Reasons for the Offset Proposal
•
The Taiwan CAA in discussion with airlines and MRO’s has nearly completed the
draft for the new CAA part 66 and 147 regulations. The draft is expected to be
released in the second half of 2010.
•
The final version is expected to be empowered until end of 2011.
•
The previous license knowledge and skill requirements were based on FAR part
65 standards.
•
The new license knowledge and skill requirements are based on EASA part 66
standards including the curriculum for basic and type training.
•
There is a huge gap between those both requirements and the arrangement of the
training modules is completely different between the old and new regulation.
•
Conversion training and/or conversion examinations will be needed to upgrade
the present license holder (estimated 1800 license holders) to the new license
without limitations.

Reasons for the Offset Proposal (cont.)
•
Taiwan is the first National Aviation Authority transferring from an FAA based
system to an EASA based systems. There is no documentation and
experience available from another aviation authority which can ease and
speed up the comparison.
•
The comparison determines what conversion requirements have to be
covered by each license holder to convert to the new license.
•
To convert, license holders have to take examinations. For the preparation
training or self preparation there are no customized books available.
•
The license holder would have to pick out of many books what they need to
learn what causes them much more time to prepare as it is necessary.
•
Since the differences between the old and new licenses are not defined yet,
there is no curriculum for the conversion training.

Reasons for the Offset Proposal (cont.)
•
The data base for examination questions covering the additional knowledge
for the conversion requirements is not available yet. Examination questions
need to be prepared in accordance to the conversion requirements.
•
For airlines and MRO’s everyday a qualified mechanic is absent for training
costs money and influences production. They want that the conversion is as
efficient as possible within the shortest time and highest passing rate.
•
That means an optimized program for the conversion is needed, including
curriculum, training books, examinations, avoiding any waste of time,
Who can provide enough qualified manpower and has the know-how to do this
job and how long will the preparation take? And who will pay for all those man
hours needed?
Conclusion: An Offset Program is needed.

Tasks and services included in the Offset program
Conversion and transition:
•
The offset program shall provide the Taiwan Aviation Industry with:
•
Analysis of the differences between the current license and the new license
requirements. The analysis report needs to be approved by CAA and to be
converted into limitations for the new license, the work already done by China
Airlines can be used as a base.
•
Out of this analysis a curriculum shall be developed which knowledge
requirements are necessary to remove those limitations.
•
Experience and education background of present license holders shall be
assessed to reduce the required duration of conversion training to the
minimum.

Timeframe for the Offset Project
•
The executive committee of the ICP office is deciding every 3 months on
offset applications.
•
1 month after the decision for this offset project the analysis will start and
will take about 3 months. Finished sections of the analysis can already be
submitted during this period for review by CAA.
•
The curriculum can be finished within 3 weeks after the approval of the
analysis.
•
The preparation of the training programs will take about 4 months. During
the same period the examination data base can be prepared and
instructors, examiners and assessors can be trained.
•
Conversion examinations and courses can be performed directly
afterwards.

Offset Rules
Offset rules:
•
An offset provider has offset credit obligations depending on the value or
his sales to a country. These credits can be used for offset projects.
•
An offset project can be applied by an organization which needs such a
project or the offset provider can apply by himself.
•
The project is performed by a foreign company which provides the
special know-how, needed to perform the project.
•
The ICP office reviews the application and if there is a positive result it
will submit it to the executive committee for final decision.

Offset Rules (cont.)
Offset rules:
•
The real costs of different services are converted into offset credits.
•
Depending on the technical value of each service a multiplier applies.
Multipliers can be between 1 and 10 depending on the technical value.
•
Standard products which can be purchased everywhere have a low technical
value.
Products and services which can not be purchased on normal base have a high
technical value, e.g. training books customized for a conversion program.
•
The sum off the calculated credits from all offset services is deducted from the
offset obligations from the offset provider.
•
For the received services the offset recipient should pay 0.35% of the value of
the credits received back to the IDB office.

Offset Rules (cont.)
Calculation example:
Assumption for conversion training.
In order to remove all limitations from the new license it is assumed that e.g.
700 hours of conversion training is needed. Each hour would account for
350 NT. Since the technical value in offset projects is appreciated by a
multiplier the technical value of training is normally considered as the
multiplier 5.
350 TWD * 5 = 1750 TWD.
In accordance to Taiwan offset regulation the recipient must return 0.35% of
the received value to the IDB office.
0.35% of 1750 TWD = 6.125 TWD per training hour.

How can this offset project help to perform the change?
• The same principle applies to consulting services. For services which
benefit the entire aviation industry system for sharing must be
defined.
• Since this sharing ratio is difficult to be evaluated the 0.35% should
be refunded to the airlines and MRO’s by the offset service provider.
