EASA Part-CAMO Safety Management Overview

TR97 | 1 day

Safety management has been a commonly used term in commercial aviation for a few years now. The Continuing Airworthiness Regulation (EU)1321/2014 has been amended by the adoption of Opinion 06/2016 which introduces the concept of safety management into Part-M. Although safety management is a familiar term, what does it actually mean to those managing the continuing airworthiness of their fleets? What terminology is going to be introduced into legislation? Do I need to do anything differently as a result? Our 1 day workshop will answer these and more questions in a friendly open environment, enabling you to gain a deeper understanding of the changes required to your organisations.

Frequently asked questions

I’ve heard we are required to have an SMS. How does this affect my CAMO?

Managing Safety should not be considered a bolt-on extra. Your CAMO will have to introduce a Management System (if it does not already have one) and within that manage safety. You will need to demonstrate compliance with this requirement, changes to your CAME and associated policies and procedures are necessary. By guiding you through the requirements this workshop enables you to continue with business as usual and achieve safer outcomes.

Do I need to re-apply for a Part-CAMO approval if I am already an approved CAMO?

Yes, you will. The transition from subpart-G to Part-CAMO requires the Competent Authorities to approve organisations in accordance with Part-CAMO. The transition period is effective from 24 March 2020 and you have until 24 September 2021 to gain your new approval. This workshop will help you develop a plan to achieve this.

Do I need to hire new staff?

As a minimum you will need a person who is responsible for the management of safety. Whether this is a new stand-alone role, or covered by existing staff, depends on the size, complexity and type of operations you are supporting. It also depends on how you wish to integrate Safety Management into your current structure. This workshop can help you assess the scope of work involved in the management of safety and how it may affect your existing capacity.
