Project CS 04/08

New consultation project
Project no. CS 04/08 titled Review of equipment and process control standards (CAO Parts 103 and 108) has been registered.
There are 40 equipment and process control standards contained in CAO Parts 103 and 108. Most of these standards do not appear to have a head of power in the regulations and many have not been reviewed for over 30 years. It is considered that many of these standards could be deleted or rewritten as an Advisory Circular (AC) or an Australian Technical Standard Order (ATSO), or incorporated into the Manual of Standard (MOS) of the relevant CASR Part.
This project sets out to review each standard contained in CAO Parts 108 and 103 and to ascertain whether each standard is applicable to the CARs and CASRs.
CAO Part 103 - Equipment standards
CAO Part 108 - Process control and specifications
