What is Compliance Monitoring?
Compliance monitoring in aviation refers to the systematic process of evaluating and ensuring adherence to regulatory requirements, standards, and policies within the aviation industry. It involves the monitoring and assessment of various operational aspects, such as safety practices, security measures, maintenance procedures, training programmes, and regulatory compliance. Compliance monitoring aims to identify any deviations or non-compliance with established regulations and standards, allowing for corrective actions to be taken promptly. This process typically involves regular inspections, audits, data analysis, and documentation reviews to verify compliance with applicable laws and regulations. By implementing effective compliance monitoring programmes, aviation organisations can maintain a high level of safety, operational efficiency, and regulatory compliance throughout their operations.
This course is designed to reinforce delegate understanding of skills necessary to manage, plan, conduct and report a wide range of audits in support of regulatory compliance.
This course is designed as an auditor training course for those in the aviation industry whose role involves the management and conduct of auditing / compliance monitoring, or those involved with the conduct of safety regulatory oversight of organisations.
This training course will include the following topics:
- Basic management systems, audit / compliance monitoring principles and relative responsibilities.
- Managing the audit process
- The audit planning process
- Interview and questioning techniques
- Evaluating and reporting of audit findings
- The corrective action and audit close-out process
By the end of this course it is expected that delegates will have an improved awareness and understanding of:
- Basic management systems and auditing / compliance monitoring principles, together with relative responsibilities
- Audit process management in support of regulatory oversight or internal auditing / compliance monitoring
- Planning and conduct of regulatory oversight audits, developing audit checklists and audit planning data for on-site audit activities
- How to obtain evidence of compliance and the establishment of process effectiveness
- Objective reporting of audit findings
- Corrective action, verification and audit close-out processes
Delegates do not require any existing experience of auditing / compliance monitoring in an aviation environment, however they should have some familiarity with the EU Aviation Regulations or their National Aviation regulatory framework.
