Response text:

CASA has recently completed a review of its surveillance methods, particularly in the General Aviation environment. This has resulted in some changes to planning methodology, some modifications to surveillance activities and increased use of risk based methodology. Procedures are also being established to improve the communication channels between CASA and Airservices Australia, to facilitate the provision between the organisations of relevant information.
