Navigating Requirements for International Certification of Aviation Products
This course describes the basic elements of the process for achieving a successful aircraft certification globally once certification by the State of Design has been accomplished. The regulatory framework established under ICAO is presented with discussion of how major countries around the world comply with the ICAO Standards and Recommended Practices (SARPs). The uncertainty of how each country performs validation is a challenge. This course identifies common validation practices and key bilateral agreements which facilitate acceptance of aviation products from one country to another. Location and content of critical validation information to ensure compliance to procedures is identified. Applying the processes specific to Bilateral Agreements, type validation principles, and special import requirements are key to receiving global approval of aircraft designs in a timely manner to promote sales and operations world-wide.
