(as amended)

made under regulation 11.160 of the Civil Aviation Safety Regulations 1998.

This compilation was prepared on 23 April 2020 taking into account amendments up to CASA EX69/20 – EPC Requirements for ATOs Transitioning to the FER (Extensions of Time Due to COVID-19) – Exemption Amendment Instrument 2020 (No. 1)as amended and in force on 22 April 2020.

Prepared by the Advisory and Drafting Branch, Legal, International & Regulatory Affairs Division, Civil Aviation Safety Authority, Canberra.

Compilation No. 1.

1          Name

                 This instrument is CASA EX70/18 – EPC requirements for ATOs transitioning to the FER – Exemption 2018.

2          Duration

                 This instrument:

(a)   commences on 1 September 2018; and

(b)   is repealed at the end of 30 November 2020.

3          Definitions

        (1)     In this instrument:

ATO delegation holder means a person who, as an approved testing officer, was a delegate of CASA under an instrument of delegation that expires at the end of 31 August 2018.

CASR means the Civil Aviation Safety Regulations 1998.

EPC means an examiner proficiency check.

FER holder means the holder of a flight examiner rating granted by CASA under subregulation 202.272 (2) of CASR to an ATO delegation holder.

        (2)     Subject to subsection (1), in this instrument words and phrases have the same meaning as in Part 61 of CASR, unless the contrary intention appears.

        (3)     In this instrument, a numerical reference to a provision that includes the number 61 is a reference to the provision as contained in Part 61 of CASR.

4          Application

        (1)     This instrument applies to an FER holder (a relevant FER holder) who is granted an FER that takes effect on 1 September 2018.

Note   The effect of subsection 4 (1) is that the instrument also applies to a small number of former ATO delegation holders who had been granted an earlier FER but for a set of privileges different from those which they were still exercising under their retained ATO delegation. For the retained ATO privileges, they will be granted an FER to take effect on 1 September 2018.

        (2)     This instrument does not apply to a relevant FER holder who, in the 2 years immediately before 1 September 2018, successfully completed an EPC.

Note   For relevant FER holders who completed an EPC during the 2 years before 1 September 2018, the requirements of regulation 61.1285 apply to ensure that the requisite frequency cycle of EPCs set in motion at that time is maintained for the FER holder.

5          Exemptions

                 Each relevant FER holder is exempted from subregulation 61.1285 (2), but only to the extent that a valid EPC is one the holder has to have during the period referred to in:

(a)   paragraph 61.1285 (2) (a); or

(b)   paragraph 61.1285 (2) (b); or

(c)   paragraph 61.1285 (2) (c); or

(d)   paragraph 61.1285 (2) (d).

6          Condition on exemptions

                 Each exemption of a relevant FER holder mentioned in section 5 is subject to the condition that the holder must complete an EPC in accordance with Schedule 1.

Schedule 1          Timetable for completion of EPC

          1     Subject to clause 2, for a relevant FER holder whose birthday occurs during a month mentioned in a row of column 1 of the Table, the holder must complete an EPC by:
