Regulations

CASA Regulations:

The regulations are many and varied and those with particular impact on the industry will be discussed here. These are very complex and have had a very mixed change process over a 25 year period. The cost, which is buried in the Annual reports, is over $250m.

engrish please casa

The following relates to the CAO 48 [in part], which is subject to a disallowance motion by Senator Nick Xenophon:

Quote:
Heads of power

Regulation 5.55 of CAR 1988, and its replacement in regulation 210A, were used among the heads of power for the new CAO 48.1 to facilitate the eventual repeal of CAO Part 48 which was made under regulation 5.55 and which, from 1 September 2014 (not 4 December 2013), is continued in force under regulation 210A by virtue of regulation 335.

Other than to facilitate that eventual repeal, and for ensuring that CAO Part 48 would no longer apply to new and early opt-in AOC holders covered by the new CAO 48.1, regulation 5.55 of CAR 1988 was not required as a head of power for the making of the new CAO 48.1 because conditions on AOCs were used as the vehicle to impose the new fatigue risk management obligations.

It is interesting to note:

  1. casa now does quote the head of power;
  2. casa keeps the ability to read this stuff in an absolute mess;

Move on to US-FAR’s or NZ-Regs now and get rid of this rubbish.

casa is out of touch with the Aviation Industry Part 139

This was published today and note the errors that are in this.

I guess this is just like the “casa exemptions – all 1700 of them” – They just cannot get it right.

Project AS 14/02 – Miscellaneous Changes to MOS Part 139 – Aerodromes

Issue

Since the introduction of the Manual of Standards Part 139 (MOS 139), a number of issues have arisen in regard to the misinterpretation of some rules and the misapplication of others. Application of the MOS has also lead to the discovery of some errors within MOS 139 that need addressing.

This new project aims to introduce a few new provisions to allow more flexibility in regard to the application of some rules and also to clarify others so as to more accurately reflect the intent of existing rules.
Issues that have come to light include discrepancies or misinterpretation of the following standards:

  • Apron Parking Clearances
  • Apron Lighting Levels
  • Approach Slope Guidance for large aircraft
  • Wind Direction Indicators
  • Location of Movement Area Guidance Signs (MAGS)

A number of minor editorial changes are also to be addressed that will clarify existing rules and negate the need for operators to hold exemptions due to non-compliance with the existing wording of MOS 139. Addressing these issues will clarify CASA’s requirements, and increase industry compliance with minimal to no cost to industry.

lets just have the US-FAR’s or the NZ Regs now.

A new casa portal pops up today [13/1/2014] at:

Civil Aviation Safety Authority – Regulation reform

Is this the casa response to the Forsyth ASRR??

What a nightmare. Its a quagmire of doublespeak. The amendment summary is vague. You need to go to the COMLAW site and read the actual regulations to understand it. Makes you wonder if the author of the summary understands the changes.

My recollection is a bit hazy and I threw out most of the documents when the changes were scrapped – but none of the serious problems – that CASA didn’t have an answer for – at the industry briefing I went to seem to be addressed by the changes. Or if they have been addressed its been camouflaged to hide the enormity of the original stuff up.

Is anyone across the detail yet?
