Safety Management Systems - Useful Information


The SMS regulations (Part 140) were promulgated by the Minister of Transport on 30 June 2012 and came into effect on 1 August 2012. This means that SMS is now enforceable and all aviation organizations are to ensure that their SMS manuals are approved and that their SMS is fully implemented by 31 July 2015.
