Proposal that updates the rules of the Logbook enters public consultation

Resolution #457 of December 20, 2017, which regulates the administrative measures for the use of the Logbook (DB, in Brazil), is submitted to Public Consultation #11/2022, for a period of 45 days, from July 18 to 1 of September. The objective is to lead interested parties and society in general to discuss the proposal that seeks to establish proportionality and effectiveness to the sanctions applied for non-compliance with rules relating to filling out the Logbook. In the public consultation proposal, changes are suggested in the wording of the current rules, with the objective of simplifying the normative action of Brazil’s Civil Aviation Agency (ANAC, also in Portuguese), both through the removal of duplicities and repetitions of commands, as well as the exclusion of obligations that do not add value to the Logbook, or admit other means of compliance. In general, Resolution #457 applies to a multiplicity of regulated and professional entities, with administrative measures being applied indiscriminately, regardless of the criticality of registration in the Logbook. Today, the values ​​are the same for all regulated (operators, pilots in command, responsible for the records of maintenance actions) and without distinction by size or type of operation (private operations, Specialized Air Service, or transport under the Brazilian Aviation Regulations Civil #135 and #121). In addition to improving the current enforcement model established, the Agency’s objective is to incorporate alternative mechanisms to the regulation to encourage the adoption of a collaborative posture by the regulated and, at the same time, reinforce measures to constrain agents who, through the manipulation of records in the Logbook, for example, seek to reduce their aircraft maintenance costs. In order to arrive at the proposal now submitted for public consultation, a Regulatory Impact Analysis (AIR, in Portuguese) was carried out, detailing the topic within the scope of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and Brazilian regulations, in addition to identifying the problems arising from the current regulatory framework. To obtain additional information regarding the public consultation that updates the rules of the Logbook, the e-mail address gtno.spo@anac.gov.br was made available. – https://www.gov.br/anac/pt-br/noticias/2022/proposta-que-atualiza-normativo-do-diario-de-bordo-entra-em-consulta-publicaras
