Technical Working Groups
Technical Working Groups (TWG) are established by the Aviation Safety Advisory Panel (ASAP). TWGs review specific issues within industry sectors and provide advice and recommendations to the ASAP.
As described in the ASAP Terms of Reference, TWGs may be established where there are identified issues within an industry sector or specific aviation subject matter.
If you would like to register your interest in a TWG, please visit the CASA Consultation Hub.

Below is a brief overview of the process of a TWG:
- ASAP members agree to establish a new TWG based on an identified need to address specific issues within an industry sector or subject matter. Tasking Instructions for the new TWG are also created and approved.
- Nominations for the TWG are requested from ASAP members. The nominations are approved by the ASAP Chair.
- The ASAP Secretariat arranges logistics for the TWG meetings, reporting, and membership.
- Through meetings, the TWG addresses the policy outcomes.
- The TWG reports back to the ASAP.
- ASAP takes on the advice made by the TWG, and delivers its recommendation to the Director of Aviation Safety.
