Monitoring of Changes in ATM/ANS Part 1 [SAF-CHG-MC-1]

Classroom Course
  • Tests
  • Case studies with experts
  • Practical exercises

The Monitoring of Changes in ATM/ANS Part 1 course builds on the knowledge provided by the Management and Oversight of Changes in ATM/ANS course (SAF-CHG-Intro). The course covers all aspects of the safety monitoring of changes in operations. It addresses questions relating to:

  • the maintenance/updating of safety cases and/or safety support cases;
  • the follow-up of system behaviour/specifications and safety support requirements during operations for non-ATSPs;
  • the follow-up of safety criteria (objectives) and safety requirements during operations for ATSPs; and
  • the migration/move to a unit safety dashboard/case.

The course is consistent with Regulation No. 2017/373 (laying down common requirements for service and the oversight in air traffic management/air navigation services and other air traffic management network functions) and its relevant Acceptable Means of Compliance (AMC) and Guidance Material (GM). It is also consistent with the provisions to be repealed, namely Regulation No 482/2008, Implementing Regulations No 1034/2011 and No 1035/2011.
Note: This course does not cover safety survey aspects which may be useful in the context of the monitoring of changes. Please refer to the SAF-SAS-1 course for more information.

Depending on the interest shown (a survey will be conducted at the end of each SAF-CHG-MC-1 course session), a follow-up course or workshop (Part 3) may be organised at a later stage, which will provide participants with an opportunity to present their experience in the monitoring of changes in ATM/ANS and/or in the maintenance/updating of safety (support) cases, and to obtain feedback from the course instructors and other participants.
