2.1 OTAR Part 145 allows organisations which hold an EASA 145 approval to qualify for an OTAR Part 145 approval under Option 1. This will not change. Any UK CAA-issued EASA 145 approval or any equivalent AMO approval issued by the UK CAA will also qualify for acceptance under Option 1 of OTAR Part 145.
2.2 OTAR Part 39 also accepts EASA Part M approval as a means of qualifying for an OTAR Part 39 CAMO approval. Again, this will continue and any equivalent approval issued by the UK CAA will also be accepted under Option 1 of OTAR Part 39.
2.3 The CAA has produced its own CAA Form 1 for certification of components under a CAA approval. This will be acceptable under OTARs. However, maintenance organisations should be aware that it may not be accepted by other NAAs on the same basis if the aircraft transfers to a different state’s register.
