National Automated Conformity Inspection Process (NACIP)

The Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) Office of Aviation Safety (AVS) owns and operates the National Automated Conformity Inspection Process (NACIP) system that operates under the authority of 49 U.S.C. § 329(b). NACIP is used by Designated Airworthiness Representatives (DARs), Designated Manufacturing Inspection Representatives (DMIRs), Designated Engineering Representatives (DERs), Organization Designation Authorization (ODA) personnel, or someone working on their behalf (hereafter referred to as “designees” ) to create the FAA Form 8120-10, Request for Conformity (RFC). Additionally, NACIP is used to submit the FAA Form 8120-10 to the Certification Branch (CB) and/or Certification Management Office (CMO) to conduct a conformity inspection.

The FAA is publishing this Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) for NACIP in accordance with Section 208 of the E-Government Act of 2002, because NACIP maintains Personally Identifiable Information (PII) from members of the public, including the designee’s name and designee number, or the name of someone operating on behalf of the designee. In addition, NACIP maintains PII from FAA employees and FAA contractors.
