Periodic review 3



If you know of any obstacle situation that might affect the procedure, you MUST review the procedure (not "should"). This has nothing to do with periodical maintenance. This is called "continued maintenance".

Five years is the maximum for periodic review. Anything more stringent can be set forth by the State Authority. Anything less stringent is a deviation from PANS-OPS and must be published in the AIP. Furthermore as from November 2016, the State Responsibilities for Procedure Design and Oversight will be standardized at Annex level. Meaning that Non-compliance will have to be reported to ICAO.
