The pure-tone audiogram performed by a DAME or any other person is treated by the Aviation Medicine Section as a screening test only, and is never used as the final arbiter of an applicant's ability to meet the hearing requirements for a Medical Certificate. Audiograms performed by DAMEs are acceptable. However, any audiometer used for CASA-required audiograms must have been calibrated within two years of the date of such examinations.

The audiogram result is to be stated in the medical assessment form even when a printed results slip is included with the form when lodged.

DAMEs should enclose the audiogram result printout with the medical assessment forms for all original Class 1 and Class 3 applicants.
