OEMs, repair stations seek clear ICA policy
from Aviation Week
A proposed FAA policy on manufacturer-developed maintenance instructions is raising concerns that the agency is wandering into competitive issues rather than sticking to safety regulation. FAA proposed the policy to clarify its position on the availability of instructions for continued airworthiness, saying it was not acceptable for manufacturers/design-approval holders to limit the distribution of ICA by placing contractual requirements or adding restrictive language to control the use of the instructions.
