Page Content This site provides additional guidance and examples to further support the implementation of Standards related to the OPS area. Guidance for COVID OPS: At the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, alleviations to the Standards of the Annexes were established as interim measures to support continued operations. As interim measures, such alleviations could not sustain safe operations indefinitely and a return to normal operations (albeit a 'new' normal) is now underway. Consequently, those alleviations, and the guidance for use provided in the associated QRGs, were withdrawn. This section provides guidance for the recommencement of operations conducted within the constraints posed by COVID-19 conditions but that remain in line with the requirements of the SARPs. Guidance for normal OPS In this section, you will find additional material intended to enhance and further explain the implementation of the Standards of various Annexes and PANS regardless of COVID or any other exceptional circumstances. This guidance, therefore, focuses on supporting everyday operations.
