The circumstances for the original information request and subsequent renewal is the Aviation Safety and Federal Aviation Administration Extension Act of 2010 (the Act), Public Law 111-216, § 215 (enacted on August 1, 2010). The Act required the FAA to initiate rulemaking for all part 121 air carriers to implement a Safety Management System. On January 9, 2015 Safety Management Systems for Domestic, Flag, and Supplemental Operations Certificate Holder (14 CFR parts 5 and 119) final rule was enacted. On March 9, 2018, all 72 part 121 certificates met the final compliance date for completing a Safety Management System acceptable to the FAA Administrator. This information request renewal has changes from the original request including: the current number of certificate holders (68 in 2021 as compared to 90 in 2015); successful completion by March 9, 2018, all existing part 121 certificate holders to have an SMS; new burden analysis reflecting SMS implementation; and revised projection of number of new part 121 applicants required to submit an SMS implementation plan as part of the initial certification process.

Miscellaneous Actions
This information request renewal has changes from the original request including the current number of certificate holders (68 as of 2021 as compared to 90 in 2015); the successful completion of the SMS requirement that all existing part 121 certificate holders have an SMS by March 9, 2018; new burden analysis reflecting SMS implementation and revised projection of new part 121 applicants that as part of their certification process will have to submit an SMS implementation plan. Certificate holders authorized to conduct operations under 14 CFR part 121 are required to develop and implement a Safety Management System (SMS) to improve the safety of their aviation related activities. At the time of 2015 rule publication, there were 90 part 121 certificate holders. By March 9, 2018, the part 5 effective date, the number of part 121 certificate holders changed from 90 in 2015 to 72 and all met the final compliance date for completing a Safety Management System. As of December 31, 2020 there are 68 part 121 certificate holders. The FAA also anticipates one part 121 certificate holder applicant will be required to implement an SMS as part of the certification process.
