CAAS Singapore establish new aviation maintenance arrangement with CAB Japan

Home Articles CAAS Singapore establish new aviation maintenance arrangement with CAB Japan


New arrangement with JCAB further expands CAAS’s international partnerships
to support aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul industry

The Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) and the Civil Aviation Bureau of Japan (JCAB) have concluded a Technical Arrangement on Aviation Maintenance (TA-M). The TA-M facilitates the reciprocal acceptance of approvals pertaining to the maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) of aircraft components between CAAS and JCAB.

2    CAAS has established similar arrangements with Australia’s Civil Aviation Safety Authority, the Civil Aviation Administration of China, Hong Kong China’s Civil Aviation Department, Transport Canada – Civil Aviation, and the US Federal Aviation Administration. CAAS also signed a Memorandum of Understanding on aviation safety with the Civil Aviation Authority of New Zealand in 2019.

3    Mr Alan Foo, Director (Flight Standards), CAAS, said, “We are continuously expanding our collaboration with trusted partners like the JCAB to support our MRO industry. By establishing this arrangement with the JCAB, we will reduce the duplication of inspections and audits on MRO organisations in Singapore and Japan, which will help reduce regulatory compliance costs, while maintaining high safety standards.”

4    Mr KODA Toshihiro, Director (Airworthiness), JCAB, added, “I am very honored to conclude the TA-M between the JCAB and CAAS. Currently the JCAB has certified 13 maintenance facilities of aircraft components in Singapore. Under this TA-M, if these maintenance facilities and other candidates are certified by CAAS, they can be authorised by the JCAB without duplication of inspections. This arrangement will also further strengthen the relationship between the two authorities through the harmonised activities and will lead to continued improvement of the maintenance system for aircraft components. I wish that Japan and Singapore continue working together to enhance aviation safety.”
