Has anybody got any insight to a new alleged requirement to carry not only a medical certificate properly annotated by your AME but to also carry the Letter from the FAA AeroMed HQ outlining the Special Issuance authority when operating outside the USA, specifically in any other ICAO airspace?

My company has made this requirement an SOP, but I have not revieved any formal notification of such from OKC, and I am trying to find the genisis of said requirement.

If you don't know what this is about, consider your self lucky, otherwise anyone with real knowledge about this feel free to respond.

This borders on possible ADA violations, IMHO

Thanks

My most recent SI letter specified that it must be carried at all times, in bold. I made a copy and stuck it in my Jepp binder.

My SI letter also states that I must carry the authorization at all times when I'm flying.
