1 Federal Aviation Administration Purpose: Is the RSOO a success story? Michael Jennison Assistant Chief Counsel International Affairs ICAO Symposium on Regional Safety Oversight Organizations 26 Oct 201l

2 2 Federal Aviation Administration RSOO Symposium 28 October Disclaimer {my personal views only}

3 3 Federal Aviation Administration RSOO Symposium 28 October After decades of work... Are RSOOs meeting expectations? Is your RSOO meeting your expectations?

4 4 Federal Aviation Administration RSOO Symposium 28 October What are the purposes? Civil aviation safety oversight that meets international Standards Greatest possible uniformity in regulation Economies of scale [New!] Source of reliable, useful data for the Continuous Monitoring Approach (CMA)

5 5 Federal Aviation Administration RSOO Symposium 28 October

6 6 Federal Aviation Administration RSOO Symposium 28 October Civil aviation safety oversight that meets Standards We owe this to the public, but it is also a binding obligation How are we doing? –USOAP/IASA audits show improvements... but –A substantial portion of member States do not meet Standards in one or more critical elements Indispensable elements –Resources –Political will

7 7 Federal Aviation Administration RSOO Symposium 28 October Greatest possible uniformity in regulation We owe this to the industry How are we doing? –Every RSOO takes a different approach –RSOOs write uniform legislation and regs... –Member States alter them in implementation

8 8 Federal Aviation Administration RSOO Symposium 28 October Economies of scale This is the important one How are we doing? Comparison test... –Add the scale of aviation activity, the budget, and the staff of the RSOO members and compare with a comparable single State –Has the RSOO allowed its members to reduce staff and budget while getting the same (or better) results?

9 9 Federal Aviation Administration RSOO Symposium 28 October Source of reliable, useful CMA data This is less important, but still important Too soon to see how well we might be doing

10 10 Federal Aviation Administration RSOO Symposium 28 October

11 11 Federal Aviation Administration RSOO Symposium 28 October How do we get economies of scale? Member States delegate execution of their safety oversight responsibilities Ways to measure delegation –Breadth of oversight—how many Annexes? –Depth of oversight—how much authority?

12 12 Federal Aviation Administration RSOO Symposium 28 October Concluding thought Should your RSOO be an RCAA? In a Regional CAA... –There is complete delegation of oversight authority, ideally by treaty... and –Member State CAAs are field offices If so, how can you get there?
