Enhancing your Compliance Monitoring System workshop

TQ11-EASA21J | 2 days | Grade: Practitioner

You have a functioning management system which meets all the regulatory requirements, but the move to performance-based regulation will require you to demonstrate its effectiveness. How can your audit function measure the performance of your compliance monitoring management system and assure your stakeholders that compliance is being managed effectively?

Having full confidence in your assurance function and in the accuracy of its output is essential if you are to gain maximum safety and business benefit. Once you have this confidence, you have the intelligence you require to design system enhancements, reduce risk and improve performance.

How will this course benefit me?

Following the successful implementation of the Quality Management System and Assurance philosophy, EASA intends to mandate a Compliance Monitoring and integrated Management System for approved airworthiness organisations. This 2-day workshop will benefit your existing quality assurance and/or ISM function personnel by introducing the new approach, and will enable them to develop measures that will provide the foundations for effective performance moving forward:

  • Reduce corporate risk through improved risk mitigation
  • Develop efficient processes that are compliant with regulations
  • Challenge processes to demonstrate not only compliance but systematic improvements
  • Speak the same ‘language’ as the Regulator.

 

Key areas of focus
Please note that the following topics are indicative only and a pre-workshop discussion with one of our consultants will determine how the workshop will be focused.

  • What does an ‘effective’ Compliance Monitoring function look like
  • Measuring performance of the Compliance Monitoring function
  • Key Performance Questions and Key Performance Indicators
  • Consequences of ignoring what your results might be telling you
  • The philosophy of auditing
  • The Management System approach.

This course is aligned with ISO 19011 and ICAO 9859 concepts, and AMC1 ORO.GEN.200(a)(6).

 

Workshop format
The format of the workshop will be tailored to meet specific organisational approvals and will comprise a mixture of discussion, whiteboard exercises and presentation slides.

Frequently asked questions

Q. I am a trained auditor and have just joined the assurance function and would like to understand how I can deliver real benefit in my new role. Is this course suitable for me?

A. Yes, understanding the intent of the regulations, the management system approach and the role of the audit function is vital. Your output (audit reports and associated findings) in this new role must inform your management team about the level of compliance within your organisation. Understanding the intent and not just the content of the regulations will allow you to deliver this.

Q. I am currently a Manager within an EASA approved organisation and wish to improve my understanding of what the role of the Quality Assurance /ISM function is and what they should be doing to help protect our organisation. Is this course suitable for me?

A. Yes, this course examines the required competencies, purposes and interactions that need to be defined so that the function can protect both you and your organisation. It examines in detail all the indicators required to establish, implement and maintain an effective audit function.

Q. I work in an EASA environment and I am very interested in doing something different from the day to day box ticking audits that we have done for many years. Will this course provide me with a different way of thinking? A. Yes, delivering benefit from your audit programme is what this course is all about. This will seriously challenge the common box ticking audit approach.
