State Safety Programme Implementation (SSP)

Background

CAAi has provided SSP assistance to a number of States including large, medium and small organisations. A collaborative approach between CAAi, the State and industry has been key to successfully identify areas of improvement.

The transition to a fully operational ICAO compliant SSP can take time, but with an appropriate SSP implementation action-plan and drive to succeed, this can be achievable within 2 to 4 years, enabling States to manage safety oversight in a more cost-effective manner with improved and measurable safety outcomes.

Typical Challenges
  • Creating an environment where change is perceived essential to achieve improvements in safety performance.
  • Empowerment of an Accountable Manager responsible for State safety.
Approach
  • To follow guidance provided by ICAO
  • Engage with the State to see how far they wish to build on the traditional ‘compliance-based’ approach to regulation and develop/implement a more ‘performance-based’ approach.
  • Analyse a State’s compliance to SSP
  • Develop an SSP as a management system for the management of safety by the State.
    Implement the SSP to achieve an acceptable level of safety in civil aviation.
Benefits
  • Efforts to mitigate safety risks are targeted more effectively
  • Response times for significant safety issues reduced
  • Improved safety performance to help a State’s aviation industry mature, supporting
    future economic growth and a State’s prosperity.
  • Compliance with Annex 19
