CASA - Statement of Expectations.

The new Government “Statement of Expectations” for CASA is available here:

https://www.legislation.gov.au/Detai...00977/Download

I was not aware of the existence of such a document.

At first reading it appears reasonable to me, not that I count for anything. It seems, reading between the lines, to address the issues that GA has been going on about. I haven’t made a comparison with the old statement yet.

Perhaps it’s time to be optimistic for a change.

I spent (a mostly miserable) 10 years in the public service as a senior regulatory officer. My program area was also required to comply with a Ministerial Statement of Expectations.

ALL regulatory program areas in my (very large) department wrote the expectations themselves, then forwarded these to a program area which published for the responsible Minister to sign.

You’re fooling yourself if you think CASA didn’t draft these expectations themselves.

The Statement of Expectations should start with: "Subject to the safety of air navigation being the most important consideration (which as a matter of practicality means whatever CASA chooses it to mean) ....".

That's the law.

The Statement of Expectations is not law. It's meaningless fluff.

Another thread?

Really?

Yawn.

This is becoming an echo chamber for a few familiar voices.

Then complain to the moderators.

In the meantime, how much are you willing to bet that CASA will deliver on the expectations in the statement? I'll bet you London to a brick that it won't. We've heard it all before, many times.

Oh, regulators (including CASA) are also responsible for assessing and measuring their performance against their expectations... been there, done that. Of course they will achieve their targets.

The system is so broken, I don't find it funny.

My experience as well (another area, not CASA) - we always drafted the Statement of Expectations - and the Minister always accepted our draft.

So no surprises here - "safety" is paramount.

finalise the remaining new Civil Aviation Safety Regulations
when? Part 61 is still broken and guidance material far from complete.

continue effective engagement with industry in the lead up to the implementation of the flight operations suite of regulations, including on the issue of passenger limitations under Part 135 and on the development of associated regulatory and guidance material.
the last draft Part 91 MOS was unworkable for airplanes certified to early versions of FAR 23 and earlier - I'm not optimistic that the final version will be sensible so look forward to the guidance material. eg takeoff performance data in the manual (for several types) is only available for fine pitch propellers whereas most examples have coarser pitch propellers therefore nil approved data as required by Part 91 MOS (draft).

undertake effective and ongoing engagement with the aviation industry to create a collaborative relationship based on a foundation of mutual understanding and respect.

There should be an accompanying ‘action plan’ on how the statement of expectation goals are to be achieved, including dates. Some information can be found here: https://www.casa.gov.au/standard-pag...016-17-2020-21

Not all of the actions/goals have been set out out in the ‘SMART format’, hardly surprising from CASA

It's appalling, but not surprising, to watch the sly crab-walking away from any reference to the completion of the regulatory reform program:
[F]inalise the remaining new Civil Aviation Safety Regulations
Setting aside the fact that many of the new regulations are impenetrably complex, there continue to be the 'old' 1988 regulations that remain a fundamental part of the Heath Robinson contraption that is laughably called a regulatory regime.

And speaking of 'laughable', only the shameless could describe the still-uncompleted 1998 regulations as 'new'.

On a Pareto Analysis, CASA has done 20% of the work. But even that is misleading. There is no longer the critical mass of expertise necessary to finish it.

The regulatory reform program continues to drift along forever, and these shameless people will keep sticking their hands out to be paid for 'running' it.

Nothing in there about CAsA and Its employees abiding by the Rules of Law that are supposedly applicable to ALL citizens of this country.
Nothing in there about CAsA admitting any wrong, or being accountable for their failed actions, or ensuring their staff DO abide by the Law., or being accountable..
Nothing in there that leads me to believe that the CAsA (powder puff) "Code of Conduct" that contains no provisions therein ( as does the PSC ) for criminal behavior , so just continues to be the useless and ignored motherhood BS that it is.

McCormack can spruik.all he likes till the cows come home, but CAsA as a free range Soviet, with NO independent over-sighting agency, will just carry on as usual.
Ministers come and Ministers go, but CasA goes on forever, as does the regs "re-write".
