EASA has signalled that it intends to mandate a Compliance Monitoring and integrated Management System for approved airworthiness organisations. European Miitary Airworthiness Requirements (EMARs) are likely to follow due to their close alignment with the civil regulatory system. Rather than focusing merely on complying, how can you take full benefit?

We manage what we measure, and if we only measure compliance then compliance is all we get. How can your audit function measure the performance of your compliance monitoring management system and both assure your stakeholders that compliance is present and that policies and procedures are effective?

Whether working in the civil or military sector, having full confidence in your assurance function and in the accuracy of its output is essential if you are to gain maximum safety and business benefit. Once you have this confidence, you have the intelligence you require to design system enhancements, reduce risk and improve performance.

How will this course benefit me?

This 2-day workshop will benefit your quality assurance and/or independent system monitoring (ISM) personnel by introducing the new approach, and will enable them to develop measures that will provide the foundations for effective performance of their function. This will help to:

  • Reduce corporate risk through improved risk mitigation
  • Develop efficient processes that are not only compliant with the words, but also the intent of the EMAR requirements
  • Challenge processes to demonstrate not only compliance but systematic improvements
  • Speak the same ‘language’ as the Authority and support them in achieving Performance Based Oversight.
Key areas of focus*
*Please note that the following topics are indicative only and a pre-workshop discussion with one of our consultants will determine how the workshop will be focused.
  • What does an ‘effective’ quality assurance and/or ISM function look like
  • Measuring performance of the function
  • Key Performance Questions and Key Performance Indicators
  • Consequences of ignoring what your results might be telling you
There are no prerequisites for attendance on this course.
