Course overview

What are the changes to EASA Part 145?

Under Regulation (EU) 2021/1963, there are significant changes for Part 145 organisations such as the introduction of a Management System, Safety Management Systems (SMS) in accordance with ICAO Annex 19, occurrence reporting and the additional paragraphs in Part 145. EASA requires full compliance of SMS in Part 145 organisations by 2nd December 2024.

Course Overview

This course is designed for delegates who have previously attended the full EASA Part 145 course and now need to understand the differences introduced by Regulation (EU) 2021/1963 following the publication of this rule in November 2021 and which apply from December 2022.

Who should attend?

This course is ideal for individuals working in EASA Part 145 MROs or for the Continuing Airworthiness Management Organisations responsible for the maintenance management of aircraft types, and Orgs that hold a CAA Malaysia Approval for Maintenance.

Note, it is particularly suitable for the Safety or Compliance management teams of the CAMO with regard to the oversight of contracted organisations, where Hazards and Risks from the contracted organisation should feed into the CAMO SMS.

It is equally suitable for both commercial and non-commercial owners and operators.

Delegates should have previously attended an EASA Part 145 course in order to have the foundation for this one-day course.

Key topics

This training course will include the following topics:

  • Brief introduction to EASA and CAA Malaysia regulations
  • Airworthiness and Continuing Airworthiness concepts as introduced by Regulation (EU) 2021/1963
  • EASA and CAA Malaysia Part 145 overview
  • Compliance of SMS in Part 145 orgs – EASA Information Letter dated 21/June/2022: Implementation of Safety Management System in Part-145 Maintenance Organisations in accordance with Regulation (EU) 2021/1963.
  • EASA GUIDE FOR COMPLIANCE WITH PART-145 AS AMENDED BY Regulation (EU) 2021/1963 (Revision June 2022)
  • An awareness of how the UK CAA is introducing SMS into UK Part 145 organisations.

Course objectives

By the end of this course, delegates will demonstrate understanding of the following:

  • Broad understanding of EASA 145 and the latest updates including the new EU Rules
  • CAA Malaysia CAD 8601 and CAGM 8601 – CAAM Part 145

Prerequisites and Preparation

Delegates should have experience in Continuing Airworthiness or Maintenance Management. Preferably, delegates should have attended a full Part 145 regulation training course prior to attending this course.

Delegates should review the new Regulation (EU) 2021/1963, Part 145 course notes/handouts and preferably bring them for reference and guidance. A review of CAA Malaysia Part 145 as contained in CAD 8601 and CAGM 8601 would be advantageous.
