This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.

The Office of Aviation Safety in the Federal Aviation Administration chartered a team to assess the adequacy of current and pending regulations, policy, guidance and past practices for non-Type Certificate (TC) holders to obtain approval for developing replacement parts, alterations, and repairs. This Repair Alteration Fabrication (RAF) team reviewed all current regulations, policy and practices pertaining to the approval of replacement parts, repairs and alterations of critical engine parts. The team further reviewed concerns raised by TC holders and others, including the evaluation of other approval methods used by repair stations and owner/operator maintenance facilities. The team met with industry groups and companies to obtain additional information to assist them. The results of their efforts are a number of conclusions and recommendations they believe will improve the FAA's approval processes and foster the consistent application of safety standards for replacement parts, repairs, and alterations. This study is entitled “Aviation Safety (AVS) Repair, Alterations and Fabrication (RAF) Study.”
