The FAA is currently developing proposed regulation that will extend to all 14 CFR part 121 operators to implement a Safety Management System (SMS). Although this proposal extends only to part 121 operators, the FAA has developed these general requirements with the possibility that in the future, they could be applied to other FAA-regulated entities, such as part 135 operators and part 145 repair stations. The broad application of this regulation to organizations with varying capabilities and size has many in the industry concerned with how to meet the regulatory requirement across a broad scale of service providers. SMS Scalability is about developing compliance metrics such that service providers with a single owner/operator as well as those with over a thousand employees can meet the regulatory requirements.
About the Conference
To address this scalability issue with Part 145 repair stations, the Center for Aviation Safety Research at Parks College, Saint Louis University will be hosting a Safety Management Systems Scalability Conference on April 26 & 27, 2011. This conference will bring together a representative population of domestic Part 145 repair station operators and FAA representatives with the purpose of discussing scalable solutions to SMS regulation.
