Project MS 04/01 - Post Implementation Review (PIR) of CASR Part 45 - Display of nationality and registration marks and aircraft registration identification plates
CASR Part 45 - 'Display of Nationality and Registration Marks and Aircraft Registration Identification Plates' became effective on 1 October 2000 and replaced Division 7 of Part 3 of CAR. Since that time there have been some industry difficulties in complying with the CASR Part 45 requirements. In response CASA undertook a Post Implementation Review (PIR) of CASR Part 45 to examine whether the requirements needed to be revised.
The primary objective of the PIR is to identify the existing limitations of the regulation and to address how they may be rectified to:
- Reduce the overall number of regulations
- Refine and combine existing requirements to reduce the number of regulations
- Provide flexibility for the display of aircraft markings
- Align with the standards and practices of other NAAs, where applicable to Australian operations
- Consider technical restrictions applying to the marking of composite materials
- Provide a process for obtaining direction from CASA for the marking of an aircraft where the regulations cannot be complied with for technical or other reasons
- Remove the requirements for certain markings that are no longer relevant to modern air traffic operations.
The proposed changes are expected to provide a number of benefits to industry which will allow aircraft operators more flexibility in marking their aircraft, provide a process to address situations where circumstances restrict the ability to comply with the marking requirements, and to reduce costs.
A working group consisting of CASA staff and industry participants will address these objectives, in concert with the Post-Implementation Review of CASR Part 47.
