PO 00000 Frm 00090 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 28075 Background The FAA proposes prototyping a new process for the issuance of airworthiness directives (AD) for imported products where the State of Design Authority issued mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI). In the draft order we describe policies and procedures for developing streamlined ADs issued against imported products. This streamlining will allow publishing of the ADs in a more expeditious manner, thereby ensuring the continued safety of the flying public in a more timely fashion. This process will continue to follow all existing AD issuance processes to meet legal, economic, Administrative Procedure Act, and Federal Register requirements. Our Aircraft Certification Directorates will soon begin issuing individual ADs to prototype the streamlined process described in the draft order. Please note, in addition to the normal request for comments pertaining to the actual AD, we will request your comments, views, or arguments on the new process.
