EASA Regulatory Requirements for Electronics Contract Manufacturer

Hi,

I work for an electronics company that manufactures products to customer requirements. We are certified to AS9100C, excluding the design clause as we are a contract manufacturer. I have recently been approached with a question relating to our compliance with the requirements of the EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency).

My question is, as a contract manufacturer must we comply with the requirements of the EASA or indeed the CAA (Civil Aviation Authority), as we are based in the UK, or is this covered by our customers.

Thanks in advance,

If you're only a manufacturer and your customer is the design authority, I would guess that you do not need to comply with the EASA requirements for a production or design approval holder........or a certificated repair station.

Hi JoCam
You would only need EASA approval if you intended to release finished products into the aerospace supply chain. These are normally your own parts and not parts you are making on behalf of someone else. You would need to apply for a 'Production Organisation Approval' (POA) and be assessed to EASA Part 21 Subpart G. If you did want to go down this path, you should talk to CAA-UK or for some assistance, talk to their consulting arm CAAi.

Cheers,
