SMS cost model validation and link to safety maturity
Date: 09/06/2010

On 2 June 2010, EUROCONTROL chose CIS as main executant of "SMS cost model validation and link to safety maturity" project. The new project is a natural continuation of SMS Cost Model project which was accepted very well from aviation community in 2008/2009.

The present project is a part of the ESP+ (The European Safety Programme) programme which focuses on priority safety-improvement actions agreed with and implemented by stakeholders in a central and coordinated manner. It is designed to ensure that Air Traffic Management (ATM) safety is safeguarded throughout the period of major development and change currently under way.

Any future development of ATM is now to be considered from a performance-based viewpoint. Developments in the Single European Sky area impose certain safety aspects as an integral part of the performance approach. Within this approach, comprehensive measurement systems, as an element of the quantitative safety assessment, are essential for adequate feedback, report progress and support for decision-making in the area of safety.
