PRELIMINARY NOTES
1 PREAMBLE
The following is applicable for operators under European operating regulations (JAR-OPS 3). The regulations require that all equipment installed on an aircraft in compliance with the Airworthiness code and the Operating Requirements must be operative. However, the regulations also permit the use of a Minimum Equipment List (MEL) where compliance with certain equipment requirements is not necessary in the interests of safety under all operating conditions. Experience has shown that with the various levels of redundancy designed into aircraft, operation of every system or installed component may not be necessary when the remaining operative equipment can provide an acceptable level of safety. The EASA Master Minimum Equipment List (MMEL) is developed by the Type Certificate Holder to improve aircraft utilization and thereby provide more convenient and economic air transportation for the public. The EASA MMEL includes those items of equipment related to airworthiness and operating requirements and other items of equipment which the Agency finds may be inoperative and yet maintain an acceptable level of safety by appropriate conditions and limitations; it does not contain obviously required items such as blades and rotors. The MMEL is the basis for development of individual operator's MELs which take into consideration the operator's particular aircraft equipment configuration and operational conditions. An operator's MEL may differ in format from the MMEL, but cannot be less restrictive than the MMEL. The individual operator's MEL, when approved permits operation of the aircraft with inoperative equipment. Equipment not required by the operation being conducted and equipment in excess of the requirements are included in the MEL with appropriate conditions and limitations. The MEL must not deviate from Airworthiness Directives or any other Mandatory Requirement. It is important to remember that all equipment related to the airworthiness and the operating requirements of the aircraft not listed on the MMEL must be operative. Suitable conditions and limitations in the form of placards, maintenance procedures, crew operating procedures and other restrictions as necessary are specified in the MEL to ensure that an acceptable level of safety is maintained. The MEL is intended to permit operation with inoperative items of equipment for a period of time until rectifications can be accomplished. It is important that rectifications be accomplished at the earliest opportunity. In order to maintain an acceptable level of safety and reliability the MMEL establishes limitations on the duration of and conditions for operation with inoperative equipment. Rectification Interval Extension, as prescribed in JARMMEL/MEL.081, has been taken into account in the development of this MMEL. Therefore operators, with the approval of their authority, may consider use of the referenced procedure as being within the scope of this MMEL. The MEL provides for release of the aircraft for flight with inoperative equipment. When an item of equipment is discovered to be inoperative, it is reported by making an entry in the Aircraft Maintenance Record/Logbook as prescribed by the applicable regulations. The item is then either rectified or may be deferred per the MEL or other approval means acceptable to the competent Authority prior to further operation. MEL conditions and limitations do not relieve the operator from determining that the aircraft is in a condition for safe operation with items of equipment inoperative.

MASTER MINIMUM EQUIPMENT LIST

When these requirements are met, an Airworthiness Release, Aircraft Maintenance Record/Logbook entry, or other approved documentation is issued as prescribed by the applicable regulations. Such documentation is required prior to operation with any item of equipment inoperative. Operators are responsible for exercising the necessary operational control to ensure that an acceptable level of safety is maintained. The exposure to additional failures during continued operation with inoperative systems or components must also be considered. Wherever, possible account has been taken in this MMEL of multiple inoperative items. However, it is unlikely that all possible combinations of this nature have been accounted for. Therefore, when operating with multiple inoperative items, the inter-relationships between those items and the effect on aircraft operation and crew workload must be considered. Operators are to establish a controlled and sound rectification program including the parts, personnel, facilities, procedures and schedules to ensure timely rectification. This program should identify the actions required for Maintenance discrepancy messages.

2 DEFINITION
Category A: (i) No standard interval is specified, however, items in this category shall be rectified in accordance with the conditions stated in the MMEL.

- (ii) Where a time period is specified (in calendar days) it shall start at 00:01 on the calendar day following the day of discovery. Category B: Items in this category shall be repaired within three (3) consecutive calendar days (72 hours), excluding the day the malfunction was discovered. Category C: Items in this category shall be repaired within ten (10) consecutive calendar days (240 hours), excluding the day the malfunction was discovered.

Category D: Items in this category shall be repaired within one hundred and twenty (120) consecutive calendar days, excluding the day the malfunction was discovered. NOTE As prescribed in JAR-MMEL/MEL.081 and subject to the approval of the Authority, the operator may use a procedure for the extension of the applicable rectification intervals B, C and D, for the same duration, as specified in its MEL. Rectification interval extension is prohibited for rectification intervals A.

. . Columns 3 NUMBER INSTALLED and 4 "NUMBER REQUIRED FOR FLIGHT" Symbol " - " indicates a variable quantity.

Column 5 REMARKS AND/OR EXCEPTIONS Symbol (O) indicates a requirement for an operational procedure accomplished by the crew. . Symbol (M) indicates a requirement for a maintenance procedure. Both these symbols used singly or together indicate a requirement for suitable procedures to be established ((O) Operational procedure or/and (M) Maintenance procedure), published and applied, should the flight be performed with inoperative equipment. Different conditions may be required for operations when they have a cumulative effect; they are indicated as follows: (a), (b), (c) . When they are exclusive, they are listed as follows: - or - or - . . . . . VFR: VMC: IFR: IMC: means flight performed according to visual flight rules. means flight performed according to visual meteorological conditions. means flight performed according to instrument flight rules. means flight performed according to instrument meteorological conditions.

Icing conditions means atmospheric conditions that may cause ice to form on the helicopter or in the engines. . As required means that the specific item of equipment may be required in accordance with the applicable operational regulation. Operators should refer to the JAR-OPS 3 MEL Policy document (Temporary Guidance Leaflet number 26) for suitable alleviations based upon the required equipment identified within JAR-OPS 3, subpart K and L (published in the JAA Administrative and Guidance, section four, Operations, part three). . Secured and/or isolated means that the specific component must be put into an acceptable condition for safe flight.

. "Visible moisture means an atmospheric environment containing water in any form that can be seen in natural or artificial light, for example clouds, fog, rain, sleet, hail or snow. . If installed means that the equipment is either optional or is not required to be installed on all aircraft covered by the MMEL.

- "PLACARDING": Each inoperative item must be placarded to inform and remind the crew members and maintenance personnel of the equipment condition. NOTE: To the extent practical, placards should be located adjacent to the control or indicator for the item affected; however, unless otherwise specified, placard wording and location will be determined by the operator.
