The CASA Airworthiness Protocols is a system of rules and processes governing how CASA makes regulatory decisions in relation to the airworthiness of aircraft. The protocol framework was established in early 2019 and the protocols are replacing previous manuals and worksheets as they are published.
The Certificate of Airworthiness Protocol provides a framework for the assessment of applications for a Standard or Special Certificate of Airworthiness. The protocol suite consists of the following documents:

- Workbook (COA.01) – Certificate of Airworthiness – this is an output document and records the essential steps that must be performed to assure a complete assessment of an airworthiness approval.
