SSP Developing Performance Based Metrics – 1 Day


The primary focus of the State SSP is to achieve compliance with ICAO requirements and to reduce high-consequence events where such issues are evident. The acceptable level of safety performance for a given SSP, once developed, is a manifestation of what the State considers appropriate within the context of its own aviation system. A State‘s acceptable level of safety performance (ALoSP) also expresses the minimum safety objectives acceptable to the oversight authority to be achieved by the aggregate service providers under its authority.

This 1-day training considers the methods of gathering and analyzing safety-related data.
