This document is intended to be used by civil aviation authorities (CAAs) and service providers that are in the initial stages of safety management development/ implementation. This document only introduces basic taxonomy examples; therefore, use of additional sources in conjunction is recommended. Additionally, this document will be provided to the Commercial Aviation Safety Team (CAST)/ICAO Common Taxonomy Team (CICTT) for further consideration. Read more
