Document Title: FAA Order 8110.42D, Parts Manufacturer Approval Procedures - Use of Parts Manufacturer Approvals (PMA) for Minor Modifications to Products
Summary: This policy statement addresses the use of the Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA) PMA process to issue an approval for an article that will provide for installation as an alteration without a corresponding type design change (TC amendment or STC). Modifications to products have typically been viewed as major changes in type design, requiring a supplemental type certificate (STC) (refer to Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR 21.113)). The issue facing the FAA and industry addressed in this policy statement resides in the gray area when a modification to a product does not rise to the level of a major change pursuant to 14 CFR 21.93, and the producer of the modification article wishes to sell it in accordance with 14 CFR 21.9.This policy statement recognizes the use of PMA as a suitable method to approve an article, and provide for that article's installation, in cases where the installation would not constitute introduction of a major change in a product's type design and thus does not warrant approval via a STC or TC amendment.
