CASR Part 90 - Additional airworthiness requirements
Part 90 of CASR sets out aircraft airworthiness requirements to supplement the existing design standards known as the type certification requirements. This Part applies to aircraft issued with a certificate of airworthiness. However, this Part does not apply to balloons, airships, sailplanes, light sport aircraft, experimental aircraft, amateur built aircraft, or aircraft issued with a special flight permit or a provisional certificate of airworthiness. Registered aircraft operators are responsible for ensuring compliance to these additional requirements prior to operations.

Part 90 post-implementation review (PIR)
CASA is aware of some omissions and unintended consequences associated with the implementation of Part 90 of CASR, both in the regulations and the associated Part 90 Manual of Standards (MOS).

Any amendments will be developed in close consultation with the Certification and Manufacturing Standards Sub-committee and issued in draft form for public comment. CASA will send notification via the Certification and Airworthiness mailing list when proposed amendments are available for public consultation.
Part 90 and the Part 90 Manual of Standards (MOS) came into effect 1 December 2010.
Part 90 can be found in volume 2 of CASR. Recent amendments to this Part may be listed in the Unincorporated Amendments.
