Technical airworthiness accreditation and recognition

Under the DND/CF Airworthiness Program (NDID number A-GA-005-000/AG-001), all organizations conducting maintenance on CAF-registered aircraft, whether military or civilian, must be accredited by the Technical Airworthiness Authority (TAA). Certain organizations may obtain the TAA’s recognition even without formal accreditation, when the respective organization has been approved by another regulator.

On behalf of the TAA, the DTAES 4 staff carries out the audits leading to the accreditation and recognition of DND military and civilian contracted organizations, whose TAA-authorized representatives are listed below, by type of organization (DND/CAF Maintenance or Engineering Organizations, and Acceptable Industry Organizations) and by fleet:
