  • The audit process in general
  • A list of specific areas of attention to be audited
  • Maintaining the test facility in such a manner that it meets audit requirements
Rationale
Content
This document has been updated to align some terms with ARP5758 and ARP6028 and to include recommendations regarding records of test facility events and cybersecurity. Test facilities are frequently audited by various authorities, regulatory bodies, gas turbine engine OEMs, and customers. The main purpose of the audit process is to ensure that the test cell operator/owner provides evidence that the facility is maintained in such a way that it meets the requirements set by the OEM and authorizing bodies and that the test cell meets the conditions set in the correlation process.
This document describes guidelines and criteria to audit a test facility both from an auditor perspective in addition to the user/owner's perspective.
