Description

This advisory circular (AC) provides guidance and information for incorporation into operators’ existing receiving/inspection systems to help prevent the introduction of unairworthy parts into inventories. The aim is to establish sufficient traceability to establish that the part(s) were manufactured under Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 21, were previously determined to be Airworthy under 14 CFR part 43, and produced to established industry or U.S. Government standards or accepted foreign standards. Like all AC material, this AC is not mandatory and does not constitute a regulation. It is issued for guidance and to outline a method of compliance with the rules. This is one means but not the only means for developing a receiving inspection system. In lieu of following the method(s) prescribed herein, the applicant may elect to follow an alternate method.
