Canada: SMS required for airports and ATS
23 December 2007

The Canadian Aviation Regulations will be amended to increase accountability in the aviation sector.
These amendments require airports and organizations providing air traffic services 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 while allowing them flexibility to determine the most effective means of improving safety performance within the regulatory framework.
