If it is found that a change has an impact on safety (as is the case in the vast majority of cases), it is necessary to carry out a process of assessing its significance based on the criteria of the regulation. This process, depending from the scope and subject of the change, may be characterized by high complexity and complexity. In this case, it is particularly useful to know how similar changes are assessed on the market and how the National Security Authority (UTK) perceives and evaluates individual approaches of applicants.

It should be borne in mind that the team of experts signing the assessment takes responsibility for the introduced changes, so it is important to provide all possible means andtake advantage of any help you canminimize change risk.
