Please Help! Writing a QMS Manual for our FAA 145 Repair Station

I am trying to write a QMS Manual for our 145 repair station. It sure would be helpful if I could see another companies manual but I can't find one anywhere. Why is this so closely guarded? Does anyone know of a QMS I could view on line so I can see if I am even headed in the right direction?

Welcome to the Cove. There aren't many companies that post their quality manuals online, but I don't think it's due to confidentiality concerns; it's more because there isn't much of a good reason for posting them. Perhaps someone here has something to share that's directly relevant to your situation, but in the meantime, go up to the top of the page where you'll see this:



and click on "Post Attachments List" and you'll be able to search for examples of quality manuals that have been posted here.

Re: Why is this whole ISO thing so secret?

This is a posted sample of a Quality Manual:

Example of a Quality Manual

It was designed using Santa Claus as the context, but still to me looks like a nicely designed manual

Re: Writing a QMS Manual for our FAA 145 Repair Station

There are *lots* of example quality manuals here: Example Quality Manuals

But none that I noticed that is specific to an FAA Certified 145 Repair Station. It would be nice if someone has one which can be shared here.

Re: Writing a QMS Manual for our FAA 145 Repair Station

Are you wanting to have a QMS manual separate from your FAA approved repair station manual? I can't speak for the majority of repair stations but ours merge the two documents. That being the case, you won't find ours floating around publicly because it contains some very specific (and potentially proprietary) information about the organization. At the end of the day, the FSDO needs to approve what you produce so I would seek their advice.

I have heard that the ARSA model is a good option.

<snip> I have heard that the ARSA model is a good option.

http://www.arsa.org/node/484
At these prices for a set of templates, they must really be something "special"...

"Disclaimer

These documents are not all-inclusive; each repair station is unique. Modifications to this model manual and Forms Manual will be required to ensure the specific procedures and forms used by the repair station will comply with the regulations. Further, the model manual does not address satellite repair stations. If your company wishes to develop a managerial repair station with satellites, please contact ARSA for assistance in modifying this document to meet those requirements.

Pricing Information

Model Repair Station and Quality Manual with integrated Forms Manual is available to Members for $750 and Non-Members for $1500.

The Forms Manual is available free of charge to Members ONLY. It is available to Non-Members for $500.

The revised Model Repair Station and Quality Manual and Forms Manual is available to Members who purchased the model manual before September 1, 2007, free of charge, and to Non-Members who have previously purchased the manual for $1,000.

NOTE: You may order your complimentary copy of the model manual using the publication order form. Please take care to use the exact same company name so that verification your previous purchase can be made, and note in the “Remarks/Comments” field that you are requesting a complimentary copy based on a previous purchase. Complimentary copies will be issued via e-mail upon verification of prior purchase."


If anyone has a manual and/or forms as an example that can be used as a template (which the above is), contact me by PM. I'll pay up to US$750 for it (I'll up the ante for the forms) and post it (them) here for free.
