We are seeking comments on adopting the International Civil Aviation Organization’s (ICAO) Global Reporting Format (GRF) for Australian aerodromes.

The GRF establishes a standard process on how to check, report and use contaminated runways.

Your feedback is required on policy proposals including:

  • an amendment to the definition of a contaminated runway
  • which aerodrome operators must adopt the GRF
  • how the GRF standards will apply to aerodrome operators
  • triggers for runway surface condition inspections
  • how we will transition and apply these standards.

Provide your comments via the Consultation Hub by 9 November 2022.
