Controller responsibilities must include but not be limited to the following:
NOTE: The operations supervisor/CIC is responsible for system acceptance of a non-RVSM aircraft beyond the initial sector-to-sector coordination following the pilot request to access the airspace. Operations supervisor/CIC responsibilities are defined in FAA Order JO 7210.3, Chapter 6, Section 9, Reduced Vertical Separation Minimum (RVSM).
NOTE: Changing the equipment suffix instead of amending the equipment string may result in incorrect revisions to other ICAO qualifiers.
NOTE: In a transponder out situation, the aircraft's altitude-keeping capabilities required for flight in RVSM airspace should remain operational.
