UK Civil Aviation Authority and US Federal Aviation Administration agree continuation of Maintenance Implementation Procedures beyond 2022

The Civil Aviation Authority and the Federal Aviation Administration have provided an update on the planned changes to the Maintenance Implementation Procedures.

The existing procedures were agreed between the UK and the USA in January 2021, which allowed for the continuation of maintenance organisation approvals between the UK and the USA post-EU Exit until 31 December 2022. These will now be extended beyond the end of the year.

The industry does not need to take any action prior to 31 December 2022 as there will be an implementation period for the new procedures.
