Air Transport - Avionics Service Bulletin (AT-ASB) Working Group. Meeting held September 17-19, 2019, in Pendik/Istanbul, Turkey.

The AMC Steering Committee initiated a working group on Vendor Service Bulletins (VSBs) to provide industry guidance to supplement ATA standards and airframe requirements, addressing gaps and vague areas to move suppliers/vendors and airframers toward a common standard for format and wording in VSBs for Air Transport components.

The group completed several objectives for the AT-ASB work. These include accomplishing the following: 

  • Defining terms to use and not use within a VSB.
  • Reason Statement: What is the correct information to be included?
  • VSB Pricing: What are the requirements from ATA and airframers?
  • Information on level one supplier and sub-tiers.
  • Information on chemical and consumable.

The next AT-ASB Harmonization Working Group meeting is tentatively set for January 28-30, 2020, in Renton, Washington.

More information will be available on the AT-ASB Webpage.
