Applicable Aircraft Integrated Vehicle Health Management (IVHM) Regulations, Policy, and Guidance
This AIR lists and describes a collection of regulations, policy, and guidance documents applicable to design approval applicants, aircraft operating certificate holders, and maintenance repair and overhaul (MRO) organizations. The aircraft industry should consider these rules when installing IVHM technology for use in aircraft maintenance. This is a starting basis and should not be considered as complete when certification of an IVHM system is expected. The AIR’s objectives are:
To set the foundation for aircraft certification applicants seeking to design IVHM solutions as part of the type certificate (TC), supplemental type certificate (STC), amended TC, or amended STC activities; and
To set the foundation for aircraft operating certificate holders to engage with regulators to get authorization for using IVHM applications as part of an aircraft maintenance program.
NOTE: This AIR’s scope is limited to the United States (U.S.) Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) information only in this version, but future revisions intend to include other regulator input.
There is a need to bridge the gap between the evolving capabilities of IVHM technology and the application of this technology in the aircraft industry. Several contributing factors to this gap include the required levels of IVHM airborne and ground hardware and software certification, and changes to an aircraft operator’s maintenance program within the existing set of regulations, policy, and guidance. This document provides a list of regulations, policy, guidance, and operations specifications (OpSpecs) which IVHM certification applicants and the intended end users can use when conducting airworthiness certification and operational authorization activities.
