Such voluntary data must be submitted for a minimum of 12 consecutive months. The voluntary submission must
meet the exact reporting specifications set forth in this directive. Volunteering carriers that wish to discontinue reporting after one year must advise the Assistant Director, AI, a minimum of 30 days before discontinuance, so that the necessary changes can be made to the Department's data programs.
- Changes in reporting air carriers and reportable airports will be made as necessary by the Assistant Director, AI, under authority delegated in § 385.19 of the Department's regulations.
