DOT/FAA RIN: 2120-AL13 Publication ID: Fall 2018 
Title: Alternative Methods of Compliance (AMOC) 

The FAA is proposing to revise its rules for airworthiness directives (AD) to expand who has the authority to approve an alternative method of compliance (AMOC). The current regulations limit this authority to the manager of the office identified in the AD. The proposed rule would reduce the number of AMOCs required to be approved by the FAA and would expedite certain AMOC approvals that do need FAA approval. The proposed rule would expand the authority to include any entity identified in the AD. The proposed rule would also remove a section that does not contain any requirements.
