KLX Secures Solution for MAG6’s Authorized Release Certificate Requirement
As previously communicated, the FAA and EASA released Maintenance Annex Guidance, Change 6 ("MAG6") in 2016. Under MAG6, new parts must be traceable to a Production Approval Holder (“PAH”) and be in satisfactory condition for installation – this includes PMA and TSOA parts. Further, an FAA Form 8130-3 Authorized Release Certificate must accompany all new parts.
Certain qualified KLX employees have obtained Delegated Airworthiness Representative, Function Code 19 status (Issuance of Original Airworthiness Approvals – FAA Form 8130-3). This status affords KLX the ability to deliver parts that satisfy our aftermarket customers’ documentation requirements under MAG6. Namely, KLX now has the ability to issue FAA Form 8130-3s on all new parts received from U.S. PAHs.
In conjunction with KLX’s ability to issue FAA Form 8130-3s, KLX has developed electronic systems and processes to enable the efficient issuance of these FAA Form 8130-3s for eligible parts. As such, KLX has the ability to issue FAA Form 8130-3 on same-day and AOG orders for eligible parts.
KLX will continue to provide Manufacturer’s Certificates of Conformity to customers who require them in addition to the FAA Form 8130-3s.
As a reminder, as an FAA-accredited distributor, KLX is already required to receive Standard Parts with a Manufacturer's Certificate of Conformity. MAG6 exempts Standard Parts resulting in no changes in documentation requirements.
