a. We, the Federal Aviation Administration or FAA, wrote this order, in part, to rescind previous policy on interpretation of 14 CFR § 21.50(b) dated August 3, 1982 and August 8, 1983. Additionally, in this order we show aircraft certification office (ACO), engine certification office (ECO) (from now on both referred to as “ACO”) and aircraft evaluation group (AEG) staffs how to review instructions for continued airworthiness (ICA) and find their provisions acceptable, or approved, as appropriate. We also include their individual responsibilities for these tasks.
b. This order supplements 14 CFR §§ 21.50(b), 23.1529, 25.1529, 27.1529, 29.1529, 31.82, 33.4, 35.4, and their referenced appendixes. From now on, we refer to these 14 CFR sections and appendixes as the “applicable airworthiness regulations.”
