About Safety and Quality Management System - SQMS

The Directorate of Safety and Quality Management System is established in 2009. In 2008 Pakistan CAA started actions regarding acquisition of International Management Systems Standards for the continual improvement in its functions, systems and services. ICAO Safety management System is another International requirement for the provision of Air Traffic Services and Aerodrome Operations. Pakistan CAA being Air Navigation Service Provider & Operator of Aerodromes and having a fleet of Calibration Aircraft is mandatorily required to implement Safety Management System (Aviation SMS) in these areas. In the first phase CAA intends to subscribe four major international management system standards (i.e. QMS, EMS, OHSAS & ICAO SMS. In the year 2009 management of Pakistan CAA has decided to establish a separate Directorate to operate & control all four management systems from one single office and so the Directorate of Safety & Quality Management System was came into being headed by Director SQMS, who reports directly to the Director General of Pakistan CAA. Later on Pakistan CAA has added two more standards i.e. ICAO Security Management System and Information Security Management System. The successful implementation of these fundamental management system standards will open new avenues in the success of Civil Aviation Authority. The Directorate of SQMS would certainly move forward for the acquisition of other international management standards in future.
