The Enforcement Policy is adopted in satisfying one of the many requirements associated with the establishment of a State Safety Programme which the Civil Aviation Authority of Sri Lanka is required to set up in pursuance of Section 116 of the Civil Aviation Act No. 14 of 2010.
Enforcement decisions must: In the above circumstances, the CAASL may deal with such non-compliance or violations according to the established enforcement procedures as deemed appropriate.
The enforcement policy of Civil Aviation Authority of Sri Lanka (CAASL) is aimed at promoting compliance with aviation safety regulations and requirements through enforcement functions in an equitable manner.
The implementation of safety management systems (SMS) requires the CAASL to have an equitable and discretionary enforcement approach in order to support the SSP-SMS framework.
In order to develop enforcement policies and procedures that allow service providers or operators to deal with, and resolve, certain events involving safety deviations, internally, within the context of the service provider‘s SMS, and to the satisfaction of the authority. Intentional contraventions of the Civil Aviation Act and Regulations, Rules, Implementing Standards and Directives made thereunder will be investigated and may be subject to conventional enforcement action where appropriate. There should be clear provisions in the enforcement framework for due consideration and segregation between premeditated violations from unintentional errors or deviations.
The enforcement policy statement and associated enforcement procedures apply to service providers operating in accordance with ICAO Annex 1 — Personnel Licensing; Annex 6 — Operation of Aircraft, Part I — International Commercial Air Transport — Aeroplanes, and Part III — International Operations — Helicopters; Annex 8— Airworthiness of Aircraft; Annex 11 — Air Traffic Services; and Annex 14 — Aerodromes, Volume I — Aerodrome Design and Operations and Annex-18-Safe Transport of Dangerous Goods by Air.
Enforcement decisions must be proportional to the identified breaches and the safety risks they underlie, based on three principles:
The CAA Enforcement policy is not applicable if there is evidence of a deliberate effort to conceal non-compliance.
The CAA Enforcement policy is not applicable if the service provider or an operator fails to maintain an acceptable SMS or its agreed safety performance.
The CAA Enforcement policy is not applicable if the service provider or an operator is deemed by the CAASL as a recurrent violator.
Enforcement decisions must:
In the above circumstances, the CAASL may deal with such non-compliance or violations according to the established enforcement procedures as deemed appropriate.
