The Australian Transport Safety Bureau recommends that the

It is believed that the intent of the recommendation was achieved by work which culminated in the 9th Edition (Amendment 98) to Annex 8 -Airworthiness of Aircraft which became applicable on 2 March 2004. The changes to Annex 8 included restructuring Part II into four chapters, namely, Type Certificate, Production. Certificate of Airworthiness and Continuing Airworthiness with the intent of assisting States to understand their responsibilities. ICAO Standards in these areas are high level and do not prescribe the process or means by which a State complies with the Standards, however, more detailed guidance material has been included in these areas in the revised Airworthiness Manual (Doc 9760).
