FAA's Building Block approach to certification

Hi All

I came across the FAA's building block approach to certification, sometimes referred to as a test pyramid. I've only noticed this approach in the FAA documents for composite aircraft structures. Can this approach be applied to other areas of the aircraft, say engine components. The reason for asking is would this approach be applicable for the qualification of metal additive manufacturing and certification of parts manufactured via this process?
