WHO CAN PROVIDE MAINTENANCE ON A MODE A/C TRANSPONDER AND SYSTEM

Definition:  A transponder is a box that contains all necessary internal circuitry and controls (if it is panel mounted).  It can be removed from a rack or tray for maintenance or repair.

A transponder system may be defined as the parts that are permanently installed such as the rack or tray, wiring and connectors, circuit protection, antenna and the coax (transmission line) that supplies the antenna as well as the transponder itself. Interfacing items usually include an encoder (altitude reporter) and possibly a connection to an ADS-B, GPS, display, control head or other item.  

PRIVATE PILOT:  May conduct functional testing in accordance with the manufacturer's operational instructions.  A private pilot may not provide maintenance on any part of the system (even preventative).

LICENSED MECHANIC:  May remove the transponder for maintenance or inspect wiring, security and test wiring continuity.

CERTIFIED REPAIR STATION:  May provide both of the above plus recertification and repairs if appropriately rated.  Many CRS holders perform testing only.

MANUFACTURER OF TRANSPONDER:  May provide repairs but not authorized to recertify.

THIS AGENCY:  All of the above. However unless you can bring the aircraft to us you will need a licensed mechanic to perform maintenance on the system.
