A missed approach must be executed if:

2. during an instrument approach and below MSA the performance of the radio aid becomes suspect, or the radio aid fails; or
3. visual reference is not established at or before reaching the MAPT or DA/RH from which the missed approach procedure commences; or
4. a landing cannot be effected from a runway approach, unless a circling approach can be conducted in weather conditions equal to or better than those specified for circling; or
5. visual reference is lost while circling to land from an instrument approach.

82

A missed approach is required for any of the following messages if using FMS based approaches

Position uncertainty:
 FMC
 NAV ADIRU INERTIAL
 NAV
 UNABLE RNP
 VERIFY POSITION (FMC scratchpad)
As long as ANP remains equal to or less than RNP, the approach may be continued with EICAS GPS.
