CD 1706MS - Extension of ATSO and CAO 101.55 references in the Part 21 MOS
The third tier legislation that relates to Part 21 of the Civil Aviation Safety Regulations 1998 (CASR) is currently distributed across a range of sources, including Australian Technical Standard Orders (ATSO) and Civil Aviation Order (CAO) 101.55. It has been CASA's intention since 20151 to consolidate these standards into the Part 21 Manual of Standards (MOS) in order to provide industry with a single source of third tier legislation.
Due to legal drafting complexities, the transfer of the standards from CAO 101.55 and the ATSOs to the Part 21 MOS could not be completed before the Part 21 MOS was due to come into effect on 1 June 2016. The standards in CAO 101.55 and the ATSOs were instead incorporated by reference, with a self-imposed deadline of 31 May 2017 to complete the full transition.
CASA continues to make progress on the transition, however there is insufficient time to complete the work before 31 May 2017. This proposal would introduce a minor amendment to the Part 21 MOS to extend the deadline—by 6 months—by which the ATSOs and CAO 101.55 must be fully incorporated into the MOS.
