The industry is constantly being driven to deliver ever higher levels of safety. In addition, from Jan 2009 ICAO enquires the implementation of a proactive SMS system. EASA is expected to follow ICAO requirements from middle 2012.

“The risks and costs in commercial aviation necessitate a rational process for decision-making. On a daily basis, operators and managers make decisions in real time, weighing the probability and severity of any adverse consequences implied by the risk against the expected gain of taking the risk. This process is known as risk management.” - ICAO

The core requirement for an SMS is an effective method of identifying and controlling risk, and an essential element of safety management is the process of risk assessment.
