Who do the regulations apply to?
CASR Part 99B sets out the organisations and individuals (collectively referred to as 'DAMP organisations') that need a DAMP.
A DAMP organisation:
- is one of the entities listed in CASR 99.030; and
- has employees who perform, or are available to perform, any of the specified 'safety sensitive aviation activities' (SSAAs) set out in CASR 99.015.
Not all organisations need a full DAMP. Micro-businesses with ten or less SSAA employees may be eligible to adopt CASA's standard DAMP. Please refer to the exemptions section of the Drug and Alcohol Management Plans (DAMP) - Part 99 page for more information.
