The Directorate General of Civil Aviation will also conduct its own checks once the plane is certified by the US regulator Federal Aviation Administration.

In July, the US aviation regulator FAA had found a new potential risk in Boeing's MAX family of aircraft and had asked the company to mitigate it.
