COVID-19 Safety Operational Measures

Alleviations to the Standards of the Annexes, as entered into the CCRD, were established as interim measures to support continued operations during the initial stages of the COVID-19 pandemic.  As we move cautiously towards the "new normal", these alleviations and the guidance for their use provided in the associated Quick Reference Guides (QRGs) are being replaced with planning tools, approaches and guidance for the recommencement of operations in line with the requirements of the SARPs.  This updated information is now provided in relevant sections on the Roadmap to Ops Normal website.


*****The transition from alleviations and the use of the CCRD will occur across a three-month period from 1 April to 30 June 2021.*****

What States need to do during the three-month transition period from 1 April to 30 June 2021:


      • States that have issued alleviations with temporary differences are encouraged to return to compliance with the SARPs as soon as possible.
      • The CCRD system will remain active until its closure on 30 June 2021. 
      • Where exceptional circumstances exist that preclude compliance with the SARPs, States are requested to use the TE process instead of the CCRD from 1 April (State letter AN11/55 - 21/27).
      • States are requested to note that, where relevant, the information provided in the Quick Reference Guides (QRGs) that supported the use of alleviations provided on the COVID-19 Operational Measures webpages has been transferred and updated to the TE pages of the Roadmap to Ops Normal website.
      • The acceptability of other States differences (as filed in the CCRD) has been used to initially populate the TE Acceptability to Other States list that forms part of the TE process. States should prioritize reviewing this information and providing updates in relation to their acceptance of other States TEs as appropriate.
