Remarks of CANSO Director General, Jeff Poole, to the CANSO Global ATM Safety Conference in Bangkok on 26 January 2015

26 January 2015

In a speech to the annual CANSO Global ATM Safety Conference in Bangkok, hosted by AEROTHAI, CANSO Director General, Jeff Poole, announced the publication of the CANSO Safety Management System Implementation Guide. This will make a major contribution to improving safety across the air traffic management (ATM) industry and provides a comprehensive, step-by-step standard that CANSO Members can use to implement their safety management system. The work to implement safety management systems is one of five priority areas on which CANSO will work with ICAO, States and industry partners to improve safety in air traffic management, the others being to reduce runway incursions and excursions; to improve incident reporting by protecting sources of information; to establish globally harmonised safety performance indicators; and to improve the exchange of safety information and data across the air transport industry.
