Safety Management Systems

UAS Regulatory Requirements & Approvals

The implementation of a Safety Management System (SMS) has long been a requirement for most sectors of manned aviation industry. It defines a systematic approach to managing, assuring and promoting safety.

Whilst not yet a commonplace regulatory requirement for the unmanned industry, importing best practices in safety management from manned aviation is an obvious objective for forward thinking, pro-active UAS operators, manufacturers and UTMs.

We can help you by:

  • Identifying an SMS framework proportionate to the size and complexity of your
  • Working with you to define appropriate policies and procedures, and delivering the associated documentation (your Safety Management Manual).
  • Providing guidance and advice during and after and implementation.
  • Providing safety management training for key post holders where needed.

“Across Safety has provided excellent value for us when we’ve needed external support the most. Thanks to their specialist knowledge and expertise in obtaining unmanned aircraft regulatory approvals, Skyports has been able to secure BVLOS operational authorisation from the UK CAA to deploy our delivery drones for the NHS in the Scotland as part of the response to COVID-19, including becoming the first drone operator in the UK to be granted permission by the CAA to carry dangerous goods by unmanned aircraft. We cannot recommend Across Safety enough and they will continue to be our go-to unmanned aviation consultants in the future.”
