The concept of "safety management" is becoming more and more prominent in the aviation sector. Air vehicle airworthiness has been assured, historically, by the application of design specification and regulations. However, in order to maintain airworthiness and safety in future, ICAO has introduced new 2008 (Annex 6) regulations requiring operators in the civil aerospace regime to have generated and be operating a Safety Management System (SMS) within two years.

This event will provide all stake-holders with the tools necessary to complete the ‘jigsaw’ and meet this new challenge for global aviation authorities, by exploring the requirements and considering how other industries have developed SMS.
