Horatio Leafblower,

That would be the hope but CASA do not have a good track record in that regard. For instance take the issue of what markings you need to paint on an aircraft, They issued at least 3 exemptions dating from 2008 allowing an aircraft less than 5700kg and operated within Australia to be operated without marking on the underside of the wings.

CASA EX05/08 - Exemption - display of markings and carriage of identification plates

CASA EX04/12 - Exemption - display of markings and carriage of identification plates

CASA EX16/15 - Exemption — display of markings and carriage of identification plates

The most recent one was in 2015 and is to be in force until the 2015 revision to part 45 comes into force in 2015. 7 years and 3 exemptions to update what is at best a relatively straight forward issue.

Or how about the way that CASA allows builders of experimental amateur built aircraft to do maintenance as an exemption. From time to time it expires and there have been periods when there is no exemption in place.

Hopefully CASA will not be so slow to implement the logging of copilot time in the regulations.
