Part 92 post-implementation review (PIR)
The Part 92 PIR provides for the formal public and industry consultation process on Part 92. CASA's objective is to provide, as far as possible, a process that minimises the costs to CASA and industry, promotes the safe handling and carriage of dangerous goods on aircraft, meets the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) requirements and is consistent with those of other leading aviation States.
While the regulations incorporate the Technical Instructions, Part 92 also contains regulations that expand on, and take precedence over, the corresponding provisions of that document without being inconsistent with its intent.
During the operation of the PIR, guidance material will be developed and made available to assist the aviation and dangerous goods industries.
Standards Development project OS 05/01 has been approved to review Part 92. Any amendments will be issued in draft form for public consultation. CASA will send notification via the Dangerous goods mailing list when proposed amendments are available for public consultation.
Part 92 can be found in volume 2 of the Civil Aviation Safety Regulations 1998. Recent amendments to this Part may be listed in the Unincorporated Amendments.
