The roadmap serves as an action plan to assist the aviation community in developing RASPs and NASPs, in line with the GASP goals, through a structured, common frame of reference for all relevant stakeholders. The global aviation safety roadmap outlines specific safety enhancement initiatives (SEIs) associated with the GASP goals and targets, as well as the global high-risk categories of occurrences (G-HRCs). 

Each SEI includes a set of actions that stakeholders may use to develop and implement specific action plans. States and regions, in collaboration with industry, should use the roadmap to support or complement, as applicable, national and regional safety management activities and develop specific SEIs to support the strategy presented in their NASPs and RASPs respectively. 

The use of the global aviation safety roadmap as the basis for RASPs and NASPs enhances coordination, thus reducing inconsistencies and duplication of effort.

ORG & OPS Roadmaps


The global aviation safety roadmap is composed of two pieces:


1) Organizational challenges — this part of the roadmap referred to as the ORG roadmap, presented in Appendix A provides SEIs to meet GASP goals (and associated targets) related to States' safety oversight capabilities and the implementation of SSPs, as well as industry's implementation of SMS, and contains two distinct components, in line with the GASP goals, to address safety management responsibilities:

                                1)            State safety oversight system; and

                                2)            SSP, including service providers' SMS.


2) Operational safety risks — this part of the roadmap referred to as the OPS roadmap, presented in Appendix B provides SEIs to meet the GASP goal (and associated target) related to a continuous reduction of operational safety risks, and actions to address the G-HRCs presented in the GASP.


The ORG and OPS Roadmaps may be found in Appendix A and B of the Global Aviation Safety Roadmap (Doc 10161), respectively.
