ICAA Exemption E 004/2011- FAA engine's manufacturer rebuild engine
ICAA has issued an Exemption no. E 004/2011 (see attachment). This exemption allow Part 66 licensed persons and maintenance organisations in Iceland to accept an FAA Authorized Release Certificate, FAA Form 8130-3 for rebuilt engine that has been rebuilt by the engine's manufacturer that are not a holder of an FAA repair station approval and therefore not with an EASA approval. This exemption will most likely be applicable to piston engines although there are no limit to what kind of engines it covers.
Please pay attention to the following:
- This is only applicable to engines.
- The same provision does not apply to components rebuild by the production approval holders. Maintained components still need dual release coming from US or Canada.
- The FAA Form 8130-3 must be completed as per Section 5.1.4 of the Technical Implementation Procedures (TIP). This is very important.
- The FAA Form 8130-3 must be signed on the left side, not the right side as is normal for the form with dual release. See FAA Memorandum attached although is was issued before the agreement that the exemption is referring to, but explain that the form has to be signed on the left side. FAA rules allow production approval holder (PAH) to rebuild its products, including engines, without being a repair station and issue FAA form 8130-3 signed on the right side. That is not acceptable for EASA Member States.
