The parties will develop safety policies through joint seminars and research projects.
The Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Civil Aviation Authority of New Zealand (CAANZ) to strengthen cooperation in enhancing aviation safety, an announcement revealed.
The MoU will facilitate the sharing of aviation safety information, training and knowledge exchange in safety policy development through joint seminars, research projects and studies on aviation safety topics.
Additionally, it will also enable both parties to work towards concluding bilateral technical arrangements which will facilitate reciprocal acceptance of approvals and certificates in areas such as airworthiness maintenance and certification to reduce duplication of regulatory audits and associated regulatory costs.
According to director-general of CAAS Kevin Shum, the collaboration provides a platform for both civil aviation authorities to further enhance bilateral ties and raise aviation safety standards for their respective air transport sectors.
In a separate announcement, CAAS revealed that it has also signed a similar arrangement with Transport Canada Civil Aviation (TCCA), which builds upon a technical arrangement on aviation maintenance signed in 2003 and later revised in 2011.
