This technical specification:
- outlines a methodology to address the safety at all lifecycle phases of an AGL system, including the evaluation, design, procurement, manufacture, installation, commissioning, operational use, maintenance, modification, and decommissioning of the AGL system;
NOTE 1 This document contains guidelines of a high-level, objective-based, and non-prescriptive nature. This is intended to permit a flexible approach to meeting the requirements.
- applies to an AGL system at an aerodrome or heliport which provides visual guidance to a pilot and is provided, operated and maintained by the aerodrome authority;
NOTE 2 This document may apply to all or a part of an AGL system as required by the aerodrome authority. The equipment covered shall be defined and listed in the AGL safety case (see 5.6). Any subsequent addition or modification to the AGL system shall be notified as directed in 7.7.3.
- applies primarily to a new AGL system;
NOTE It may also be applied to an existing AGL system or to an existing AGL system that is being modified; however, the relevant documentation for the project phases may not be available. Therefore, retrospective action to cover the applicable lifecycle phases could be carried out or alternative means of providing safety information should be developed, e.g. historical data.
- covers all aspects of safety, including:
• operational (functional) safety of the AGL system;
• electrical safety for the installation, maintenance and decommissioning of the AGL system;
• environmental safety and electromagnetic compatibility (EMC);
• health and safety at work.
- supports a regulatory regime based on the auditing of a safety management system at an aerodrome, where the safety management system provides documented evidence that safety has been or is being addressed at all phases of the lifecycle. This applies equally to a project to install AGL or the routine operational use and maintenance of the AGL.
