Implementing and maintaining a management system as an aerodrome operator is way more than just a requirement from the Basic Regulation (EU) 2018/1139. It is a crucial pillar to ensure safe, compliant and efficient airport operations. But who is actually responsible and who is accountable?

Since the adoption of Regulation (EU) No. 139/2014, an aerodrome operator is required to demonstrate to their competent authorities the compliance of their Management System (MS), integrating a Safety Management System (SMS). The corresponding Implementing Rule ADR.OR.D.005 includes more details for the implementation. In addition, the Acceptable Means of Compliance (AMC) and Guidance Material (GM) by EASA further specifies how a compliant management system should be set up.

Attendees of this 2-day training course will gain the necessary knowledge to review, adapt and extend their existing MS and SMS in order to fulfil the EU/EASA requirements. 

The course focuses on the “11 management bricks” of the above-mentioned Implementing Rule, including, amongst others, clear lines of accountabilities and responsibilities, compliance monitoring as well as change management.

Attendees will be encouraged to participate by providing examples of strengths and weaknesses of their existing MS, SMS, and other elements such as compliance monitoring and quality management system.
