Download as PDF 60140 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 216 / Thursday, November 7, 2019 / Notices New FAA Protocol Rationale for Considering ITDM Applicants Seeking To Exercise HigherRated Pilot Privileges After extensive deliberation and careful consideration, the FAA has developed a new FAA ITDM protocol to allow special issuance, based on CGM technology, for any class of medical certificate for ITDM individuals who meet specific criteria. As discussed, several factors contributed to the FAA’s decision to develop a new ITDM protocol: Input from the expert medical community; years of experience with private pilots being special-issued for ITDM; the 2015 CAMI study validating safety; the experience of other CAAs with no adverse impact on flight safety; medical advances in the treatment of diabetes; and maturation of CGM technology. Individuals with ITDM seeking to exercise airline transport or commercial pilot privileges may submit an application via MedXpress for medical review and consideration. CGM use will be implemented for first- or secondclass special issuance medical certification for ITDM applicants. As with all cases the FAA reviews, an authorization for special issuance will be based on a favorable determination that safety of flight can be maintained. Also, applicants for third-class special issuance may apply under the existing protocol or the new CGM-based protocol. Interested applicants should work with their Aviation Medical Examiner, appropriate medical specialists (endocrinologist, cardiologist, ophthalmologist, etc.), and the FAA to coordinate submission of the appropriate documentation needed for consideration. For consideration, potential applicants will need to demonstrate stability and adequate control of ITDM using CGM technology for a minimum of at least 6 months. In keeping with 14 CFR 67.413 requirements to provide the FAA with medical history to ensure appropriate fitness for flight, applicants applying for the new protocol must be able to provide the following: (1) Initial comprehensive report from the treating, board-certified endocrinologist (2) Initial comprehensive laboratory panel (3) Finger-Stick Blood Sugar (FSBS) glucose monitoring data (4) Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) data for at least the preceding 6-month period (using a device legally marketed in the United States in accordance with VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:55 Nov 06, 2019 Jkt 250001 Food and Drug Administration requirements and containing protocol-specific features needed for appropriate in-flight monitoring.). (5) Excel spreadsheet or similar that identifies CGM data for all flights for the past 6 months and any actions taken to address low or high glucose levels. (6) Eye evaluation (from a board certified ophthalmologist) (7) Cardiac risk evaluation (from a board certified cardiologist) For more information, applicants interested in applying for an ITDM special issuance should consult the specific ITDM protocols, including CGM features needed for proper in-flight monitoring, by searching ‘‘ITDM’’ in the Guide for Aviation Medical Examiners at: www.faa.gov/go/ITDM. Individuals who may have submitted an application to the FAA in advance of this announcement will be contacted if further information is needed to process their submission. This notice is not legally binding in its own right and will not be relied on by FAA as a separate basis for affirmative enforcement action or other administrative penalty. Unless otherwise required by statute or regulation, conformity with the new protocol described here is voluntary only. Nonconformity will not affect rights or obligations under existing statutes and regulations. Inviting Comments The FAA is requesting comments on the new ITDM protocol described herein. The agency will consider comments received on or before January 6, 2020. The new ITDM protocol may be revised based on comments received. Issued in Washington, DC, on October 30, 2019. Michael A. Berry, Federal Air Surgeon.
