Safety Recommendation

The Australian Transport Safety Bureau recommends that Airservices Australia ensure that controllers are aware of the importance of the separation assurance provisions of MATS 4.1.1.4, particularly in the application of procedural separation.

Initial response
Date issued: 20 July 2006
Response from: Airservices Australia
Action status: Closed - Partially Accepted
Response text:

As a result of issues previously identified by Airservices Australia just prior to this recommendation, a number of systemic controls were introduced to ensure that controllers are aware of the importance of the separation assurance provisions of MATS 4.1.1.4. These measures included amendment to MATS 4.1.1.4 to reflect the full intent of Separation Assurance, the development and delivery of a refresher training module on separation assurance, and the inclusion of separation assurance criteria in Performance Assessment Reports. There is no recent evidence of the existence of an ongoing systemic issue.
