Arup and Civil Aviation Authority International (CAAi), the technical cooperation arm of the UK Civil Aviation Authority, have signed a landmark agreement to partner on shaping a better world by raising the standards of aviation across the globe.
Signed by Arup’s Director of Operational Performance Stephen Pollard and CAAi’s Managing Director Maria Rueda, the partnership promotes the sharing of knowledge and skills that will enhance aviation standards, security and safety, as well as improving regulatory environmental performance of their clients.
It means that Arup and CAAi will be able to offer clients, including safety and security regulators, a broader range of complementary services. This includes improving a State’s compliance with the International Civil Aviation Organisation’s Safety and Security Standards and Recommended Practices (SARPS) and assisting investors in better understanding their future commitments associated with safety and security risk and compliance.
Bringing together CAAi’s and Arup’s aviation regulatory specialists, as well as other expertise from organisational and change management and business investment advisory teams, the multi-disciplinary approach will result in sustainable safety and security outcomes for clients’ aviation markets, in particular regulatory and oversight capabilities.
