The major assurance functions of CEMILAC cover the whole spectrum of activities in Indian Military Aviation, such as, evaluation of ab-initio indigenous designs, airworthiness assurance in license programmes which calls for deviation assessment, life extension, modification and updates as well as failure analysis. Material certification, monitoring and ensuring continued airworthiness, software verification and validation for airborne applications are other areas of challenge. Certification of systems developed abroad is also undertaken by CEMILAC. Mid-Life upgrades are a necessity to fully realize the potential of an aircraft and helicopter. Such upgrades include weapon systems, EW systems, avionic systems etc. CEMILAC certifies the airworthiness of these upgrades on indigenously designed, licence produced, as well as bought out aircraft/helicopters enhancing the operational effectiveness of these aircraft/helicopters.

CEMILAC and its RCMAs have evolved and acquired the expertise necessary for design evaluation of aircraft engines and other airborne systems. During CEMILAC's involvement with various programs in the past five decades, CEMILAC scientists have imbibed the essential technique of design evaluation of aircraft, engines, systems and equipment.

In the recent past with the growth of economy, liberalization in policy and urge to involve more industries within the country in the national projects, the role of CEMILAC has become even more challenging to dovetail with the national goals without compromising the safety and performance requirements in the Airworthiness Assurance of military aircraft. Small and medium scale industries evincing interest in partnering with the main stream activities of the aeronautical industry and the laboratories have called upon CEMILAC to consider and provide support in approving the design departments of such work centres. The process of the approval has paved the way for highlighting the technical needs and reinforce the prevailing practice to comply with Airworthiness requirements. Many industries having design competence, testing laboratories and the test houses have been evaluated and approved by CEMILAC to render support to the aircraft projects.
