Who is affected by the EFB regulations
All AOC holders must refer to and comply with the CAO’s. All private pilots are encouraged to read the CAAP.
AOC holders and AOC applicants
AOC Holders, including foreign operators, incorporating EFBs in their operations are specifically bound by the AOC conditions set out in Appendix 9 of CAO 82.0 and should carefully review the contents of the Electronic Flight Bags CAAP to determine applicable requirements.
An operator will need to have procedures for the use of EFB in a paperless cockpit.
Documents already approved in accordance with the relevant regulations do not need approval if they have been stored in the EFB in essentially the same form as the original document.
Whilst an approval for the use of an EFB is not required, the proposed use of portable EFB must be in accordance with the conditions of the AOC under Part 82 of the Civil Aviation Orders dealing with EFB and those procedures detailed in an Operations Manual amendment. If a proposed Operations Manual amendment does not meet the requirements of Part 82 dealing with EFB CASA, in accordance with Regulation 215 of CAR 1988, may issue a direction requiring the AOC holder to revise or vary the amendment so that it meets those requirements.
More information on what you need to do is available on the 'What do I need to do' webpage.
Private pilots are advised to read the Electronic Flight Bags CAAP for detailed information.
