Modernizing fees for Aeronautical Product Approvals

CLOSED: This consultation mechanism is closed; However if you have comments on the Aeronautical Product Approvals Fee Modernization Proposal, please send them to CARRAC@tc.gc.ca.

Canada’s transportation sector relies on, and benefits from, services provided by Transport Canada. We are proposing changes to fees for aeronautical product design approvals, and we want your feedback.

We ensure aeronautical products approved for use in Canada conform to national design standards. In Canada, more than 1,500 new and modified aeronautical product designs are approved each year.

Section 4.4 of the Aeronautics Act allows us to charge fees for these approvals. You can find a list of the current fees in section 104, Schedule V of the Canadian Aviation Regulations (CAR 104).

We are proposing changes to CAR 104, Schedule V. They include:

  • changing fees to better reflect the cost of providing services to approve aeronautical product designs. These range from designs for aircrafts or engines to the installation of Wi-Fi antennas;
  • removing the hard caps on hourly fees;
  • converting fixed fees to hybrid fees; and
  • introducing a range of new fees related to product certification, as described in the Fee Modernization Proposal.

We want to hear from you:

  1. Read the Aeronautical Product Approvals Fee Modernization Proposal in the right hand menu to learn more about our proposed changes to CARs 104, Schedule V.

    We’re proposing to convert all fixed fees to new, hybrid fees. Hybrid fees would begin as fixed fees, until a pre-established level of effort threshold (calculated in hours) is reached, after which the service would be billed at an hourly rate.

    Consider how many specialist hours Transport Canada should spend on a project before we charge on an hourly basis. Also think about whether the level of effort threshold should be different depending on the service.

    We’re proposing fees for activities such as post-certification design changes that affect design approval documents. The proposed fees would be hybrid fees.
