Aircraft used by airlines and aircraft whose airworthiness management tasks are performed at an approved CAMO may be certificated by the airline itself or by the CAMO organization under the conditions of the exemption. In both cases, the certificate is valid for 6 months.
The general exemption was adopted in accordance with the 2018 July 4 European Parliament and Council Regulation (EU) No. 2018/1139 by paragraph 1 of Article 71. Exemption does not apply to Experimental Category aircraft.
The exemption conditions are prepared according to the recommendations of the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) .
