Compliance Monitoring – Certificated Aerodromes
EU regulation (Commission Regulation (EU) No. 139/2014) requires that aerodrome operators have a Compliance Monitoring System (CMS) in place and requires that “the aerodrome management system shall include a formal system to monitor compliance of the organisation with the relevant requirements.”
To reinforce this requirement, the CAA has published an Information Notice (IN-2017/027) with the stated aim “to help guide aerodromes in the development of a structured audit process, dependent upon the size and complexity of the aerodrome’s operation, which should be set out in the Aerodrome Manual.”
Importantly, the CAA also states that the independence of the CMS should be established by ensuring that audits and inspections are carried out by personnel not responsible for the function being audited. This covers all areas of an aerodrome’s operation and the CAA has been clear about the need to see comprehensive and well delivered audit processes. This is a significant obligation for an aerodrome and may well require additional resource to facilitate the compliant delivery in line with CAA requirements.
