120-78A - Electronic Signatures, Electronic Recordkeeping, and Electronic Manuals

Date Issued
June 22, 2016
Responsible Office
AFS-300
Description
This advisory circular (AC), as any AC, is not mandatory and does not constitute a regulation; rather, it provides standards and guidance for electronic signatures, electronic recordkeeping, and electronic manual systems. Electronic recordkeeping systems/programs are used to generate many types of records (e.g., load manifests, dispatch release, aircraft maintenance records, maintenance task cards, pilot training records, flight release, and/or airworthiness release). This AC describes an acceptable means, but not the only means, for a certificate holder to utilize an electronic signature, electronic recordkeeping, and electronic manual systems.
