New way to comply with the SMS & MCM manual requirement

24th of October 2017, 2:29 PM

As of Oct. 3rd, 2017, the DCA will no longer require the submission on the SMS and MCM (Maintenance Control Manual) manual for acceptance in order to ensure compliance with Articles 12.3.2 and 12.8.2 of AUA-OPS 2, under private operations.

Compliance with the above articles will now be accomplished by completing the Compliance Statements, attached in this email, for each applicable manual and send that form back to the DCA, to receive acceptance of your manual.

Once again, we would like to point out that you will not be required to submit a copy of the Manual as long as you have submitted a copy of the Compliance Statement.


The Compliance Statement forms are available on the website:

DCA Form INS 2.013OCS for SMS Manual
DCA Form INS 4.044OCS for MCM


The DCA will retain the right to request a copy of the SMS or MCM at any time only if deemed necessary.

In case there are any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at Manuals@airsafetyfirst.com
