Emergency Response Planning Guide

The CANSO Emergency Response Planning Guide brings together best practices, knowledge and experience related to contingency plans and procedures from air navigation service providers (ANSP) around the world. The Guide helps ANSPs develop a formal emergency response plan that documents the orderly and efficient transition from normal to emergency operations and return to normal operations.

The material found in the CANSO Emergency Response Planning Guide provides CANSO Members with guidance that:

  • Transfers learning across the industry and builds a consistent approach to ANSP safety management practices across the globe
  • Allows ANSPs to plan for a comprehensive and coordinated emergency response at the corporate, group and project levels, assuring that risks to operational service delivery are reduced to ‘as low as reasonably practicable’ (ALARP) levels
  • Is aligned to the CANSO Standard of Excellence in Safety Management Systems (SoE in SMS) and International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) Annex 19, Safety Management.
