the Technical Arrangement between the Civil Aviation Administration of Israel (CAAI) and Transport Canada Civil Aviation (TCCA).
The arrangement promotes aviation safety, and recognizes that the rules, standards, practices, procedures and systems for the approval and monitoring of maintenance and of maintenance organizations, are sufficiently equivalent to permit the acceptance of each other's maintenance certification system.
Within the general objectives of the arrangement and without prejudice to the obligation of each authority under its own regulations, the purpose of these procedures is to:
- Avoid the duplication of inspections and evaluations;
- Give the same validity to the other authority's inspection and evaluation findings for the approval of maintenance organizations; and
- Give the same validity to the other authority's system for the release to service after maintenance of civil aeronautical products.
Acceptance of Approved Maintenance Organizations
Part I - Approved Maintenance Organizations under the Jurisdiction of TCCA
The acceptance of AMOs for the purpose of this technical arrangement is based upon the following criteria:
- The organization must be approved by TCCA for the type and scope of work undertaken.
- The AMO's Maintenance Policy Manual (MPM), either within the body of the document or in a supplement, must address the following issues:
- The right of access by the CAAI to verify the organization's compliance with the requirements.
- Procedures for compliance with customer work orders, taking particular note of requested airworthiness directives, modifications and repairs.
- Procedures to ensure that any parts installed on Israeli aircraft have been manufactured or maintained, as applicable, by organizations acceptable to the CAAI.
- Procedures to ensure that the customer has established CAAI approval of any modifications and repairs prior to the installation or performance of those modifications or repairs.
- Procedures to ensure that aeronautical products under the jurisdiction of the CAAI found in an unairworthy condition, after the contracted work was performed, are reported to TCCA and CAAI, and to the customer.
- The MPM and/or supplement must be forwarded to the Director, Maintenance and Manufacturing in Ottawa, for review and acceptance on behalf of the CAAI.
- All maintenance performed upon aeronautical products under the jurisdiction of the CAAI must be released in accordance with Canadian Aviation Regulation (CAR) 571.10, and in the case of engines, propellers, appliances and parts, the release shall be made using an Authorized Release Certificate 24-0078.
- In the case of serious non compliance with regulations or established standards, should TCCA be unable to satisfy the CAAI that appropriate Canadian enforcement action has been taken, the AMO may be subject to enforcement action by the CAAI.
- The AMO must agree to cover any expenses associated with visiting CAAI audit teams in accordance with the CAAI cost recovery policies.
Requests for information and application for acceptance by the Civil Aviation Administration of Israel shall be submitted by mail to:

Part II - Maintenance Organizations under the Jurisdiction of the CAAI
The provisions for the TCCA acceptance of CAAI approved maintenance organizations under this technical arrangement are similar to those for Canadian AMOs seeking CAAI acceptance. The CAAI will review and accept the manuals or supplements submitted.
In addition, the CAAI will periodically provide to TCCA the names of approved maintenance organizations located in Israel that have been accepted under the arrangement.
