ARSA Seeks Consistency In EASA SMS Requirements

On May 22, ARSA submitted comments to a European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) Notice of Proposed Amendment (NPA) incorporating safety management system (SMS) requirements into EASA part 145.

While supporting a single SMS covering multiple regulated activities (e.g., design, production, maintenance), ARSA suggested numerous changes that would ensure requirements are clear, consistent, and in line with industry standard practices. For instance, the NPA uses the terms “compliance monitoring” and “safety” in places where “quality” would be better understood. Furthermore, the association encouraged EASA to clarify that the portion of the regulation dealing with Fatigue Risk Management does not apply to facilities outside the European Union.
