Accreditation and Recognition

In accordance with 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. Below you will find the list of TAA-Approved CAF Engineering Organizations, as well as that of industry organizations currently approved (accredited or recognized) by the TAA.

DTAES 4 staff carries out the audits leading to the accreditation and recognition of DND military and contracted organizations.
