Regional Operational Safety Committee

The ACI Asia-Pacific Regional Operational Safety Committee is a standing technical body responsible for promoting aerodrome operational best practices and formulating collective positions for airport operators on issues related to aerodrome safety. Its members are typically senior airfield operations managers or aerodrome Safety Management System (SMS) managers. 


Permanent employees of ACI Asia-Pacific member airports with current responsibility in aerodrome operations or implementation and maintenance of aerodrome SMS are encouraged to join the Committee. Led by a Chair, the Committee meets twice a year.
