In reply to:
Will CAA issue TIs with their licences - and if not which organisation will?

No, the CAA approve the operators certificate. The rating is issued by 'a' Part 149.

So instead of having to have all TM's rated by one particular 149 for each DZ. You can have TM's with ratings from different 149's if you wish.

This will make life easier than the current situation for TM's changing DZ's.

It does come down to how manual is written for any particular DZ, some DZ's may specify a particular 149 but ours does not. We will still use NZSA for foreign crossovers etc as they have been good to us and their fee structure and processing time is very reasonable. The NZSA also a non profit organisation as apposed to the other 2 organisations which are companies. This alone says a lot about the founders ethics.

It would not make sense for the CAA to issue tandem ratings ditrectly as tandems are not necessarily for commercial use, they can also be sporting jumps for training or simply for fun.

I believe all 3 part 149 organisations will remain, though I would like to see them amalgamate in the future.
