Ensure Your Organization’s Compliance with the SMS Framework and Applicability as Defined in ICAO Annex 19

Meet Your Compliance Deadline with Confidence

The EU regulatory framework continues to evolve and now includes Part-21 and Part-145 organizations, incorporating the Safety Management System (SMS) and the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) Annex 19’s Recommended Practices (SARPs). This represents a step towards more consistent and comprehensive safety management across the aviation industry’s different sectors.

At Aeroclass, we focus on assisting your organization to understand the requirements and navigate the regulatory updates effectively. We bring specialized expertise in interpreting and applying the core SMS principles to the unique parameters of your operation. Our team is dedicated to providing insights and strategies that not only ensure compliance but also optimize your safety management practices.

More about SMS for Part-21 Organizations

By 7 March 2025, all entities with design organization approval (DOA) and production organization approval (POA), as per EASA Part 21 regulations, must have implemented an SMS. This deadline also applies to manufacturers holding a European technical standard order authorization (ETSOA) and organizations involved in designing auxiliary power units (APUs) under Part 21. This mandate signifies a major step in enhancing safety in the design and production stages of aviation, requiring these organizations to comply with the updated safety management protocols by the specified date.

More about SMS for Part-145 Organizations

All maintenance organizations approved under EASA Part-145 are required to have an SMS in place by 2 December 2024. This directive focuses on elevating the safety standards in maintenance operations, ensuring that these organizations identify and manage potential risks effectively. The deadline underlines the urgency for these organizations to align their maintenance practices with the new SMS requirements, thereby contributing to the overall safety and efficiency of aviation operations.
