According to aerodrome regulations (ICAO, EASA, or others) one of the aims of a management system is to ensure compliance with all relevant and applicable legal requirements, technical rules and procedures. Ensuring compliance with the requirements for aerodrome design, organisational factors, operations, and approved procedures, programmes and plans, is a key element of maintaining high safety levels. 

Effective compliance assurance relies on a formal process of compliance monitoring which depends on detailed audit planning, audit programming and audit scheduling. Like the conduction of audits and inspections, a lot of compliance monitoring is undertaken on a continuous and daily basis through observations of operational and safety performance, and different feedback channels. 

Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) inspectors will focus on the output of operators’ own audits to judge the effectiveness of their management system and the quantity and quality of resources. 

This 2-day course is based on the most recent aerodrome regulations and world’s best practices on compliance management. The course is customised to its audience, location and applicable regulatory framework, i.e. EASA for European sessions, and ICAO – or national implementation – for international sessions. It will provide attendees with a broad and deep understanding of both the principles and the practical application of compliance monitoring and compliance management. Specifically, the course will focus on building audit programmes and designing checklists and questionnaires to ensure compliance is maintained within the organisation and operation. Participants will also get an understanding of how compliance monitoring itself can be – independently – monitored. 

The course will allow for a comprehensive exchange on compliance monitoring with experts from around the world. 

Use will be made of samples and examples, and attendees will be invited to participate in discussing case studies, or to offer their own cases for discussion.

Trainer

Moritz Kaschel, M.Sc.

Moritz holds a Master’s Degree in Aeronautical Engineering and is further specialised in Airport Management Systems, Auditing and Aerodrome Planning. As a member of airsight’s consulting team, these combined competencies enable him to assist Aerodromes within their certification process and related fields (e.g. compliance checks and inspections, manuals and procedures, ground handling processes). 

At airsight, he conducted several projects for airports such as Dublin, Milan, Luxembourg and others. He also conducted inspections of their airside infrastructure (incl. signs, lights, marking), including the assessment of the pavement conditions - using drones (as holding a commercial UAV operator license and radiotelephone operator´s certificate).

More recently, Moritz assisted Luxembourg Airport to obtain a new certificate in accordance to the new EASA requirements – a task of several months requiring a good knowledge of the applicable regulations as well as project management skills. Additionally, he was involved in the development of a corrective action plan for a major Middle Eastern airport and conducted airside infrastructure inspections in western Africa.

With his broad ranging experience regarding Airport Management Systems and Compliance, he is an instructor for multiple airsight courses.
