Quality & Safety Systems in Aviation – QSSA

QSSA staff are highly experienced in the Canadian aviation industry and regulatory environment. We will provide expert opinions and advice on the interpretation and application of the Aeronautics Act and Canadian Aviation Regulations and associated Standards.

In addition, QSSA staff have a significant background of experience and knowledge of ICAO Annex 19 in respect to State Safety Programme (SSP) and Safety Management Systems (SMS) implementation.

QSSA performs on-site inspection and assessments combined with virtual interviews and electronic documentation reviews. Due to COVID-19 travel restrictions over the past year we have upgraded our equipment, software and procedures to effectively conduct consulting work from any client around the globe.

Through the use of encrypted electronic file sharing with our secure client service portal and video conferencing technologies, we have seen significant savings in time and costs to our clients due to removing our travel expenses. Our business model will continue to rely heavily on remote virtual service and consulting work into the future.
