This order prescribes uniform Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) procedures and responsibilities for submitting and responding to aviation-related safety recommendations made by a Federal FAA employee (herein referred to as an “FAA employee”) or Foreign Civil Aviation Authority (FCAA) (collectively referred to as “safety recommendations”). Safety recommendations are based on safety concerns related to accident and incident prevention, including a safety deficiency of products, aircraft design, operation, maintenance, service practices, established standards, procedures, policies, and proposed corrective actions. This order specifically addresses the FAA Safety Recommendations Program (herein referred to as “the program”) and is managed by the FAA’s Office of Accident Investigation and Prevention (AVP), which is within the Aviation Safety Organization (AVS). The program is one of the FAA’s processes used to identify and correct safety deficiencies in the National Airspace System and on U.S.-manufactured aviation products used internationally.
