Examiner Brief

In accordance with Commission Regulation (EU) No 1178/2011 and Commission Regulation (EU) 290/2012, both amended by Commission Regulation (EU) No 245/2014, EASA has published a document named Examiner Differences Document. In this document you will find the administrative procedures that examiners must comply with. The procedures are related to amendments to FCL.1015, FCL.1030 and the new ARA.FCL.210 requirements. The Examiner Differences Document is a common document valid for all Member States.

The main changes from previous procedures is that you as an examiner now have to declare that you have reviewed and applied the relevant national procedures and requirements of the applicant’s competent authority contained in the Examiner Differences Document. This procedure is in accordance with FCL.1030(b)(3)(iv). All test and check forms published by CAA Norway contains a field for declaration. 

The Examiner Differences Document is published on the EASA website.

The document will be updated on a 3-month revision schedule, unless the situation dictates otherwise.
