Title: SARI Part - 145

SARI Part - 145
  • Role , Responsibility and achievements of SARI
    145 Working Group

What is SARI?
  • South Asian Regional Initiative ( SARI)
  • Group of authorities from South Asia, Bangladesh,
    Bhutan, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri
    Lanka, that was created during the EU-South Asia
    Civil Aviation Cooperation Program that ended in
  • EASA and the European Aerospace Industry have
    provided support to the SARI activities.
  • Considered by COSCAP-SA as its technical arm in
    its objective to harmonise the regulations in SA.

Objective of SARI
  • To create a forum for the Civil Aviation
    Authorities to foster regulatory convergence in
    South Asia.

Benefits of SARI?
  • To eliminate duplication of effort when
    developing a new regulation
  • Ensuring a common understanding or the regulation
    among the region
  • Preventing the development of marginal
    interpretation locally
  • Pooling of human and financial resources for
    regulation development and implementation.
  • Ultimately to reduce burden on aviation industry
    and its operational cost

SARI Part145 development process
  • The SARI partners agreed in 2007 to work on
    harmonisation of maintenance regulations in South
    Asia and in priority on the development of a
    harmonised Maintenance Organisation Approval
  • As JAR 145 or EASA Part 145 had already been
    adopted / adapted by several SA countries, It was
    agreed to use EASA Part 145 as a reference (EASA
    Part 145 including ED n0 2009/007/R on fuel tank

SARI Part145 development process
  • A working group (WG) formed among the SARI member
    States to draft SARI Part 145 in 2008.
  • Working Group consists of a coordinator and
  • The outcomes of WG are reported to the SARI
    steering Committee meetings for endorsement as
    well as to COSCAP SA.

SARI Part145 development process
  • Two Targets
  • Education process on harmonisation concept (Pilot
    Project for future regulatory convergence)
  • Development of one regulation acceptable to the
    SARI members (with the ultimate objective of
    mutual recognition of approval).

SARI 145 Working Group - Structure
  • The Working Group (WG) involves representatives
    from CAA and aviation industry of SARI member
  • The WG members are limited to a maximum of 4 from
    each SARI country, including the Industry
  • Currently the WG includes India, Pakistan,
    Maldives and Sri Lanka.
  • SARI 145 WG included, on top of the SA members,
    advisers from Europe (EASA contracted UK CAA
    Int'l to support the WG on their behalf).

SARI 145 Working Group Pre-requisite
  • To become a SARI 145 Working Group member the
    SARI Member States should have
  • - Demonstrated a good understanding of EASA Part
    145 concepts.
  • - Shown strong commitment to make the necessary
    changes to harmonise their regulation.
  • - Identified the main differences between their
    current applicable regulation and EASA Part 145.
  • - Nominated Working Group members from the
    Authority and from the local aviation industry.

SARI 145 Basis and Progress
  • It was agreed
  • 1) to be as closed as possible to EASA Part 145.
  • 2) that the 4 countries will not be able to
    achieve full harmonisation simultaneously in
    particular given the existing local maintenance
    licensing regulations.
  • 3) that the first SARI Part 145 draft may
    include National Variants.
  • 4) these National Variants would be
    progressively removed depending on the progress
    of the harmonisation process.

SARI 145 Basis and Progress
  • SARI 145 WG activities started after the 18th
    COSCAP-SA Steering Committee meeting.

    conducted through e-mail.

    12 January 2010.

SARI 145 Basis and Progress
