Our approach to safety is a pro-active and preventive one: improve the data gathering and reporting mechanisms, increase the understanding of safety risks and promote best practice.  We also support ANSPs in the achievement of their safety goals whilst ensuring their successful implementation at the FAB and network level.We strive for a performance-based approach which improves the European network's safety, while meeting the strategic safety objectives of the Single European Sky.
