Your comments should stipulate “Comments to proposed FAA Order 8100.14A.” You may examine comments before and after the comment closing date by visiting Room 6 West, FAA Building 10B, 800 Independence Avenue, SW., Washington, DC, weekdays except Federal holidays, between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. The Director, Aircraft Certification Service, will consider all comments received on or before the closing date before issuing the final Order.
FAA Order 8100.14 was first published to coincide with the date the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) began operations in September 2003. This order provided interim policy and guidance on how to interact with the newly established EASA and the National Aviation Authorities of European Union Member States for the purposes of type, production, and airworthiness certification, and continued airworthiness of aeronautical products.
Over the past two years EASA moved its headquarters, expanded its infrastructure, and developed and implemented several internal policies. EASA's growth and resulting process changes have affected the interaction between EASA and the FAA, resulting in the first revision of Order 8100.14.
