On the other hand, there is no regulation they must forward these times when they remove an article or product from service and route it for replacement or overhaul. However, since a repair shop requires that specific information in order to provide the most cost-effective and complete service it falls to the owner/operator to provide all required records or face the consequences: a complete overhaul with replacement of all life limited parts. Don't sell yourself short.
Wrench1, many thanks!
This is very clear and almost "self explanatory". Still quite surprised by the number of people (me included!) so ignorant of the CAMO responsibilities.

An interesting variation of the topic is the casual MRO broker walking in with units taken for scrapped aircraft.... pretending maintenance with zero history (again, how is it possible??). Looks to me sometimes people thinks aviation follows the same rules of automotive repairs....
