Canada requires airlines to implement safety management systems
15 June 2005

Transport Canada announced regulatory amendments to further improve the safety performance of Canadian air operators and increase accountability in the aviation sector through the implementation of safety management systems. Amendments to the Canadian Aviation Regulations require air operators to implement safety management systems in their organizations and appoint executives who are accountable for safety. These systems will make organizations more accountable for day-to-day operations and permit them to use the most appropriate system to improve their safety performance. (Transport Canada)
