Dear P&CA TeB members, observers and alternates,
 
Please see below communication for your information and further distribution.
 
It has come to the attention of the Agency that some UK industry approached Part-145 approved maintenance organisations in order to request confirmation of how they intent to the release maintenance to UK registered aircraft in a no deal Brexit scenario. One of the offered options is that the organisation would release the maintenance using the EASA Part-145 approval number.
 
Please note that, after the Brexit, a UK registered aircraft is to be considered a third country aircraft. As already clarified in our policy issued in March 2013 (attached) all Member States (MSs) are reminded that a release certificate referring to 145.A.50 issued by a Part-145 approved maintenance organisation to a third country registered aircraft is outside the privileges granted by the Part-145 and is not a legally valid release. As some Part-145 approved maintenance organisations may intent to use this practice, the Agency requests the Member States to anticipate this risk by disseminating this information and the attached policy.
 
Please be aware that the attached policy also includes accepted practices on how a maintenance organisation can provide support to clients outside the EU perimeter.
 
For Standardisation purposes, the Agency recommends to use the EASA guidance to foreign maintenance organisations ref UG CAO 00134 which offers two acceptable solutions to practice 3. https://www.easa.europa.eu/sites/default/files/dfu/UG.CAO_.00134-004%20Aircraft%20Maintenance.pdf
