So I've been using (and see others using) the FAA and FAR tags somewhat interchangeably, and there are a lot of questions with both tags since people ask questions about "FAA rules" instead of the FARs.
Regulatory Authority Tags
I propose that we remove the FAA, ICAO, etc. tags from all questions unless they specifically deal with questions about how the regulatory authority works, or working directly with them. Appropriate questions could include any time that you must work directly with the FAA, such as:
- Letters of Authorization (RVSM, ADS-B, etc.)
- Company Operations Specification approvals
- Manual Approvals/Acceptance/Revisions
- Filling out and submitting various forms (8410, 8710, etc.)
- Rulemaking Process
Since not all regulatory agencies have a different name for their regulations (for instance, there is ICAO and ICAO regulations instead of FAA and FARs), I suggest that we create and use tags specifically for regulations in a standard format, and all questions about regulations should be retagged as appropriate.
