The AME asks health questions and carries out a full physical examination from head to toe. A PPL test takes longer than a LAPL test. The same applies to an initial inspection versus a re-inspection. An electronic file is created in which all questions, research data and relevant additional correspondence and research data are listed. Only the AME has log-in codes for this file, called Empic, issued and managed by the IL&T, medical authority.
At the end of the inspection, AME and the inspector both sign for approval of the inspection.

The AME cannot issue a medical certificate because the inspector is rejected.
All decisions, approvals, partial approvals and rejections are substantiated with reference to the AME decision rules: Implementing rules EU 1178, AMC ARA, Part-Med and / or Guidelines Implementation rules of the EASA.
