Importance of worldwide harmonisation: JAA operators may find themselves in violation of local laws on arrival All JAA States would need to file differences against Annex 18 Operators will be penalised by not being able to take advantage of less restrictive requirements
NPA 46 Amendments broadly under 5 headings: 1. Alignment with the Technical Instructions; 2. Review of Part 2 material; 3. Amendments proposed by DGSG; 4. Increased reference to Technical Instructions; 5. Amendment proposed by OST
NPA 46 1.Alignment with the Technical Instructions; 2.Review of Part 2 material; WP 59-03/ 60-03 WP-18-04
NPA 46 3. Amendments proposed by DGSG; New JAR-OPS 1.1145 General New ACJ-OPS 1.1160(b)(5)(4) Dangerous goods carried by passengers or crew – (will assist with anticipated changes in 2007-2008 Technical Instructions)
NPA 46 4.Increased reference to the Technical Instructions; An example: Dangerous goods training provisions completely revised to refer to the Technical Instructions
How referring to the Technical Instructions solves a problem: 2005 – 2006 edition of the Technical Instructions requires training in Recognition of undeclared dangerous goods JAR-OPS does not require such training and the earliest it could would be mid to late 2006, nearly 2 years late and just before a new edition (2007-2008) of the Technical Instructions If JAR-OPS required training in accordance with the Technical Instructions, problem goes away
NPA 46 5.Amendment proposed by OST Proposed new ACJ OPS 1.1215(b) reflecting the recommendation of the Technical Instructions to provide a summary when NOTOC is large
