Safety Performance and Safety Management System (SMS) characteristics achieved in 2019
In order to monitor the effectiveness of the integrated management system and service provision, UkSATSE uses a system of measurable indicators. All these indicators are based on the analysis in each domain of the integrated management system and are permanently reviewed. During 2019, UkSATSE achieved the following safety performance indicators:
Compliance of actual level to minimal level of safety in ATM system in 2019
1. ATM safety minima is a maximum acceptable probability of occurrence with direct ATM contribution classified by severity classes
2. Actual safety level is an indicator reflecting the ratio between the actual number of safety-related occurrences with direct ATM contribution classified by severity classes, per one flight, and the number of serviced flights during the period under assessment
The compliance of safety and quality management processes/procedures with the applied regulations and standards is confirmed within the certification processes performed by the National Supervisory Authority (NSA), European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and independent accredited organization in the field of ISO certification (System of International Certification).
The maturity of the SMS was assessed within the EUROCONTROL/CANSO Standard of Excellence in SMS Measurement. In 2019, UkSATSE entered the group of 27 countries with the highest SMS maturity rates (70-78%) in the European region. The assessment was based on 17 main components and elements of SMS. UkSATSE has best practice in the area of safety monitoring recognized at the European level.
All calculations related to the safety and quality performance indicators were made in accordance with the methodologies developed by UkSATSE and approved by the National Supervisory Authority.
