AIA/NAS - NAS9927
SAFETY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM PRACTICES FOR DESIGN AND MANUFACTURING
|Publication Date:||31 May 2016|
NAS9927 is intended to enable United States (US) aviation design and manufacturing (D&M) organizations to voluntarily implement a Safety Management System (SMS) that is consistent with 14 CFR part 5, Safety Management Systems. In order for a voluntary SMS to be accepted by the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) as consistent with part 5, the respective organization must demonstrate that the SMS satisfies the intent of part 5 in all important respects. When implemented in accordance with this standard, the resulting SMS may be eligible for acceptance by the FAA.
International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) Annex 19, Safety Management, establishes standards and recommended practices (SARP) applicable to safety management functions related to, or in direct support of, the safe operation of aircraft. The FAA has determined that 14 CFR part 5 is consistent with Annex 19. Therefore, while this NAS is directed to US D&M organizations, international D&M organizations may find this NAS useful for implementation of an SMS acceptable to international regulators as being consistent with Annex 19.
This NAS is intended to facilitate implementation of a tailored, appropriate SMS by individual D&M organizations.
Endorsed by the FAA! "The FAA accepts the NAS9927 as a basis for SMS recognition and will develop policy that will allow for an assessment of the processes and procedures of a Design and/or Manufacturers voluntary implementation of an SMS per Section 1 of the NAS9927."
