Background

The standards of this TSO will apply to all APUs used for any new application submitted after the effective date of this TSO.

However, under § 21.611(b) of the Federal Aviation Regulations, any major design change to an APU previously approved under TSO-C77 or TSO-C77a would require a new authorization under this TSO.
