Domestic Airworthiness Approval of New Products, Parts and Appliances Last Updated: 04/10/2008
When used as Domestic Airworthiness Approval of New Products, Parts and Appliances the 8130 will certify that a component is in new condition, is traceable to the manufacturer and is airworthy. This type of 8130 must be signed by an FAA-DAR in block 15. This type of 8130 cannot be signed by an FAA Repair Station Certificated under Part 145 unless that repair station has an FAA-DAR on staff. Most repair stations do not have an FAA-DAR on staff. Therefore most repair stations will have to pay an independent FAA-DAR to travel to their facility in order to accomplish the inspection and sign the 8130. As an alternative the repair station will have to transport the item to be certified, along with all supporting documentation, to the nearest FSDO Office in order to have the unit inspected and the 8130 issued.
It is important to note that this document is very rarely needed. When you purchase a new unit the manufacturer’s invoice and/or certificate of conformance serve the same purpose as this document. The FAA looks for traceability on a new product and the manufacturer’s documentation will serve that purpose.
