CD 1525MS - Proposed Part 145 Manual of Standards Amendment Instrument 2015 (No.1)
The Part 145 MOS specifies matters affecting the maintenance and airworthiness of aircraft for the purposes of Part 145 of CASR. The Part 145 Manual of Standards Amendment Instrument 2015 (No. 1) would extend to Part 145 AMOs the privileges afforded by regulation 30 of CAR to carry out maintenance on non-RPT aircraft.
Some of the amendments in this instrument remake provisions of the Part 145 Manual of Standards Amendment Instrument 2014
(No. 1) (the previous amendment instrument), which was disallowed by the Senate on 18 March 2015. The amendments included in this instrument that relate to the previous amendment instrument do not infringe the requirements of section 48 of the Legislative Instruments Act 2003, whose general effect is that amendments ‘the same in substance as’ disallowed amendments must not be remade within 6 months of the disallowance unless the Senate rescinds its resolution of disallowance.
In terms of the Senate’s expressed concerns about the previous amendment instrument, the changes included in this proposed MOS amendment are considered to be non-contentious; the amendments in the previous amendment instrument that were the subject of specific Senate debate have been omitted.
The proposed changes to extend CAR 30 privileges to Part 145 AMOs were not included in the previous amendment instrument.
The MOS amendment would also correct and clarify certain aspects of the Part 145 MOS, but does not significantly alter any existing policy.
