Aviation parts tag

Tagging, especially "yellow tag," is a term used in US aviation to indicate a part is serviceable and airworthy as evaluated by an FAA certified repair station.[1] It is important to note that this term is an industry term and is not an FAA requirement or even mentioned in the Federal Aviation Regulations (FAR).[2][3]

  • Red Tag: component is scrap or unusable
  • Yellow Tag: component is serviceable and airworthy
  • Green Tag: component is not airworthy but is repairable

In Canada, a green tag is used for a serviceable and airworthy part but as in the US, the presence of the tag does not guarantee that the part is legal for use in certificated aircraft.
