Repair Stations - Notice of Proposed Rulemaking and Request for Comments

Docket ID: FAA-2006-26408
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)
Parent Agency: Department of Transportation (DOT)
The rulemaking would withdraw a previously published Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM). The NPRM proposed to revise the system of ratings and require repair stations to establish a quality program. The NPRM also proposed to require each repair station to maintain a capability list, designate a chief inspector, and have permanent housing for facilities, equipment, materials, and personnel. The proposal would have specified additional instances where the FAA may deny a repair station certificate, and clarified some existing repair station regulations. We are withdrawing the NPRM, because we have determined that it does not adequately address the current repair station environment and because of the significant issues commenters raised.
