Safety Management Systems Awareness Training for US Airports

August 2011

Airports Council International announces the release of Safety Management Systems Awareness Training for US Airports.

SMS is a proactive approach to safety that has been adopted by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is proposing that all U.S. airports operating under 14 CFR Part 139 will be required implement an airport Safety Management System (SMS).

This course explores the major components of the proposed rule, as well as the FAA’s own internal SMS requirements imposed upon airports under FAA Order 5200.11 “FAA Airports (ARP) Safety Management System (SMS)”.
