The FAA’'s Continuous Airworthiness Maintenance Division, AFS-300, and the Production and Airworthiness Division, AIR-200, will jointly monitor the effectiveness of this program by participating with and/or conducting assessments of the accrediting organizations and distributors on a periodic basis as deemed necessary by the FAA. When a new Quality Systems Standards is added, the Accreditation Organization will notify the FAA prior to performing the first five audits, and the FAA may at their option accompany the auditor on these audits. Point of contact is AFS-300.
