    Significance and Use

    4.1 The term “electrical system” as used in this practice means those parts of the aircraft that generate, distribute, and use electrical energy, including their support and attachments.

    4.2 The satisfactory performance of an aircraft is dependent upon the continued reliability of the electrical system.

    4.3 Damaged wiring or equipment in an aircraft, regardless of how minor it may appear to be, cannot be tolerated. It is, therefore, important that maintenance be accomplished using the best techniques and practices to minimize the possibility of failure.

    4.4 When inspecting and evaluating EWIS, improper wiring, routing, or repairs shall be corrected regardless of the origin of the error.

    4.5 This practice is not intended to supersede or replace any government specification or specific manufacturer’s instruction regarding electrical system inspection and repair

    1. Scope

    1.1 This practice covers basic inspection procedures for electrical wiring interconnect systems for aircraft electrical wiring systems.

    1.2 This practice is not intended to replace any instructions for continued airworthiness published by the aircraft or accessory manufacturer or type design holder.

    1.3 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.

    1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
