DER Transition Guide

The transition guide is a tool that will assist existing DERs with their transition to DMS. We understand that DMS is a new tool that the FAA is using to manage its designees and there will be unique challenges involved. This guide will serve as the bridge between the current system and DMS.

Introduction to the updated FAA Form 8110-3

The form 8110-3 has not been substantially changed for decades and an updated form is being released with DMS. The form will be filled out in DMS going forward, with an option to upload a form completed outside of DMS when the system is not available. Refer to this support document for additional information about the updated form and how to use it.

Sample Certificate Letter of Authority (CLOA)

The CLOA replaces the eCOA and is located in DMS as part of each DER's record.
