Project FS 19/02 - Proposal to amend CAOs 82.3 and 82.5 to implement ICAO Annex 19 SARPs
Amendment 1 of Annex 19 became effective on 11 July 2016 and will be applicable from 7 November 2019. The amendment includes important changes to the provisions governing the protection of safety data, safety information collection, analysis, protection, sharing and exchange within the safety data collection and processing systems (SDCPS) which States such as Australia are required to have. The following is an extract from the State Letter on the subject – State Letter AN 8/3.1-16/16.
Amendment 1 provides enhanced protections to safety data and safety information as well as their sources. One of the key elements of the proposed amendments is that guidance material contained in Attachment B to Annex 19 be upgraded to the status of SARPs, grouped within a new Appendix. The proposed amendments enhance legal safeguards intended to assure the appropriate use and protection of safety information, thereby facilitating its continued availability to support proactive safety improvement strategies. Definitions for safety data and safety information have also been developed to provide clarity to the scope of the provisions, thereby facilitating consistent application.
To give timely effect to these new Annex provisions, interim amendments will need to be made to the relevant provisions of CAO 82.3 and 82.5, with a view to corresponding amendments to CASR Subpart 119.F (which commences in March 2021).
The objective of this proposal is to transpose the recommended changes outlined in 5.3 Safety data and safety information protection as described in Amendment 1 to Annex 19. Reviewing and publishing changes to reporting requirements in CAO 82.3 and 82.5 prior to 7 November 2019 with the view of reflecting these provisions in CASR 119 prior to its commencement date of 25 March 2021.
