On February 7, 2003, the FAA issued policy memorandum number ANM-01-03 on the subject of guidance with respect to the recommended content of a Human Factors Certification Plan. After issuance and publication of the notice of final policy, an inadvertent error in the memo was brought to our attention. The error occurs in the “Effect of Policy” paragraph, second sentence. This sentence is corrected to read: “The general policy stated in this document does not constitute a new regulation or create what the courts refer to as a ‘binding norm.’ ” The error has been corrected and the revised memorandum, ANM-01-03(A) is available on the Internet at the following address:​rgl.
