About the Course:
This 14 hours course will discuss in general terms the legal and regulatory system, as defined through (EU) 2018/1139, and in detail (EU) 748/2012.

Annexed to Commission Regulation (EU) No 748/2012 is Annex I (Part 21). EASA Part 21 Subpart J details the elements required of a design organisation in order to hold an EASA Design Organisation Approval (DOA). EASA grants privileges for the DOA to design new products, product modifications or repairs and may include approval for these designs.

Who Should Attend?
Personnel involved in design engineering having Design Organisation Approval (DOA) or considering to apply for such an approval. It is also applicable and valuable to the management and its staff of such organisations, e.g. Head of Design Organisation, Chief of Office of Airworthiness, Chief of Independent System Monitoring, Compliance Verification Engineer, Certification Manager, Quality Manager, as well as Office of Airworthiness and Engineering staff.

Regulators or Aviation Authorities who are interested to be familiar with EASA DOA system or intend to implement such system in their country and/or who consider applying for an EASA DOA in support of a STC / minor change / repair approval.

Course Content:
Regulations and requirements for Design Organisation Approval (DOA) according to EASA Part 21 Subpart J. The content of the training course includes several examples of different EASA DOA to promote learning and gain practical knowledge. An in-depth view will be given on the classification of changes and repairs, which will be explained, and under which conditions these changes are approved under the privilege of the DOA approval or EASA.
