FAA’s Regulatory and Guidance Library is undergoing a phased decommissioning and is expected to be completely retired no later than the end of summer 2022. All information is currently accessible on the Dynamic Regulatory System (DRS) which will replace RGL. The FAA is encouraging users to start exploring the new site at drs.faa.gov.
For those who desire a tutorial guide for the new system, FAA officials say that PDF tutorial guides are available by contacting them via email at 9-AVS-AIR-Regulatory-and-Guidance-Library@FAA.gov.
Beginning Aug. 17, the AD documents will only be available on the newly developed Dynamic Regulatory System (DRS) at https://drs.faa.gov/browse.
The following databases were decommissioned after Aug. 16, 2022, in the Regulatory Guidance Library, including:
• Emergency Airworthiness Directives (EAD)
• Airworthiness Directives (AD)
• Airworthiness Directives: Biweekly (AD Biweekly)
To subscribe to ADs and SAIBs go to the FAA GovDelivery Service. If you are already subscribed to these notifications, your subscription should continue, according to the FAA.
The AD Biweekly, a paid subscription of all ADs issued in the Federal Register over the previous two-week period, will continue to be mailed as well.
