FAA Designee Program

The Designee Management System (DMS) is a web-based tool designed to standardize the management of designees. The Designee Management Policy establishes the process and procedures for managing all aspects of administration including registration, application, selection, appointment, orientation, training, oversight, suspension and termination.

The DMS program represents a consolidation of existing policy and procedures across the Office of Aviation Safety (AVS) lines of business: Aircraft Certification Service (AIR), Flight Standards Service (AFS) and the Office of Aerospace Medicine (AAM). All Applicants for designation, current designees, and FAA personnel responsible for managing designees/delegations must follow the Designee Management Policy and use the DMS tool as directed except for the holders of Organization Designation Authorization (ODA).
