The European Aviation Safety Agency says it is proposing the checks after a batch of second-stage disks were subjected to a "forging process deficiency" during manufacture.
EASA says the disks might, as a result, have undetected defects and a lower life capability.
This could result in an uncontained failure of the turbine disk.
