Project FS 16/08 - Medical certification standards
Streamlining of processes for medical certification of pilots (and air traffic controllers) has been a strong area of focus for CASA over recent years, and a discussion paper exploring various policy issues was published in December 2016.
Over 160 responses were received and there was a wide variety of issues and opinions received. An independent report on the submissions received was submitted to CASA and was released publicly.
A three-phased approach to reform CASA’s approach to aviation medicine was proposed and approved in 2017.
- Phase 1: Implementation of immediate measures to address some of the key issues identified in the responses
- Phase 2: Redesign the Class 2 medical certification system (creation of a Basic Class 2 Medical Certificate)
- Phase 3: Advanced measures to ensure the entire medical certification scheme remains contemporary.
The objectives of this project are to:
- reform to CASA’s approach to Class 2 and recreational medical certification with a focus on both medical standards and simplification of processing
- leverage CASA’s Designated Aviation Medical Examiner (DAME) capability to greater effect
- use of more evidence and data in shaping the future of aviation medicine regulatory decision making.
This project is associated with:
- Part 67 of CASR
