Jordan, as a contracting state to the Convention on International Civil Aviation, recognizes that safety has always been the overriding consideration in the aviation industry, in line with article 44 of the Convention.
In this context, it is recognized that it is imperative to develop a safety management system to enhance the safety in the aviation sector.
The safety management system’s concept is based on the fact that there will always be hazards and risks, so proactive management is needed to identify and control these threats to safety before they lead to mishaps.
Safety Management System requirements will be the primary safety oversight document covering the way a certified airport operator manages safety. The airport operator should have the capability to analyze, assess all operational hazards and conduct risk analysis to ensure that all existing operations and all future changes, additions, or replacements are safe or will be at the acceptable risk level as established by the Director General of the Civil Aviation Authority (DGCAA).
A Safety Management System is a formal framework for integrating safety into day-to-day operations andincludes safety goals and performance targets, risk assessments, responsibilities and authorities, rules and procedures, and monitoring and evaluation processes".
The material in this publication is condensed from the ICAO Document 9585 “Safety Management Manual (SMM)” to introduce aerodrome safety management system principles, concepts, and requirements. This publication is intended to be a guide for airport operators to comply with the Jordan Civil Aviation Regulation JCAR Part 139 requirements when establishing a Safety Management System at the airport.
The purpose of this publication is to assist aerodrome operators in fulfilling the requirements of JCAR Part 139 with respect to the implementation of SMS.
The requirements set in this publication is applicable to all certified airports intended for public use.
