33 33 In order to ensure the efficiency of the actions that have been undertaken for certification, blank audits will be scheduled for all the airports prior to the airports certification application. 2.8-. Airports blank Audits

34 34 2.9-. Application for airport certification An airport certification application will be submitted by the Office de lAviation Civile et des Aéroports (OACA) to the General Direction of Civil Aviation (GDCA) for each airport in conformity to the format indicated in the regulation in force. The airport manual, developed by the concerned airport, is an integral part of the application.

35 35 2.10-.SMS Implementation ICAO provisions in this section, recommend that a certified airport should implement a safety management system. To this end, OACA has developed a planning for an SMS implementation comprising notably : A safety management plan ; Procedures on data exchange in safety and operating matters ; Mechanisms to follow for hazard prevention and continuous supervision of the safety level ; An implementation plan of this programme will be developed during the 1st term of 2007.

36 36 3-.Management and Supervision of the Certification Process The Management and supervision of the Certification approach at level of OACA require : An appropriate organisation An appropriate organisation An efficient data exchange An efficient data exchange

37 37 The setting up of a steering committee for the certification process, the role of which is to : Follow up the development of the manuals Coordinate information exchange between the airports and the concerned Departments Provide the airports and the concerned Departments with the documents related to the Airport Manuals development The reading and validation of the different Procedures Manuals developed for this purpose 3.1- An appropriate organisation:

38 38 Garantee an instant data exchange between the different interveners Ensure considerable gains in time, energy, sheet and ink consumption The development of a secured website reserved for the works of airport manuals development, endowed with sub-spaces for each airport and concerned department ; Enlargement and effective use of the CPS system (intra-net) to all the interveners 3.2- An efficient Data Exchange

40 40 Conclusion The civil airport certification process is a heavy operation, requiring stringent implication, at all levels, of all the interveners on the airport platform. The warranty for the application and respect of the national and international regulatory provisions in matters of airport certification requires a collective awareness, notably in matters of coordination, which remains the main condition for the success of the whole process.
