Managing a busy Design Organisation is a constant challenge and regulatory requirements are often percieved to add to the burden. Part 21 was created to help boost the competitiveness of the aviation industry by promoting efficient regulatory and certification processes and lowering industry certification liaison effort. So, even though you are generating a compliant design, how well did you perform its execution? How does the regulation interface with your existing management system - and how can you ensure your DOA will deliver value to your organisation?

Key Content 

  • The international legal environment - ICAO, EASA, relationship with other competent authorities, etc.
  • Introduction to high-level applicable regulations and the structure of the Implementing Rules and supporting Certification Specifications
  • Familiarisation with the EU Regulation(s) containing Part 21 and how to manage amendments
  • Review the reasoning behind Part 21, from both organisational and regulatory perspectives
  • Summary of all Part21 Subparts so as to put Subpart J in context
  • Detailed review of Part 21 Subpart J
  • Practical advice on the Design Assurance System (including the Handbook, Procedures, Organisation Charts and the roles and responsibilities of CVEs)
  • Part 21 amendments in the EASA pipeline (e.g. SMS and LOI)
  • Performance-based oversight and introduction of the concept of “what does good look like?”
