    Part-66 and AMC/GM rev. May 2012 Dear Reader

    Dear Reader,You are finding before you the third printed Technical Publication of the Agency, the Part-66 consolidated rules. The format and layout is similar to the previous Technical Publications, Part-M and Part-145. The handbook starts with the newest amendment of Regulation (EC) No. 2042/2003, and is followed by Annex III of this regulation, Part-66. The related Acceptable Means of Compliance and Guidance Material have been included behind the respective Implementing Rules paragraphs also for this version. Again, a CD with the bookmarked and cross-referenced PDF of the handbook, as well as with the applicable Word forms, has been attached.

    The next Technical Publications include updated versions of Part-M and Part-145. A probable new publication will be situated in the area of Flight Standards. It will most likely be in an electronic format. In this way, the Technical Publications service also seeks to respond to the varying needs of the different stakeholders.
