43-210A - Standardized Procedures for Obtaining Approval of Data Used in the Performance of Major Repairs and Major Alterations - Change 1

Date Issued
August 17, 2016
Responsible Office
AFS-300
Description

This advisory circular (AC) describes a standardized procedure for requesting approval of technical data associated with major repairs/major alterations. This AC also provides information that can help determine if a proposed repair/alteration requires approved data, guidance and standardized procedures for obtaining field approval (or approval by other means) of data, and instructions for completing the field approval checklist. This AC is not mandatory and does not constitute a regulation. This AC describes an acceptable means, but not the only means, to obtain approved data for a major repair or major alteration. However, if you—whether you’re an aircraft owner, operator, or Aviation Maintenance Technician (AMT), collectively termed an applicant—use the means described in the AC, you must follow it in all important respects.
