Thanks. CASA's FOI Officer will commence assessing your request for access on 4 January.
 
However, I take this opportunity to note that the ruling itself explains the basis for the view that compliance with the SIDS is mandatory. On this basis, there is no RIS document and there need not be one, because CASA has simply explained in the ruling how it considers the aviation legislation operates in relation to supplemental inspection documents.

Dear ANASTASI, ADAM,
 
I have read the ruling under the signature of "Mark Skidmore" of 15th December 2015 and:
 
I require you to provide the effect and basis for the SID's requirement, including the RIS for private aircraft in Australia in the implementation of SID's and the basis for the mandatory requirement in Australia compared to the US, when the SID's requirements for Australia is based on the FAA requirements.
 
The effect and basis for this is to include all documents that refer to private operations vs. commercial operations and any direct communications with the FAA from/to CASA Australia.
 
Yours sincerely,
 
Rob Cumming

The basis for CASA's view that SIDS are mandatory is set out in an aviation ruling: https://www.casa.gov.au/sites/g/files/net351/f/ar0114-amended.pdf?v=1450759729
 
The Cessna SIDS documents speak for themselves as to the basis or need for inspections, namely service experience of fatigue cracking and corrosion. The inspection documents are proprietary Cessna publications.
 
In light of the above, please clarify what you seek access to.
 
Regards
