Regulation (EU) 2023/989 amended Regulation (EU) No 1321/2014 (‘Continuing Airworthiness (CAW) Regulation’) as regards the requirements on maintenance licences and training organisations set out in
Annex III (Part-66) and Annex IV (Part-147) to the CAW Regulation, introducing, among others, new training methods and teaching technologies and other improvements as part of the regular update of Part-147. In particular, amendments were introduced in order to:
- facilitate the type rating endorsement of aircraft when there are no organisations approved in accordance with Part-147 offering type training on that aircraft, maintaining the same level of safety and a level playing field;
- update the basic knowledge training syllabus in Part-66;
- enhance the efficiency of the ‘on-the-job training’ (OJT) required for the first type rating endorsement in the maintenance licence category;
- enhance the efficiency of the maintenance personnel training system with new training methods and new teaching technologies;
- improve and correct the elements that emerged with the implementation of the CAW Regulation.
This Decision amends the Acceptable Means of Compliance (AMC) & Guidance Material (GM) to the CAW Regulation in order to support the implementation of the CAW Regulation.
