The Civil Aviation Safety Authority has created a register of experts that are willing to sit on Technical Working Groups for the Aviation Safety Advisory Panel (ASAP).
ASAP is a body of aviation community and industry representatives that provides feedback to CASA on safety regulation matters, and is supported by Technical Working Groups (TWGs) made up of subject-matter experts.
"Where established, TWGs will provide industry members and relevant technical experts with a forum to provide input on specific technical issues and proposals being considered by the ASAP," CASA has said.
"Each TWG will be formed as required and disbanded at the completion of the assigned tasks."
Expressions of Interest from aviation experts is being collected via an on-line survey-style questionnaire, which CASA hopes will bring to the TWGs the diversity of skills, experience and qualifications needed to properly evaluate the integrity and impact of regulatory change.
"With several significant developments on CASA’s immediate horizon, including the planned reform of the flying operations regulations and a post implementation review of aircraft maintenance engineer licensing, establishing a register of suitable and available experts is a priority."
Industry experts willing to participate can lodge their Expression of Interest on the CASA website.
