The CAP 08 | Certificate of Airworthiness is a guide for the person who will be presenting an aircraft and its associated records and documents to a CAA airworthiness inspector.
The person presenting the aircraft and its records would normally be the Nominated Airworthiness Coordinator or Postholder for Continuing Airworthiness, unless different arrangements are agreed in advance with the assigned CAA airworthiness inspector. This person is responsible, prior to the aircraft inspection, to perform their own inspection of the aircraft and its associated records and documents for ensuring they meet CAA standards and requirements.
The CAR 21 | Certification of Aircraft Subpart H details the requirements governing the airworthiness certification of an aircraft.
