What constitutes current technical data?
I know the question seems obvious, but here is the scenario:
I have a copy of a CMM from the OEM that is at Revision 14. When I check the OEM website I see that the latest CMM is Rev. 14, however there is mention that there is Temporary Revision (XX-YYY) to the manual.
Am I obligated to get the temporary revision to the manual, or can I wait until the next time the manual is fully released?
Thanks

Re: Technical Data

Hello Wolf,

When updating OEM manuals it's generally done on the basis of whether the update is relevant to your needs and controls. So it may be helpful to find out what that temporary change was about. Can you find out without buying the manual?

Do I have the leeway to assess the change?
145.109 states:
(d) A certificated repair station must maintain, in a format acceptable to the FAA, the documents and data required for the performance of maintenance, preventive maintenance, or alterations under its repair station certificate and operations specifications in accordance with part 43. The following documents and data must be current and accessible when the relevant work is being done:
(1) Airworthiness directives,
(2) Instructions for continued airworthiness,
(3) Maintenance manuals,
(4) Overhaul manuals,
(5) Standard practice manuals,
(6) Service bulletins, and
(7) Other applicable data acceptable to or approved by the FAA.

My concern is how current is current? I know we need the latest released copy, but do I need the TR's as well?
