1. PURPOSE.

A. This revised bulletin provides information and guidance to Regional Flight Standards Divisions and to Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 121 air carrier teams, responsible for conducting a detailed In-Process/Task Inspection. This inspection is part of the comprehensive air carrier and repair station oversight system by Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Order 8300.10, Airworthiness Inspectors Handbook.

B. This bulletin will serve as the required item (R item) document action for the remainder of fiscal year (FY) 06. It provides guidance to the Regional Flight Standards Division managers, regional branch managers, Flight Standards District Office (FSDO), International Field Offices (IFO), and certificate management offices (CMO) that will direct or participate in the accomplishment of detailed In-Process/Task Inspection of a Substantial Maintenance Provider (SMP).

NOTE: Program Tracking Reporting Subsystem (PTRS) activity code 3082 will be the controlling administrative activity code.

C. Order 8300.10, volume 3, chapter 134 contains the instructions required to complete a detailed Air Carrier In-Process/Task Inspection/Team Event of a Substantial Maintenance Provider (SMP), and provides the PTRS and Air Transportation Oversight System (ATOS) information needed to document the inspection.

2. GENERAL.

A. The regional Flight Standards district manager will be responsible for the accomplishment of organizing, scheduling, and ensuring the accomplishment of the Detailed Air Carrier In-Process/Task Inspection/Team Event at the selected air agency facility. Only part 145 air agencies located within the region and appearing on at least two part 121 air carriers operations specifications (OpSpec) D091, Additional Maintenance Requirements Aircraft Engine, Propeller, and Propeller Control (Governor), will be subject to this inspection. The regional office, having oversight of the certificate-holding district office (CHDO) for the air agency, will select the team conducting the inspection.

B. The team composition will be aviation safety inspectors (ASI) presently assigned to the different air carrier certificate management teams that utilize this specific SMP. The assigned ASIs must have two years of air carrier surveillance experience and be familiar with their air carriers policies and procedures. The team leader must be from an air carrier that utilizes this particular 14 CFR part 145 air agency. He or she must be a 14 CFR part 121 air carrier principal maintenance inspector(PMI)/avionics inspector (PAI), an assistant principal, or a partial program manager (PPM).

C. The principal inspector (PI) of the part 145 air agency will serve in an advisory role and attend all meetings; however, he/she should not function as either an active team inspector or the team leader.

3. BACKGROUND.

A. This bulletin contains Flight Standards wide policy/guidance for a team event inspection that will confirm the standards air carriers must meet. This process, outlined in 14 CFR part 121, section 121.363, holds air carriers primarily responsible for the performance of all maintenance performed on its aircraft, engines, propellers, appliances, equipment, and parts thereof in accordance with (IAW) its manual and the CFRs. The carrier may arrange with another person for the performance of that maintenance; however, this does not relieve the carrier of the responsibility specified in section 121.363(a).

B. The Aircraft Maintenance Division, AFS-300, developed a detailed Air Carrier In-Process/Task Inspection/Team Event of an SMP that is dynamic in nature while incorporating a systems safety approach. To achieve a high level of confidence, safety must remain an integral part of the process. For this reason, Flight Standards has developed this team event. The intent is to focus on multiple air carriers outsource maintenance programs and the outsource facilities where the maintenance is performed.

C. The FAA has incorporated team event inspections in an effort to work smarter by focusing on multiple air carrier outsource maintenance repair processes performed by a single maintenance provider.

D. The FAA objectives are to bring standardization to air carrier outsourcing surveillance. One method is to accomplish an Outsource Oversight Prioritization Tool (OPT), ref: 8300.10 appendix 9. This new tool will allow the certificate-holding district office (CHDO) to prioritize its outsourcing surveillance, enabling the FAA to allocate resources to areas of highest risk.

E. CHDOs with air carriers that utilize the selected part 145 repair station SMP will benefit from the team event whether or not they participated in the team event. The results of the team event inspections will allow the FAA to direct inspections to the higher risk areas.

4. PROCEDURES.

A. The Detailed In-Process/Task Inspection of maintenance in progress/work performed, for a specific air carrier at an SMP with multiple air carriers contracts, will be the prime objective of this inspection. The team members having experience with inspections, such as the Detailed In-Process/Task Inspection, will verify that the SMP is following the air carriers Continuous Airworthiness Maintenance Program (CAMP) without deviation. This process will be verifiable by observations and step-by-step procedures.

B. The In-Process/Task Inspection will be performed IAW the ATOS Data Collection Tool (DCT) Element Performance Inspection(EPI) 1.3.7 and Order 8300.10, Volume 3, Chapter 8, Conduct a Detailed Process/Task Inspection. This chapter contains checklists and guidance that shall be included in the inspection process.

C. Order 8300.10, Volume 2, Chapter 69, Evaluate an Air Carriers Outsource Maintenance Process, IAW section 121.363 requires each air carrier to review, evaluate, accept/reject, and authorize the specific Outsource Maintenance Providers (OMP) processes and procedures to verify the maintenance is performed IAW those guidelines.

D. Manuals necessary to ensure compliance with each air carriers CAMP must be on hand at the repair station.

E. All discrepancies/findings discovered during the inspection of an individual air carriers outsource maintenance programs use PTRS for non-ATOS air carriers and the DCT EPI 1.3.7, IAW the instructions in the 8300.10 appendix 9 for ATOS air carriers. (One could consider this phase one or the starting phase of the inspection process). All identified findings must be documented in the appropriate data collection program. These findings must either be corrected prior to the team event, or a plan must be enacted to ensure the discrepancies/findings will be corrected before the beginning of the team event phase. Build as much autonomy into the process as possible so the decision to start the second phase rests with the team leader.

F. Non-ATOS Air Carriers should use ATOS EPI 1.3.7, Outsource Organization (AW), as an inspection plan/checklist. Discrepancies/findings discovered during the team event are to be documented, and the corrected actions must be noted in the PTRS. Inspectors must document findings using appropriate PTRS activity codes and place PTRS 3082 in the National Use field block on the PTRS form.

G. For ATOS Air Carriers, the EPI 1.3.7 Outsource Organization (AW), form is the surveillance plan. All findings discovered during the team event must be documented IAW the ATOS EPI 1.3.7 recording process.

H. Air carriers and the SMPs must demonstrate to the inspecting ASI that the SMPs practices and procedures, personnel, equipment, and facilities have been evaluated and accepted by the air carrier, and meet the air carriers CAMP requirements. One method of compliance (however not the only method) may be a letter from the air carrier bearing the air carrier letterhead and signed by an air carrier authority. The air carriers letter of approval or acceptance must be on file at the repair station and reviewed as part of the inspection. Please remember when filling out the PTRS, put the air carrier designator in the designator block, and the repair station designator in the affiliated designator block on the PTRS form.

I. Once a Detailed Air Carrier In-Process/Task Inspection/Team Event of a SMP has been completed, all part 121 PIs who participated in the event, and whose assigned air carriers identified the selected repair stations in their OpSpec paragraph D091, should consider this requirement (3640/5640) closed for this fiscal year. This means that this air carrier In-Processes/Task Inspection/Team Event should be dynamic enough to satisfy the yearly-planned required inspections (3640/5640 R-items) for all part 121 CMOs identified herein.

5. TEAM COMPOSITION. The Aircraft Maintenance Division, AFS‑300, has determined that if an inspection were to be dynamic in nature, the team approach would best serve the process. Team composition must be just as dynamic. The team leader must be an experienced air carrier principal, assistant principal, or PPM. It is very important that the team members have 2 years of surveillance experience as an air carrier ASI. Ideally, ASIs assigned to this type of inspection should have experience in outsource maintenance facility inspections; however, it is not a hard and fast requirement. Remember, there is no substitute for experience!

NOTE: In cases where the number of affected ASIs exceed the number of ASIs necessary for the team composition, the regional branch manager will select representatives from the CHDOs whose air carriers have the highest quantity and complexity of work performed by the repair station.

6. ACTION.

A. The team leader must provide the regional branch manager and the part 145 air agency PI with the documented listing of discrepancies. The branch manager shall forward the discrepancy listing via e-mail to the PIs that are responsible for the air carriers which have this air agency appearing on OpSpecs D091. Unless a PI has other issues based on risk assessments, this annual inspection requirement should be satisfactory.

B. The air carriers PMI is responsible for the inspection follow up. Any discrepancy that appears to be in violation of the CFRs is the responsibility of the air carriers PMI. The PI should follow through with any investigation and processing IAW Order 2150.3, Compliance and Enforcement Program. Once all the discrepancies are corrected, the participating air carriers PMI should e-mail the air carriers regional branch manager and inform him/her, that the inspection process has been completed and the controlling PTRS 3082 can be signed off. If a PMI of a cognizant air carrier did not have any discrepancies, a negative report should be submitted stating that there were no discrepancies, and that the inspection cycle is completed.

CHAPTER 134. CONDUCT A DETAILED AIR CARRIER IN-PROCESS/TASK INSPECTION/TEAM EVENT OF SUBSTANTIAL MAINTENANCE PROVIDERS

SECTION 1.    BACKGROUND

1.      PROGRAM TRACKING AND REPORTING SUBSYSTEM (PTRS) ACTIVITY CODE PROCEDURES AND INFORMATION.

A.      The Regional Directed Detailed Air Carrier In-Process/Task Inspection/Team Event, PTRS number 3082 is made up of Air Transportation Oversight System (ATOS) Element Performance Inspection (EPI) 1.3.7 and PTRS activity codes 3651/5651 and 3640/5640, PTRS 3082 should be considered the controlling document, meaning it is administrative only. For this reason, we ask that you do not document information or findings under the 3082 PTRS activity code. Once the inspection is completed, close the 3082 PTRS record following the guidance located at the end of this chapter.

B.      For non-ATOS Certificate Management Teams (CMT), all information or findings noted during this detailed air carrier in‑process/task inspection shall be recorded under the PTRS activity code associated with the finding, in accordance with (IAW) the PTRS Procedures Manual (PPM).

C.            For ATOS CMTs, record any information or findings noted during the detailed air carrier in‑process/task inspection IAW Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Order 8400.10, Air Transportation Operations Inspectors Handbook, Appendix 6, Air Transportation Oversight System.

D.     EPI 1.3.7 and PTRS activity codes 3651/5651 and 3640/5640 are integral parts of the 3082 inspection. Since this inspection is part ATOS element and part PTRS activity codes, data collection standardization must be a consideration. This inspection is a component of a National Program Guideline (NPG) and the PTRS subsystem is the data collection repository for the NPG, therefore the inspection completion should be documented using the PTRS activity codes provided below.

NOTE:  Documenting PTRS 3082 task inspection using the below listed PTRS activity codes will give the assigned aviation safety inspector (ASI) the ability to sign off required items (R items) that may have been issues for the present year.

E.      Contract Maintenance Facility (substantial maintenance provider (SMP)):

          Maintenance: 3640

                    Avionics: 5640

F.      Detailed Process Inspection:

          Maintenance: 3651

          Avionics: 5651

G.     The labor distribution reporting (LDR) code for PTRS 3082 task inspection is presently under development. It is recommended PTRS activity code 3640 be used in the interim. The following is an example of the Castle LDR composition for most entries.

2.      OBJECTIVE.

This chapter provides guidance to the Regional Flight Standards Divisions (RFSD) and to the Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 121 air carrier teams that will be responsible for conducting a detailed in‑process/task assessment/inspection. This assessment/inspection is part of the enhanced air carrier and repair station oversight system and are an integral part of the NPG. Participation of team members will be by regional invitation. This assessment/inspection will use database analysis and risk management principals and is dynamic in nature.

3.      GENERAL.

The individual air carrier aviation safety inspectors (ASI) (team members) will complete an air carrier individual assessment (EPI 1.3.7). After the team reviews the EPI, the team will determine whether the individual air carriers outsourced maintenance programs, processes, and procedures are clear, concise, and easily followed. If functioning as designed, the procedures, controls, process measures, and interfaces should provide the desired results. (The assessment/inspection is considered Phase One).

A.      The team should provide a joint risk assessment, broken down by air carrier and present it to the team leader.

B.      As time permits, notify the PMI of any problems, findings, and corrections made during the inspection.

NOTE:  This Air Carrier In-Process/Task Inspection/Team Event is regionally sponsored and dynamic enough to satisfy the non-ATOS CMTs NPG yearly requirements and assessment (PTRS 3640/5640) and/or the ATOS CMTs Comprehensive Surveillance Plan (CSP) scheduled assessments (ATOS element 1.3.7). Unless a principal inspector (PI) has concerns based on other risk assessments, the inspection requirement of this SMP should be satisfied.

C.     At the completion of the Detailed In‑Process/Task Inspection (Phase Two) the team should be able to verify that the SMP is following all of the individual user air carriers Continuous Airworthiness Maintenance Programs (CAMP). The verification through the observation of step-by-step processes and procedures are outlined in 8300.10, volume 3, chapter 8, Conduct a Detailed Process/Task Inspection.

D.     References for the air carrier CAMP minimum requirements are located in Order 8300.10, volume 2, chapter 64, Evaluate Continuous Airworthiness Maintenance Program/Revision.

E.             Order 8300.10, volume 2, chapter 69, Evaluate Part 121/135 (10 or More) Outsource Maintenance Arrangement, requires each air carrier to review, evaluate, accept/reject, and authorize the specific Outsource Maintenance Provider (OMP) programs, practices, and procedures which are contained in the Repair Station Manual (RSM) and Quality Control Manual (QCM). The air carriers manual system should contain the necessary instructions and procedures to ensure compliance with its CAMP.

NOTE:  The air carrier must make available the appropriate parts of its manual system. Reference 14 CFR  121.363(a)(2) and 121.367(a).

F.      Prior to conducting this Detailed In‑Process/Task Inspection, the assigned ASIs should review the data/information found in the Safety Performance Analysis System (SPAS).

4.      SCOPE.

A.      The team focused in-depth inspection program is an integral part of the Enhanced Air Carrier and Repair Station Outsourcing Oversight System. The FAA recognizes that often a team inspection is more effective due to the complexity of the FAA surveillance system. The team inspection is larger in scope, and has more depth and time to accomplish the FAA surveillance goals.

B.      The inspection is for part 145 Repair Stations and to verify that the part 145 Repair Station is performing maintenance IAW the air carriers CAMP. The inspection will cover repair stations, which have a class or limited rating for airframes and power plants. The regional branch managers staff will only schedule these inspections for repair stations that appear on at least three or more 14 CFR part 121 Air Carriers OpSpec D091. This will be an annual requirement. Invitations to participate will be sent by the regional branch manager to each the Flight Standards District Office (FSDO) or Certificate Management Office (CMO) that has the SMP on their D091 OpSpec and meet the above criteria. Each part 121 certificate should be represented on the inspection team. After the invitations are received, the CHDO of the part 121 certificate holder may elect not to participate in the team event. If this is the case the FSDO or CMO/unit manager should notify the regional branch manager and inform them of the reason not to participate. If the regional branch manager agrees that non-participation is acceptable, the regional branch manager should then recommend to the manager that a copy of the air carriers procedures be forwarded to the regional branch manager to be included in the team review. When each air carrier has representation, the inspection will be IAW each air carriers CAMP requirements.

NOTE:  Based on recommendations, inviting a participating air carrier representative to be present during the inspection will aid the air carrier and the team, if problems arise.

C.     Due to its dynamics, it may be used for other regional requirements. This type of inspection can verify previous surveillance efforts, allegations of improper maintenance or component failure trends. Team inspections based on these reasons should be comprehensive and in-depth. The team in-process inspection can aid the RFSD in making a determination about the repair stations ability to follow a maintenance scope, comply with process specs, follow shop manuals, and follow each air carriers CAMP requirements. Once the team inspection is completed, the FAA should have first hand knowledge of the repair stations compliance with each carriers CAMP requirement.

D.     It should be noted that the primary purpose of this inspection is to verify a 14 CFR part 121 air carrier's ability to oversee its contracted repair station(s). As a result, it does not verify a repair station's ability to meet all its own requirements under its authorizations. This inspection should not be considered to meet the requirements of repair station inspections.

E.      Team Composition. The size and complexity of the in-depth inspection will determine the composition of the team. The team is comprised of an experienced air carrier team leader and as many experienced and trained air carrier ASIs as necessary. Each and every certificate holder that has the SMP on its D091 OpSpec and meets the criteria in paragraph 4 of this document, should be invited to participate in the team event inspection. The regional branch manager will assign the team leader and must carefully consider the qualifications of each team member; the team leader should assist the regional branch manager with the selection of the team members.

(1)      A team leader (lead ASI ) should have at least two years experience as either an air carrier PI, air carrier assistant PI or an air carrier partial program manager. All team members should have training and two years experience as an air carrier ASI. It is desirable to have the repair station PI serve in an advisory capacity utilizing his/her knowledge and expertise of the assigned repair station. Inspectors who do not meet the experience requirements, as stated for team member, can serve on the team in a training capacity. However, the team should not have more than one trainee assigned.
(2)      Team composition is proportional to the size of the repair station. (The suggested rule of thumb is that a small repair station (less than 250 employees) have four ASIs and a large repair station (1000 or more employees) have eight ASIs. Including the team leader, four ASIs are the minimum and nine the maximum.)
(3)      In cases where the number of affected ASIs exceeds the number of ASIs necessary for the team composition, the regional branch manager will select representatives from those CHDOs whose air carriers have the highest quantity and complexity of maintenance performed by the repair station.

NOTE: Air carriers should have a maintenance representative present during the final planning phase, the inspection phase, and the out briefing. This will prove invaluable should finding be uncovered. The representing ASIs should extend invitations.

5.      INSPECTOR RESPONSIBILITIES.

In preparation, the team lead and team members should familiarize themselves with the following, as applicable:

          The applicable 14 CFR, part 121 air carriers operations specifications (OpSpecs), CAMP, General Maintenance Manual and other manual procedures that cover maintenance scope for the item or items that are going to be tracked and processed through the facility

          The applicable 14 CFR, part 145, Air Agency OpSpecs, ratings, limited ratings, limited specialized services, and process specifications and its Capabilities List

          Applicable references, as listed in section 2, paragraph 2A

          Applicable forms, as listed in section 2, paragraph 2B

          Previous ATOS records, including completed EPI records that were performed by the air carriers utilizing this specific SMP

          SPAS Repair Station Assessment Module (RSAM) for past findings and flags

          Completed PTRS records


SECTION 2.                  PROCEDURES

1.      PREREQUISITES AND COORDINATION REQUIREMENTS.

A.             Prerequisites:

          Knowledge of the regulatory requirements of 14 CFR parts 43, 121, and 145, as applicable

          Knowledge of each applicable air carriers CAMP

          Knowledge of each applicable air carriers Continuous Analysis and Surveillance System (CASS)

          Successful completion of Airworthiness Inspectors Indoctrination Course(s) or previous equivalent

B.      Team Event Organization and Coordination.

(1)      The Regional Flight Standards Manager with oversight responsibilities of the targeted SMP will select a qualified team leader.
(2)      PIs assigned to the repair station certificate are an invaluable resource. Their insight of the certificate will aid the team and the team leader. Their knowledge of the certificate can help guide the team and the leader. If the repair station PI is an advisor to the team, the PI should attend all team meetings and be an integral part of the teams functions and discussions. The PIs should provide support, information, and counsel to the team and in addition, assist the team leader. However, to avoid conflicts of interest, the PIs roles will be advisory only.
(3)      The Regional Flight Standards Branch Manager and/or his staff will select the team leader, determine the number of inspectors required, select team members, and provide the team leader a list of the air carriers that utilize the selected SMP. The team is to be comprised of part 121 air carrier inspectors from the assigned CHDOs that provide oversight for the air carriers that use this SMP.
(4)      The team leader and team members will evaluate all necessary data (including but not limited to SAI, EPI, SPAS, and PTRS records) prior to the team event.
(5)      The team leader should identify specific duties that will be required during the assessment/inspection.
(6)      The team should utilize the ATOS data collection tools when reviewing the aspects of maintenance from receiving inspection to approval for returne to service. This process should be accomplished IAW the carriers CAMP. (Ref. 14 CFR  121.363, 121.367, and 145.205).
(7)      The detailed process inspection as outlined in Order 8300.10, vol. 3, ch. 8 will involve varying degrees of complexity. At times, there may be a need for coordination with other offices (i.e., AEG, ACO, CMO, CMU, FSDOs, and IFOs) for clarification of procedures and processes.
(8)      If a repair station located outside the United States is selected by a regional branch manager to participate in a detailed air carrier in-process/task inspection/team event PTRS 3082, the following areas must be considered and addressed.
(a)         The repair station PIs, by policy, are advisory members to the inspecting team and are required to be on hand during the inspection. This requirement is the same for the team focused in-depth inspection of a part 145 repair station PTRS 3614/5614.
(b)         Fiscal constraints mandate the regional branch manager and IFO manager consider whether to coordinate and schedule both inspections PTRS 3082/3614/5614 at the same time. A prudent decision would be to make every effort to coordinate all inspections.

3.      AIR CARRIER IN‑PROCESS/TASK INSPECTION PROCEDURES.

A.      Prepare for the Inspection. Accomplish the following:

(1)      The regional branch manager or the team leader should contact the repair station CHDO manager and PI as soon possible. The assigned PI will notify the repair station management that a team in-depth inspection is scheduled for the air carriers having this specific repair station/SMP on their D091 OpSpec.
(2)      The team leader shall provide an in brief to the repair station management before each inspection. This briefing will inform the manager how long the inspection should take and how many inspectors will be on the team. The team leader should ensure the repair station management understands that this is an inspection of the air carriers and not the repair station.
(3)      Should it be necessary, the team leader should obtain FAA Office of the Chief Counsel (AGC) guidance as soon as the probability of a significant or complex enforcement action is uncovered. For all enforcement cases, the team leader will ensure that the inspection team collects sufficient items of proof to support the case and provides these materials in a useable form to the CHDO.
(4)      Identify the in‑process/task.
(5)      Review the inspection criteria.
(6)      Review for clarity vol. 2, ch. 69, and vol. 3, chs. 8, 132, and 133, for additional air carrier outsource maintenance systems and procedures.
(7)      Identify and review the air carriers outsource maintenance procedures, information, guidance, methods, manuals, or documents to be utilized to verify the maintenance performed is performed without deviation to the specific air carriers procedures required by its CAMP. (Ref. vol. 2, ch. 69, and air carriers OpSpec D091.)
(8)      This air carrier team event will verify that the SMP performs each air carriers maintenance IAW the specific air carriers CAMP. Ensure all air carriers Outsource Maintenance Organizational Systems contain the required methods or procedures to identify and disseminate those portions of its CAMP. (Ref. vol. 2, ch. 69, and air carriers OpSpec D091.)
(9)      The air carriers may accept different SMP programs or process requirements for maintenance, preventive maintenance, and alterations. However, the manner used by the air carrier to evaluate, accept, reject or authorize these process or procedures should be explained in the SMP section of the air carriers manual. This allows the SMPs accepted programs, processes and procedures to become an extension of the part 121 air carriers CAMP.
(10)  Inform the ASI team members and air carrier reps of the in‑process/tasks to be observed during the inspection.
(11)  Review the SMP outsources contracting or subcontracting procedures in lieu of the air carriers own programs.
(12)  Verify and identify any maintenance that may be contracted out by the SMP, to another SMP either certificated or noncertificated. The team leader should review the name, the certificate number if any, and identify any outsource maintenance provider that is contacted by the SMP. The team will verify whether maintenance is performed IAW the air carriers CAMP.

B.      Perform the Inspection. The following steps are to serve as a guide in performing an air carrier in‑process/task inspection. Certain steps may not be appropriate, depending on the complexity of the repair station or air carrier.

(1)      Inspect and review, as applicable, air carrier outsource maintenance instructions. Verify that:
(a)         Each air carriers outsource maintenance information including procedures to be used in the performance and documentation of the specific air carriers intended maintenance, inspection, repair, or overhaul of its aircraft, engine, component, or parts is provided by the respective air carrier to the SMP IAW its air carrier OMP program. (Ref.  121.363.)
(b)         The air carriers maintenance instructions reflect the proper technical data for the maintenance intended, and provide all the information required for completing that maintenance IAW the air carriers CAMP. (Ref.  121.367 and OpSpec D091.)
(c)          Documentation at the SMP reveals the air carrier has reviewed, evaluated, and accepted or rejected the SMP programs, processes, and procedures as evidenced within its CAMP or other means.
(d)         During the inspection, the ASI should review the current outsource maintenance arrangement acceptance letters, or other means of authorization the air carrier has given the SMP for their use. The SMP should keep the letters on file at the facility.
(e)          Support equipment such as, cleaning (dip) tanks, high speed balancing equipment, inspection equipment, or ovens are inspected, cleaned, maintained, and documented as required by the appropriate aircraft, aircraft engine, or component manufacturer and are maintained IAW the Manufacturers Standard Practices Manual and/or the air carriers CAMP. (Ref  121.363, 121.367, and OpSpec D091.)
(f)           The air carrier provides documentation reflecting its CASS to ensure that the SMP has complied with its CASS reporting system and the air carrier has methods for corrective actions taken on any deficiencies or inadequacies found by the SMP while performing maintenance for the carrier. This generally requires the air carrier to provide results of audits performed on this SMP, providing documentation of their findings and corrective actions taken and recorded in a log or file. (Ref.  121.373)
(g)         All maintenance documentation procedures are IAW the air carriers CAMP unless other specific procedures for maintenance documentation are to be followed. This includes but is not limited to, the maintenance log discrepancy sheets, required maintenance cards, the inspection forms and the sign-off sheets, shift turn-over logs, parts receiving inspection documents and tracking forms, maintenance records, and procedures. (Ref.  121.380, vol. 2, ch. 69, and OpSpec D091)
(h)         The SMP can provide verification the air carrier trained its personnel in a manner equivalent to the requirements of the air carriers CAMP. This may require that SMP personnel attend specific courses and/or maintain specific levels of proficiency. (Ref.  121.375.)

D.     Document the Inspection.

(1)      The team leader will ensure a copy of the completed inspection report and a copy of the entire findings are forwarded to the CHDO management responsible for the SMP, and one copy to the regional branch manager. Occasionally, AFS‑300 and AFS‑900 Flight Standards Safety Analysis Information Center (FSAIC) may track the inspection outcomes looking for national implications.
(2)      Team members will document their own findings in ATOS/PTRS as applicable. Each finding should be documented separately. Use the appropriate ATOS entry or PTRS activity code.
(3)      Team members representing an ATOS air carrier, shall document the completion of the ATOS inspection results in the appropriate EPI 1.3.7 (Outsource Maintenance Provider). All inspection documentation shall be IAW the guidance in Order 8400.10, appendix 6.
(4)      Team members representing a non‑ATOS air carrier shall document the completion of this inspection in PTRS using activity code 3640/5640, IAW 8300.10, vol. 3, ch. 132 and the NPG.
(5)      The team leader on behalf of the regional branch manager shall close the PTRS 3082 R item. The PTRS will be closed with the following information, enter a (C) closed in the status box, enter an (I) information in the results box, and enter the PTRS designator for the repair station that has been inspected in the affiliated designator block. Please enter the following statement in comment block IV, The Detailed In‑Process/Task Inspection/team event has been completed.

5.      FUTURE ACTIVITIES.

Normal surveillance.


Tips for the team leader

1.      Identify each team member a soon as possible.

2.      The regional branch manager should decide early in the planning process to fund the team event and the individual members.

3.      Try to keep your team in the same hotel. Insist each inspector bring a laptop computer, as the attached checklists (tools) are electronic. It will keep your job as report writer much simpler. Memory sticks are a must. Cut and paste works well.

4.      Guidance for the team composition is in this chapter. The team leader should ensure there are adequate team members to effectively complete the inspection.

5.      A recent inspection had 4 carriers and it took a solid 4 days with 3 teams (8 inspectors) splitting the task to complete the Team Event phase. Don't forget about the In‑process/Task inspection that each team member must do. In all, we have 6 full days on-site.

6.      Get the air carrier and the substantial maintenance provider engaged early in the process, and include them as much as possible during planning. By including the operators and SMP early, the team hopes to have most of the findings matched up with a proposed comprehensive fix in the final report.

7.      In the process, the team can be split into three sub-groups, and then divide the inspection among the groups. This splits up team members from the same certificate.

8.      Start compiling your report as soon as the findings start coming in, and update nightly. This helps prevent the mad dash to finish the paperwork at the end.
