AMCS Modernization Project Information
For the past several months, the Aerospace Medical Certification Division (AMCD) has been working with our contract developers to modernize the technology (programming language) used for the AMCS application. There are several reasons we must modernize the technology used for AMCS:
- The current AMCS application resides on a Microsoft 2003 server, and Microsoft will no longer support 2003 later this year;
- The programming language in which AMCS is written is not supported on newer versions of the Microsoft Operating System (OS);
- The new programming language used to develop the new version of AMCS is an industry standard.
The AMCS User's Guide and Release Notes for the new version of AMCS are available for your review.

Message about Policy Changes:
November 4, 2014 - Conditions an AME Can Issue (CACI) has been implemented for over a year. Many AME's still are not making the appropriate comments in block #60 per the guidance located on the individual CACI Certificate Worksheets. These comments are MANDATORY and not optional. Error codes will be placed on each airman that does not have the MANDATORY comment in block #60. Please refer to the online AME guide and the CACI Certification Worksheets for the appropriate comments for block #60. If the correct wording is not placed in the comments box of item 60, we have no way of knowing you followed the worksheet correctly. The airman may receive a letter asking for the information again and you as an AME will receive an error on your performance.
