REGULATORY PRINCIPLES

Safety regulation is founded on a number of concepts that may be summarized as follows:

An ANS regulatory function, independent of the service provider, shall monitor safety standards. Safety regulation shall be organizationally
separate from the planning, implementation and provision of ANS.
ANSSD shall set and oversee regulatory requirements in the interests of the safety of ANS.
Safety regulatory requirements shall be neither unduly prescriptive nor preventing innovation.
Safety regulation shall allow for alternative means of compliance with safety regulatory requirements where equivalent safety assurance is
provided.
The relationship between regulator and service provider should be that of a partnership set up to achieve a common safety goal.
Regulatory intervention shall be kept to the minimum practical level consistent with effective safety regulation.
