Document Information

Aircraft Certification Service Voluntary Disclosure Reporting Program
Date issued
Office of Primary Responsibility
AIR-150, Aircraft Engineering DIvision
This advisory circular (AC) provides information and guidance to Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Aircraft Certification Service (AIR) Production Approval Holders (PAHs), Design Approval Holders (DAHs), and Organization Designation Authorization Holders (ODA Holders) who choose to voluntarily disclose apparent noncompliance with Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR). The procedures and practices outlined in this AC generally apply when PAHs, DAHs or ODA Holders voluntarily disclose noncompliance with regulatory requirements. These procedures and practices do not apply, however, to those persons who: (1) violate 14 CFR 21.2, Falsification of Applications, Reports, or Records; (2) are required to report failures, malfunctions, and defects pursuant to 14 CFR 21.3, but fail to make those reports in the timeframe required by the regulations; or (3) fail to report unsafe conditions pursuant to 14 CFR 183.63, Continuing Requirements: Products, Parts or Appliances. This AC is not mandatory and does not constitute a regulation. This AC describes an acceptable means to voluntarily disclose an apparent noncompliance. If you use the AC to voluntarily disclose noncompliance, the processes and requirements in this AC must be followed.
