The Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) will develop a risk profile for the general aviation maintenance sector.
According to the CASA Briefing Newsletter published today, the task will kick-off with a survey of maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) organisations to be conducted in May.
"The survey will collect valuable data to accurately inform risk analysis and should only take 20 to 30 minutes to complete," CASA has said.
"Sector risk profiles are an important tool in understanding the safety challenges and issues for different segments of the aviation community. They present a picture of the current key safety risks facing a sector and assist in developing a deeper understanding of the effects of these risks.
"The profiles look at how the level of risks can be reduced and managed by the participants in each sector and CASA, as well as evaluating the effectiveness of risk treatments through a set of safety performance indicators.
"CASA is also reviewing previous safety risk profiles for aerial mustering and aerodromes, with updated reports to be issued later in 2019."
CASA wants to encourage organisations to take part in the survey to help develop the risk profile.
