TOTAL AOC’S CENTRIK REDUCES NEW OVERSIGHT CHALLENGES FOR OPERATORS
19 March 2015
With the change to performance-based oversight as a result of new EASA standards, Centrik, the cloud-based aviation management software package from Total AOC is helping to reduce onerous oversight requirements on operators.
Centrik’s ability to collate and manage every aspect of aviation operations, combined with its ease of accessibility anywhere in the world, means operators can quickly demonstrate to regulators they have the reliability and compliance to operate independently without having to be constantly audited.
Centrik provides complete management of all areas of operations, including modules for compliance, safety, risk, meetings, training and documents. The system gives operators total control. This is crucial now that under
EASA requirements, the responsibility is now back on the operator to demonstrate it has an effective management system that incorporates safety, risk and compliance.
Those unable to demonstrate they are in full control of their operation are placing themselves at risk of greater performance-based oversight from their local regulator, such as the UK’s Civil Aviation Authority (CAA). Centrik goes above and beyond the minimum requirements, and can also facilitate audits.
Because the system can be used to share data directly with a regulator, the audit process is made far simpler as much of the preparatory work can be carried out by an auditor without even needing to visit the operator.
Julian Tubb, Director of Total AOC, says: “Centrik provides a complete AOC management solution that makes auditing and assessing far easier for operators. Because it incorporates document management, training, safety and risk all in one place, everything about the business’ operations can be easily collated and presented, which allows the entire process to run smoothly and reassures the CAA that there’s no need to enforce stricter performance-based oversight.”
