Incoming Goods Inspection
The EASA Part-145 Stores Management and Incoming Goods Inspection System is an essential element of the Part-145 approval. It must be managed and staffed by trained and competent staff. This training is designed to cover all elements which are essential to the effective management and operation of a fully compliant Inspection Process.
A well implemented incoming goods inspection training is essential to comply with the aviation regulations and to avoid the installation of incorrect or unairworthy parts or components in the aircraft. In this course we will look at the regulatory background, the internal procedures and the practical implementation of the inspection and acceptance process for parts, materials and components in an aircraft maintenance organisation.
In this course we will discuss the requirements related to the acceptance of equipment and material into a Part-145 environment. The incoming goods inspection is the first safety net after the purchase of the parts or materials have been accomplished. A proper incoming goods inspection process will guarantee that unapproved or bogus parts or parts that do not meet the purchase or design criteria will enter into the Part-145 organisation.
With this course the participants will understand the intention of the legal requirements and processes related to the acceptance of components and parts into a Part-145 organisation.
With this course you will become able to understand Airworthiness and Certification principles necessary for receiving parts. Also, the course enables students to review the problems associated with the organisation of the stores. The training addresses how to increase the overall logistics effectiveness of the production and maintenance organisations.
