Despite Table 1 and the exclusions annotated on a licence issued under Part 66 of CASR 1998, and to be without doubt, a person who, in accordance with regulation 202.341, 202.342, 202.343 or 202.344, held, or was taken to be entitled to the issue of, an aircraft maintenance engineer licence by:
     1.   previously holding an engine category Group 1 or 2 rating, or an airframe category Group 1, 2 or 19 rating, may perform maintenance certifications and issue certificates of release to service in relation to any of the following kinds of maintenance and to which that licence and rating applied:
(a)    for a Category B1 licence, on aircraft:
·         fitted with a single generator; and
·         approved only for V.F.R. operations;
        all electrical maintenance.
(b)    for a Category B1 licence, on aircraft approved only for V.F.R. operations
        — for aircraft general instruments (excluding, RMI, inertial navigation, multi-axis autopilots), all instrument system maintenance.
     2.   previously holding an engine or airframe category rated licence, may perform maintenance certifications and issue certificates of release to service in relation to any of the following kinds of maintenance and to which that licence and rating applied:
        for a category B1 licence, for structural, powerplant, mechanical, electrical and avionic systems:
·         daily, periodic or manufacturers’ equivalent inspection; and
