Making changes to an approved manual
You can continue to use MAAT to update your manuals or exposition as the need arises.
It is simple to make a change or variation to an approved manual – just create a draft, update the relevant section/s and then submit the manual to CASA for assessment. An application form will also need to be sent to the Permission Application Centre (PAC) and a fee may apply.
The process for reassessment is basically the same as for the initial version but for any subsequent version/s all updated sections must be submitted at the same time.
Manual variation and assessment process
The diagram below is an overview of the manual variation and assessment process.
Text version of process
