c.Deemed unfit to carry out maintenance on any aircraft or aeronautical product, component or part.
Following on from WOFF Knights’ AFCAMAN Brief and discussion surrounding the intent of this sub-paragraph, I'd like to suggest that the wording is made clearer. The intent is DASA is informed for serious issues surrounding a member’s fitness to perform aircraft maintenance.
WOFF Knight suggested that DASA does NOT need to be informed if withdrawal of authorisation is for non-serious reasons. For example, a member has a new baby at home and fatigue is an issue, so the SQN withdraws authorisation for a defined period of time. Or the withdrawal is for other similar administrative reasons.
As it stands, the current wording does not appear to give maintenance organisations any discretion.
