Welcome once again my faithful students. Look at your calendar. Do you know what this means? Now look in the lower left hand corner of the form. If you are using you have been keeping up to date and have read the latest best seller from the FAA: Although this page-turner is written in typical FAA prose, it is formm must-read, and more importantly, a must-comply if you want foem avoid an 813-3 confrontation with your local FAA Inspector.
I see a surprised look on some of your faces. Okay, stick with me because we can fix this and get you back on the straight and narrow. First, fire up your computer and go to the World Wide Web using this link: As I forn gone through considerable research on Order H, let me share what I have come up with.
So that we have a complete understanding of thewe will go through a short history of the before we go through the changes to the new form. Thus, when you finish with our lesson today you will have a better understanding of the form itself. Okay foorm we go. It also serves as approval for return to service after maintenance or alteration 813-03 an authorized part repair station, or a U.
So as you can see Form clearly has two distinct purposes: We would then call the local FAA or a DAR with whom we had established a relationship, and ask them to issue the certificate for the part s. We then placed the certificate with the part and shipped it to the foreign customer. That procedure remains the same today. However about 20 years ago or so the form was changed immensely to accommodate its new purpose, which is an approval of a product for return to service after maintenance.
The thought behind this was that if implemented correctly, the form would serve the same purpose of the JAA Form 1. The idea was to give the new FAA form the same look and feel as the JAA form, thus creating an atmosphere of accord, between the FAA and the JAA, because the JAA Form 1 was the primary means of communicating the airworthiness status of parts within the European Community — and so began the reinvention of the form.

81303- I am sure that the FAA was really proud of their changes to the old form, because now this was truly 81300-3 dual-purpose form.
The new would not only be 88130-3 to certify exported parts, it would also meet the 14 CFR Part 43 requirements for approval for return to service following maintenance, creating for the first time in the US a common approval for return to service form tag other than the Yellow Tag and the FAA Form Of course, the form could only be used for major repairs and major alterations. Good job guys; one dual-purpose form.
However, it is the intended multiple utility of the new tag that caused some confusion. The same form could now be used for two purposes.
But neither of the two uses of the form could be performed or certified by the same person. The Export Certificate of Airworthiness or conformity certification was is still required to be completed by the FAA or a designee 810-3 the approval for return to service could be done by a repair station or properly certificated air carrier.
Here is a possible scenario. The part is on the shelf and very clearly displays an FAA form airworthiness approval tag. Next, we receive a request for that part from a company in France. Looking at the inventory on the computer, we tell the customer that indeed we have one in stock and can ship it today.
We assure him that the part does come with an airworthiness approval tag. Ofrm then asks us to ship the part and, not only does it arrive in France without the correct Export Certificate of Airworthiness, but we have now added to international tensions.
The bottom line is that the has 8130-33 become the end-all form. We must know why we need an Is it for the purpose of exporting a part, or is it only for the purpose of assuring that we are not getting a part fotm is unapproved?
Beginning Feb, form has been officially replaced with form Why the revised form? EASA became fully functional in This was to once again bring the two Aviation Regulatory Agencies more in harmony with regards to regulations. Fodm the sake of expediency and spacelisted below are the changes, block-by-block, needed to complete a maintenance release I suggest you look up Order H if you need information on how to use this form for its other purposes.
Refer to the two forms which I have provided for ease of explanation see graphics. Okay, the first thing to remember is: Authorized Release Certificate No Change. Form Tracking Number Depending on your work order software, this number may be ofrm assigned. If not, you need to establish a numbering system that is separate from your work order system.
Organization Name and Address The organization name, address and pertinent company information you wish to put in this block.
This is a change in clarification for the information in Block 5. Item When the is issued a single item number or multiple item numbers for example, same item with different serial numbers may be used for the same part number. Multiple items must be numbered in sequence. Description Enter the name or description of the product or article.
You should use the term or name used in the instructions for continued airworthiness or maintenance data. Part Number Enter each part number or the product or article.
In the case of an aircraft engine or propeller, the model designation may be used. Enter the quantity of each product or article shipped. Enter serial number of the Part. The following table describes what to enter in a specific situation.
The Term entered in Block 11 should reflect the majority of the work performed by the organization.
FAA Form -vs- Certificate of Conformity
See graphic on page Describe the work identified in Block 11 and associated results necessary for the user or installer to determine the airworthiness of the product or article in relation to the work being certified.
This can be done either directly or by reference to supporting documentation.
If necessary, a separate sheet may be used and referenced from the main FAA Form Each statement must clearly identify which product or article in Block 6 it relates to. The following are examples of conditions that could necessitate a statement in this block: If the certificate holder to comply with Part Total Time; Total Cycles; time since new g If a specific batch or lot number is used to control or trace the product or article, enter the batch or lot number in this block.
However, care must be taken to check the relevant box es in Block 14a to validate the release. When the is used as a maintenance release instrument these blocks are shaded or marked out to preclude inadvertent or unauthorized use. Block 14a must be checked in both boxes. Block 14b is the authorized signature, and it must be manually applied at the time and place of issuance except as provided in paragraph j of Order H. Block 14c Enter your repair station, PAH or air carrier number.
Block 14d The typed or printed name of the authorized signatory Block 14e The Date The change here is the format. This is the date on which the original work was completed and must be in the following format: The use of slashes, hyphens or spaces in the date does not matter. Okay, you were in a hurry and sent the form with the part to a customer and he lets you know that there was a typo.
What do you do? First the recipient of the incorrect form must request replacement in writing and return the incorrect form to you. You do not need to verify the serviceability of the article again.
FAA Form 8130-3 -vs- Certificate of Conformity
formm A corrected form may be honoured without re-verification of the article. The reissued is not a statement of current condition of the article and must reference the being corrected. In block 12 the following statement will be entered: If a copy of an is requested, correlation must be established between the form and the applicable article. As the originator you must retain a copy of each form issued to allow verification of the original data. And, there is no restriction on the number of copies sent to the customer or retained by the originator.
Obviously there are a few other things to be aware of in this minefield. First, know what the form can and is used for. Look through it and fork it handy if you are in the parts side frm the business so that you can refer to it. Next, review the 1830-3. Look at each Those on the right must be that of an FAA repair station or an air carrier in certain cases.
And finally, if a repair station or air carrier has signed the right side, be sure they hold the appropriate ratings for the maintenance for which they are signing. In this case, the certification is for the benefit of dorm receiver of the part repair station more than the owner of the repaired aircraft, and a copy should be kept with the original purchase order.
An FAA Form received from a repair station as approval for return to service with the part should first be scrutinized to ensure the repair station is authorized to sign for the approval for return to service, then the airworthiness approval tag should become a part of the aircraft permanent records as required by 14 CFR Part And there you have it, my faithful students: I would go to the FAA website http: Now go forth, confident that you will not be intimidated by the new form.
