We help organisations tackle the challenges of demonstrating both compliance and safety performance under evolving oversight regimes.
Increasingly, a comprehensive knowledge of the rules and their intent is merely the starting point for organisation approval; in today’s complex regulatory environment and commercially cautious industry, smart implementation of the regulations, with a heightened focus on organisational safety performance, become key to your success.
Partners to the regulators
For more than a decade our extended team of regulatory and safety specialists has been helping Regulatory Authorities develop their ‘Rules’, systems and staff competence, both in Europe and around the world. In that time, Baines Simmons has trained in excess of 1,000 Regulatory Authority delegates, including Inspectors from EASA and Civil and Defence National Authorities around the world.
Influencing industry working groups
We continue to sit on many industry and regulatory working groups providing input and regular contributions to emerging EASA regulatory developments. We are long-standing members of the European Human Factors Advisory Group (EHFAG) which provides advice to EASA and National Aviation Authorities (NAAs) on the multidisciplinary field of Human Factors. We also provide expert technical advice and guidance to the European Defence Agency (EDA) for the drafting of the European Military Airworthiness Requirements (EMARs) to guide the harmonisation of military airworthiness for the EDA’s 27 participating member states.
How we can help you move from prescriptive to performance-based regulation
Our clients benefit from our advanced understanding of organisational regulatory compliance management, preparing them for the latest global thinking on Performance Based Environment and how it can enable more effective implementation of regulatory requirements and the management of safety and its associated risks in order to maintain and continuously improve our industry’s outstanding safety record.
How we help improve skills and develop competence
We have assisted numerous organisations to demonstrate regulatory compliance whilst applying best-practice, forming a solid foundation on which to build continuous improvement and human-centred safety. In all, more than 120,000 aviation professionals are now more competent in their ability to understand and apply the regulations in their day-to-day working environments, having benefitted from our practical, fresh and stimulating approach to training and competence development. Our portfolio of training courses and consulting programmes is the most comprehensive in the industry, attracting staff and delegates from the world’s most influential aviation organisations and industry’s regulatory authorities.
