With the number of flights set to rise, more demand is being placed on an already busy system. For the UK CAA to achieve its strategic objectives and improve what are already very high levels of safety, the UK CAA needed to transform to keep up with rising demand.
- The UK CAA has adopted a 2 year programme to implement RBS across the broad spectrum of the UK industry.
- Through a gap analysis, the UK CAA identified the objectives and strategy for a transformation project to deliver RBS.
- Close cooperation with industry was essential to ensure the chosen approach was beneficial to the whole aviation system.
- New processes and tools have been implemented and training provided to help transform the mind-set and capability of Regulators.
- The UK CAA can clearly identify the safety outcomes of its actions. Resources can now be targeted strategically to the areas with the greatest potential to deliver safety improvements.
- UK CAA safety experts are able to take pro-active steps to manage risk through a better understanding of risks in the total aviation system.
- The UK CAA Board can make more strategic decisions based on real safety data and developments using an integrated safety risk reporting and management system.
- The UK CAA is seen as a more credible partner to industry rather than a pure compliance controller.
- Improved data streams and comparability
