No. 177
PROPOSED CIVIL AVIATION TECHNICAL STANDARDS
NAM-CATS-GMR "GENERAL MAINTENANCE RULES"

The Ministry of Works, Transport and Communication recently initiated the project to
update the current Namibian aviation legislation. There are two main reasons for updating
the aviation legislation, namely, the current legislation does not adequately reflect the
policies of Namibia for the aviation sector and does not reflect recent developments
within SADC. The project further aims to enhance the safety of civil aviation by ensuring
that the Namibian legislation complies with the minimum standards prescribed by the
International Civil Aviation Organization.
In this regard the legislative reform process involves the updating of the regulations
made under the Aviation Act (Act No. 74 of 1962). It also involves the issuing Technical
Standards by the Director of Civil Aviation.
The Technical Standard proposed in this General Notice is one of thirty four (34) technical
standards associated with the Namibian Civil Aviation Regulations, 2001.
