11.1 DAME's assessment and issue of Class 2 certificates

A DAME may issue a Class 2 medical certificate to an applicant if the DAME (a DAME delegate) holds a current instrument of delegation from CASA permitting this. The process set out in this Chapter for a DAME delegate to issue a medical certificate may only be used for Class 2 medical certificates OR Class 2 as part of Class 1. Only CASA may assess for, and issue, Class 1 and Class 3 medical certificates.

A DAME delegate may only issue a Class 2 medical certificate in accordance with the Limitations and Conditions set out in the DAME's instrument of delegation. One of those Conditions is that the DAME delegate must comply with any requirements, procedures or guidelines set out in Chapter 12 of the DAME Handbook.

To undertake a Class 2 medical assessment, the DAME must complete the Medical Assessment Report (MAR) in MRS. This identifies the conditions, their safety-relevance, and the certification decision.
