This appendix contains special requirements stipulated by a number of aviation authorities as applicable to aeronautical products imported into their countries or jurisdictions from the United States. These requirements should apply whether an aircraft is imported from the United States or any other State of Registry.

If information contained in these documents conflicts with an existing bilateral agreement or associated implementation procedures, the language within the bilateral agreement shall prevail, followed by the language in the implementation procedure, and then the Appendix 2 Special Requirements of Importing Countries document.
