• CAAP SMS-1(0)
Project SS 15/04 - Safety management systems - Part 5 of CASR
Current Safety Management System (SMS) legislation differs between types of organisations. SMS legislation needs to be consistent and in line with ICAO Annex 19 requirements, with any additional elements considered necessary in the interest of the safety of aviation. At present CASA has no standardised SMS framework, therefore amendments to the regulations in the form of a new Part 5 of CASR will provide SMS components and elements that are in-line with Annex 19. Differences cause confusion, not only for the wider aviation community within Australia but also the CASA inspectorate.
Continuing to have non-standardised SMS legislation/guidance material has the potential to cause operators to have difficulties in complying with the rules, leading to non-compliance and ultimately improper or ineffective use of SMS.
To provide a standardised framework for SMS components and elements through a new Part 5 of CASR, along with a new MOS and supporting material.
The following documents will also need to be reviewed:
• CAAP SMS-1(0)
• CAAP SMS-2(0)
• CAAP SMS-3(1)
• CAAP SMS-4(0)
• AC 139-16(1)
• Part 145 AMC/GM
• AC 171-3(0)
• AC 172-1(0).
This project was approved by the Acting EM, Standards Division 30 October 2015.
