The training course aims to provide participants with the knowledge and understanding of the requirements to obtain an EASA Design Organisation Approval, the tasks, and responsibilities of such an organisation, and all relevant certification processes.
Based on the EU Regulation (EC) 2018/1139, the EU Commission has issued Regulation (EU) 748/2012 and. Annexed to this Regulation is Annex I - Part 21, with Section - A Technical Requirements and Section B - Procedures for Competent Authorities. In addition, the EU Commission issued Regulation (EU) 2022/201 and (EU) 2022/203 on 14 February 2022 amending Commission Regulation (EU) No 748/2012 introducing a requirement to operate a Safety Management System in the Production as well as in the Design Organisation.
This course presents in general terms the legal and regulatory system, as defined by the regulations identified above. It addresses the EASA design and production organisation approval process and under which conditions a Type Certificate, Restricted Type Certificate, a Supplemental Type Certificate, and an ETSO Authorisation will be issued by EASA.
Also, the classification of changes and repairs will be explained, and under which conditions changes and repairs are approved by EASA or alternatively approved by an approved Design Organisation.
