Air Traffic Organization Operational Contingency Plan

inactive
Organization: FAA
Publication Date: 1 December 2006
Status: inactive
Page Count: 26
scope:

The purpose of an OCP, also known as the facility contingency plan (CP), is to reduce the impact(s) and risk(s) to the National Airspace System (NAS) in the event a facility is, or facilities are, unable to safely and efficiently provide ATC services as required by FAA Orders 7110.65, Air Traffic Control; 7210.3, Facility Operation and Administration; 6000.15, General Maintenance Handbook for National Airspace System (NAS) Facilities; 7110.10, Flight Services; and 1900.1, FAA Emergency Operations Plan, as amended. En Route and Oceanic, Terminal, System Operations, Operations Planning, and Technical Operations Services, and FAA contract ATC service providers must jointly develop and maintain OCPs for all ATC facilities. OCPs can be triggered by a natural disaster, major system failure(s) or other event(s) that directly affects personnel, the delivery of operational ATC services, or other technical capabilities. In the event the Parent Facility or facilities become(s) incapacitated, all affected airspace must be assumed by other Support facilities. ATC services, to the extent possible, must also be assumed by other Support facilities. The event(s) may require activation of the OCP, the facility Emergency Operations Plan, or the national Business Continuity Plan (BCP). Nothing in this order should be construed as relieving facility managers of the responsibility to have procedures in place to respond to the wide variety of OCP events that may derogate the capability to provide ATC services.

Purpose of This Order.

Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Order 1900.47B, Air Traffic Organization Operational Contingency Plan, establishes the ATO procedures, requirements, and responsibilities to develop, coordinate, support, maintain, revise, test, train, document, and implement operational contingency plans (OCP) for FAA air traffic control (ATC) facilities, Federal contract towers (FCT), FAA flight service stations (FSS), and contract automated flight service stations (AFSS), hereafter known as "ATC facilities."
