REQUIRED EQUIPMENT FOR CAT2 AND CAT3 for Boeings

I was hoping somebody could help me understand the reason for the difference between the Airbus and Boeing fleets here.

In our Airbus QRHs we have a table that lists the REQUIRED EQUIPMENT FOR CAT2 AND CAT3. The table is intended to be referenced before departure and following any in flight failure. The reasoning for the table is that not every piece of required equipment is annunciated or monitored by the FMGS.

There is no such table in the Boeing documents so it leads me to wonder how does one know if the aircraft meets the minimum equipment requirement for a CAT 2 or Cat 3 approach in a Boeing?

And at some stage in the SNPs.

I guess it’s an airline option?

When i was still flying the 737 we had a similar list in the QRH, both for fail operational and fail passive equipment.

The 737 has a list of required equipment in the limitations section of the AFM. Granted, not the most convenient location, but the list is there.
