Suspected Unapproved Parts (SUPs) – ½ Day

Introduction –

Ensuring that parts installed on aircraft and their component parts meet applicable aviation regulatory requirements is the responsibility of every Repair Station. Suspected Unapproved Parts (SUPs) is a very real problem that threatens the supply chain of many aviation organisations.

SUPs cover a multitude of aspects such as parts lacking proper documentation; counterfeit parts; parts rejected during production because of defects; improperly maintained parts, etc.
Substantial progress has been made to reduce the number of unapproved parts being introduced into the aviation system, yet constant vigilance and training is paramount to ensure that the harm SUPs impose is addressed.

This course defines the SUPs policy of the FAA; provides procedures to identify SUPs; and outlines investigative techniques which satisfy safety and enforcement responsibilities.
