Safety and Quality Policy
7.1 A quality system is a feature of OTAR Part 39 approvals and achieving compliance under Option One will be wholly reliant on the organisation’s quality system being approved by EASA. OTAR compliance will require the organisation’s quality monitoring procedures to be extended to include the OTAR differences.
7.2 Option Two applicants who are structured as a small organisation may have independent quality oversight arrangements in place, which may be acceptable to the OTAA. Whether and organisation is defined as ‘small’ will be dependent on various factors such as the experience of the organisation, resources employed, and the complexity and number of aircraft managed and under contract with air operators.
7.3 Option Two applicants should liaise with their respective OTAA at an early stage to establish a formal position on the type of quality system required.
