In order to launch the work on the development and implementation of safety enhancement initiatives (SEIs) in the part of the ICAO EUR Region which is not covered by the regulatory framework of the European Union (EU)/European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), the meeting decided to create four groups:

  • The “IE-REST Pilot Training Group”, to address issues related to pilot training;
  • The “IE-REST Runway Safety Group”, to address issues related to runway safety, including the support to the establishment and operation of Local Runway Safety Teams (LRSTs);
  • The “IE-REST Flight Data Analysis and Air Operator Safety Management System Group”, to address issues related to Flight Data Analysis and air operators’ Safety Management Systems (SMS); and
  • The “IE-REST Taxonomy and Safety Data Analysis Group”, to address issues related to safety data taxonomy and analysis. 

The four groups, for which experts volunteered to act as Rapporteurs, will now start their work, and the IE-REST will meet again in Chisinau (Republic of Moldova) from 25 to 27 September 2013.
