_______________________________________

A1. No you cannot print the regular copy of your ePART. This would generate a huge document, with a lot of information that is not easily accessible because hyperlinks do not work.

However you can order an additional printable version of your ePART during the subscription process. This printable version is meant to create a double sided A4-size hard copy. This version limited in scope and only contains the essential elements from the full ePART. The printable version is part of the subscription and is automatically updated together with the corresponding ePART.

A6. Yes you can. If your version of Adobe Acrobat supports this feature. You can use it by selecting the split screen option in the <window> menu. This is particularly useful if you want to view the rule and the corresponding acceptable means of compliance or guidance material in one window.

A7. After publication of an amendment on the EASA website, ePARTS are updated as soon as possible. Normally within a few business days and whenever possible before the date when the amendment becomes effective. Obviously the time required to update the ePART will depend on the scope of the amendment. So a fixed term cannot be given. Until now ePARTS have been updated at or before the effectivity date.

A9. You can add notes and comments (annotations) to your ePARTS. However these will not be automatically transferred to a new or amended document. The annotations need to be exported first and then imported in the new or amended file. In most cases this will require some manual editing. Please read the information leaflet on annotations first.
