QSA activities, FAA utilizes a form for auditees to provide feedback to

audited at the outset of the QSA. The FAA encourages completion of the 
form within 30 days of the QSA post-audit conference; however, 
completion of the form is not mandatory. The FAA considers any 
proposals for improvements to the QSA process in its pursuit for 
continuous improvement of the Aircraft Certification Service's 
certificate management of production approval holders. The form is 
collected electronically or via prepaid self-addressed envelope.
    Respondents: Approximately 160 production approval holders and 
associated facilities.
    Frequency: Feedback information is collected about 30 days after 
conclusion of the oversight activity. The feedback provided is 
voluntarily submitted by the audited facility on occasion which is 
predicated on their audit due date frequency.
    Estimated Average Burden per Response: 30 minutes.
