The Assessment of Changes in the ATM/ANS Part 1 course builds on the knowledge acquired in the Management & Oversight of Changes in ATM/ANS course (SAF-CHG-INTRO).
The course provides an overview of the principal steps to be undertaken during the assessment, from a safety perspective, of a change to the ATM/ANS functional system, covering both its safety assessment and its safety support assessment, if appropriate, as per Regulation No. 2016/1377 (laying down common requirements for providers of ATM/ANS and other ATM network functions and their oversight) and its relevant Acceptable Means of Compliance (AMC) and Guidance Material (GM).
It combines "theory" and practical exercises based on real, up-to-date ATM/ANS examples of changes.
The course covers the following topics:
  • safety assessment of changes to the ATM/ANS functional system
  • safety support assessment of changes to the ATM/ANS functional system
  • interactions between safety assessments and safety support assessments
  • Overview of Regulation No. 2017/373 and its AMC/GM in relation to safety (support) assessments of ATM/ANS changes
  • main changes resulting from Regulation No. 2017/373 and its AMC/GM, compared with the regulations it will repeal, as regards safety (support) assessments of changes to the ATM/ANS functional system.
Prerequisites
The SAF-CHG-Intro course must be successfully completed before attending this course. The LEX-SES-E e-learning module is recommended, so as to be better aware of:
 
  • the EU regulatory framework and rulemaking mechanisms
  • the key rulemaking concepts described in Basic Regulation No. 216/2008, in particular Certification Specifications (CS), Acceptable Means of Compliance (AMC) and Guidance Material (GM)
  • relevant EU legislation pertaining to the safety management of changes, and where this fits into the overall legislative framework
  • participants should read through the elevant EU legislation pertaining to ATM/ANS changes, as described in the course syllabus.
