This notice announces both new and revised national policy and procedures for Flight Standards Service (FS) aviation safety inspectors (ASI), aviation safety technicians (AST), and designees who conduct airman certification and related duties. The information in this notice provides a consistent procedure across certificate types when processing a superseded airman certificate, and reiterates some common policy regarding certificate revocation, suspension, and downgrade. This notice does not address specific procedural guidance regarding airman certificate eligibility, issuance, surrender, and downgrade; these topics remain the responsibility of the respective policy owner and vary based on certificate-specific regulatory requirements.
