Operational Authorization

​​Global requirements and guidance 

Operators that wish to continue to take advantage of performance-based lateral and longitudinal separation standards, in airspace where they are available, will need to obtain a PBCS operational authorization for applicable RCP and RSP specifications. This PBCS authorization will certify that the aircraft and operator meets both the communication and surveillance requirements allocated to them. This will require the State to have a PBCS policy based on the requirements of Annex 6 and guidance contained in Doc 9869. A PBCS operationl authorizataion should be obtained from an assessment of the required elements in the operations manual (OM). However, this requirement does not preclude a State to issue a specific approval and document it in the Operations Specifications (Ops Spec), associated with the air operator certificat (AOC)​.
