FAA Approved or Accepted Manuals
It is now a requirement to comply with the Element Design Data Collection Tool (ED-DCT) when submitting a manual to the FAA for approval or acceptance. The ED-DCT consists of multiple sections each containing a substantial number of questions that needed to be addressed in the manual, these questions are used by the FAA to evaluate newly submitted or re-issued manuals for approval or acceptance.
Tech one has recently recently reviewed and updated a general maintenance manual (GMM) for a client which included the ED-DCT listing. For guidance and information on this process please contact Tech One Aviation Consulting for further details.
