Safety & Compliance Management for LUC Holders

According to Regulation (EU) 2019/947, any legal person is eligible to apply for a Light UAS Operator Certificate (LUC). The LUC grants the holder different privileges determined in the LUC, such as the internal authorisation of certain UAS operations without prior approval by the Competent Authority if defined conditions are met. In order to receive and maintain an LUC, UAS operators applying for an LUC and LUC holders need to demonstrate compliance with the requirements defined in Part C of Regulation (EU) 2019/947. The establishment and implementation of a safety management system forms a major part of these requirements. The ICAO defines safety management system as “a systematic approach to managing safety, including the necessary organizational structures, accountabilities, policies and procedures”.

This course explores important aspects and components of an effective safety and compliance management system based on the EU requirements for LUC applicants and holders. The participants will be introduced to relevant regulatory framework including the Basic Regulation (EU) 2018/1139 and Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/947. Moreover, this course will focus on the safety risk management and operational control system for safety-relevant tasks, such as the development, authorisation and implementation of concept of operations. Methods and knowledge of how to create a safety policy, promote safety within the organisation and build a safety culture will be provided to the participants. In order to maintain a safe system, LUC holders are also required to manage changes in a systematic manner and to continuously monitor the compliance with applicable requirements. Therefore, the course will provide the participants with essential basics of change management and compliance monitoring.

The main goal of this course is to enable the participants to apply the requirements regarding the safety management system to their organisation so that safe UAS operations under the LUC can be ensured and compliance with EU regulations can be demonstrated.
This course targets personnel of LUC holders and UAS operators applying or intending to apply for an LUC, including Accountable Managers, Safety Managers and Compliance Monitoring Managers.

Please note that the conduction of operational risk assessments (i.e. SORA) will not be addressed in this course.
