ROK issued its first type certificate to the KC-100 airplane, Part 23 normal category, and become the State of Design (SoD) in 2013. Before this, ROK aviation regulations were focused on the operation and continued airworthiness of aircraft registered and operated in ROK that were designed and manufactured in another contracting state. Therefore the implementation of reporting system were restricted to gather the failure and service difficulty reports from the owners or operators and transmit the information to the State of Design and/or the manufacture relating to the type certificated aircraft. However, ROK, to fulfill the accountability of the State of Design, has to ensure there is a system to address the information received from the State of Registry on failure, malfunctions, defects and other occurrences that might cause adverse effects on the continuing airworthiness of the korean type certificated aircraft. This paper presents an overview of ICAO requirements for the State of Design, and current implementation of reporting system of USA and Japan and discusses the current status and further considerations on the rule-making for the malfunction, defect and failure reporting system applicable to the korean indigenous aircraft.
