The National Air Transportation Association (NATA) has applauded the FAA's introduction of the Dynamic Regulatory System (DRS). Developed at the recommendation of and in collaboration with NATA and other industry stakeholders, the online tool eases access to Office of Aviation Safety guidance materials through a centralised portal.
“When it comes to safety, both speed and reliability are imperative. We are pleased to participate in initiatives that greatly improve the access to and consistency of valuable safety information and guidance. The association has always promoted continuous improvement as a key to success in safety management, and the DRS will provide a means for achieving this goal throughout the industry,” states NATA VP of regulatory affairs John McGraw.
The following can be browsed or searched in minutes versus days using a basic or advanced feature within the DRS: more than two million regulatory guidance documents; over 65 document types from more than a dozen repositories; links to Codes of Federal Regulations; guidance material from the FAA's Flight Standards Information System and its Regulatory Guidance System; and pending and current versions of documents, along with corresponding revision history
According to the FAA, “the DRS exceeds the requirements of the FAA Reauthorization Act of 2018 (Public Law 115-254), to establish a centralised safety database.” The information contained in the DRS is scheduled to update every 24 hours, and the DRS will continually evolve to include more features and functionality.
