The Federal Aviation Administration said Tuesday it will work with NASA, the U.S. Air Force, and the U.S. Department of Transportation to certify Boeing’s proposed software fix for its beleaguered 737 Max aircraft.

The FAA said the group of three will comprise a Technical Advisory Board that will review proposed changes to Boeing’s software for the 737 Max.

In that capacity, it will “identify issues where further investigation is required prior to FAA approval of the design change

The group will “directly inform the FAA’s decision concerning the 737 MAX fleet’s safe return to service,” as part of the process of certifying the aircraft to return to the skies following its grounding as a result of two fatal crashes.

Last month, the agency said that it will also convene experts from nine civil aviation authorities across the globe to participate in the Boeing 737 MAX Joint Authorities Technical Review.
