Prescott Support Company Achieves Safety Management System (SMS) Certification
Prescott Support Company is proud to announce that it has been certified by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) as having met all requirements for a fully functional Safety Management System (SMS). This is a voluntary program in which participants implement SMS methods and regulations to improve safety for clients and employees and signifies that Prescott has successfully implemented an SMS aligned with U.S. and international standards.
The FAA SMS Voluntary Program is built upon the requirements contained in 14 CFR Part 5 Aviation Safety Management System Requirements and FAA Order VS 8000.367 as well as the SMS framework specified by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) in ICAO Annex 6 and the ICAO Safety Management Manual.
Prescott was notified of its acceptance into the SMS program following a rigorous validation and credentialing process conducted by the Certificate Management Team and FAA AFS-900 officials. Achieving “Active Conformance” certification – the highest status and SMS participant can achieve - validates that Prescott has implemented all required safety protocols to meet the requirements of the program.
“By joining the FAA’s Safety Management System, we are adding another layer of safety and security to all our operations,” said Dale Wright, Director of Safety at Prescott. “We are dedicated to making safety one of our top priorities, and we’re proud to join others around the world in this program.”
