The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) recently published a web page that will list unresolved cases of suspected unapproved parts. According to a Safety Information Bulletin announcing the resource, the purpose of the page is to “raise awareness among European aviation industry of [suspected unapproved parts] that they might encounter.”
The web page includes confirmed cases and those under investigation. Suspected unapproved parts previously reported through the EASA Safety Publications Tool are not included in the compilation, but it is the agency’s intent to aggregate and centralize the information at some point in the future.
The database lists suspected unapproved part nomenclature and part and serial numbers. Cases are categorized as confirmed, “under investigation” and those involving stolen parts. Users may subscribe to receive unapproved parts notifications; the information is scheduled for quarterly revisions.
