  • Fees & Charges
    • 1. Fees for initial approval (To)
    • (1) Fees for initial approval (To) are the summation of application acceptance fee (A), on site audit fee (C) and supplementary fee (S).
    • (2) Application acceptance fee (A) is calculated per standard man-hour multiplied by man-hour fee.
    • (3) On site audit fee (C) is calculated per standard man-hour multiplied by man-hour fee.
    • (4) Standard man-hour equals benchmark man-hour multiplied by weighting coefficient.
    • Benchmark man-hour (H) is classified into two categories: application acceptance benchmark man-hour (Ha) and maintenance function benchmark man-hour (Hc), among which, the application acceptance benchmark man-hour (Ha) is set up at 12 man-hours, the maintenance function benchmark man-hour is calculated as follow:
    • a) Airframe: 40 man-hours for each maintenance production line, extra 12 man-hours for one more aircraft type of the same maintenance production line; For the line maintenance, 8 man-hours for each type of aircraft.
    • b) Power plant (including APU):24 man-hours for each maintenance production line, and extra 8 man-hours for one more power plant type of the same production line.
    • c) Propeller: 16 man-hours for each maintenance production line, and extra 4 man-hours for one more propeller type of the same production line.
    • d) Components: 24 man-hours for less than 30 (included) items; 48 man-hours for 30 to100 (included) items; 72 man-hours for 100 to 200 (included) items; 96 man-hours for 200 to 500(included) items; 120 man-hours for 500 to1000 (included) items; 144 man-hours for 1000 to 3000 (included) items; 168 man-hours for 3000 to 5000 (included) items; 192 man-hours for 5000 to 10000 (included) items; For items above 10000, on the basis of 192 man-hours, add 24 man-hours for addition of any items up to 10000 man-hours.
    • e) Specialized service: 4 man-hours for each special process.
    • (5) Weighting coefficient of standard man-hour (K1): it is 1 when Chinese is the working language, and it's 4 when English or other language is the working language;
    • (6)Man-hour fee (N): it is 200 Yuan per man-hour.
    • (7) Supplementary fee (S) includes costs for accommodations, air tickets, ground transportations, and other costs during certification process. (The supplementary fee will not be charged if those costs may be provided or covered by the maintenance organization).
    • Calculation formula:
      To=A+C+S=H*K1*N+S=(Ha+Hc)*K1*N+S
      Note: "Ha" is the application acceptance benchmark man-hour; "Hc" is maintenance function benchmark man-hour.
    • 2. Re-audit fee for maintenance organization (Ta)
    • (1) Re-audit fee for maintenance organization (Ta) is the summation of application acceptance fee (A), on site audit fee (C) and supplementary fee (S).
    • (2) Application acceptance fee (A) and on site audit fee (C) is calculated as standard man-hour for original auditing multiplied by coefficient K2 (K2=0.6)
    • (3)Supplementary fee (S) includes costs for accommodations, air tickets, ground transportations, and other costs during certification process. (The supplementary fee will not be charged if those costs may be provided or covered by the maintenance organization).
    • Calculation formula:
      Ta=A+C+S=H*K1*N*K2+S=(Ha+Hc)*K1*N*K2+S
      Note: "Ha" is the application acceptance benchmark man-hour; "Hc" is maintenance function benchmark man-hour.
    • 3. Fee for changing maintenance organization certificate (Tc)
    • (1) If the organization applies for changing organization name only, the organization will be charged for the application acceptance fee (A) only.
    • Tc=A=Ha×K1×N
      Note: Ha is the application acceptance benchmark man-hour
    • (2) Fee for location changing is the summation of application acceptance fee (A), on site audit fee (C) and supplementary fee (S).
    • a) Application acceptance fee (A) and on site audit fee (C) will be calculated as standard man-hour for original auditing multiplied by coefficient K3 (K3=0.8)
    • b) Supplementary fee (S) includes costs for accommodations, air tickets, ground transportations, and other costs during certification process. (The supplementary fee will not be charged if those costs may be provided or covered by the maintenance organization).
    • Calculation formula:
      Tc=A+C+S=H*K1*N*K3+S=(Ha+Hc)*K1*N*K3+S
      Note: "Ha" is the application acceptance benchmark man-hour; "Hc" is maintenance function benchmark man-hour.
    • (3) Fee for maintenance rating or items changing: for adding items, the fee standard is same as that one of the original application; for reducing items, no charge is required and also no more charge for this item in the next re-audit of the maintenance organization. When only apply for changing maintenance capability list without changing the maintenance organization certificate, the fee shall be counted from next re-audit instead of being charged separately.
    • Notes:
    • 1. "The same maintenance production line" means at the same maintenance area with the same housing & facilities, the same personnel and management methods.
    • 2. The charge above is calculated by Chinese currency-RMB. The amount will be converted into USD according to the exchange rate published by the Bank of China and documented in the issued Notification of Acceptance for Application.
