The Minister for Public Works and Transport Ps. Lindiwe Dlamini speaking in the official opening of Regional Safety Oversight Organization (RSOOs) Conference commended EASA for lifting the ban on Swazi registered aircrafts in 2013, and the strides made by SWACAA in aviation safety are noteworthy. She was delivering her address at Royal Swazi Convention Centre, on Wednesday, 22nd March 2017.

Dlamini acknowledged that Swaziland through SWACAA has managed to simultaneously attain ISO certification in three standards; namely:

  1. ISO 9001 – Quality Management System
  2. IS 14001 – Environmental Management System
  3. OSHAS 18001 – Occupational Health and Safety System

“In the area of oversight, the Kingdom has prudently ensured that national aviation laws are strictly adhered to by both airline and airport operators,” she said. Dlamini further admitted that no Air Operator Certificate has been issued yet, for airlines to operate at King Mswati III International Airport due to airlines not fulfilling the requirements of our legislation.

The Minister highlighted that a surveillance program of the aviation industry has been developed to ensure that industry players who are certified will continually adhere to the certification conditions and requirements for safety and security concerns, strict laws will further contribute to a safe and secure air transportation system.

One of the great opportunities in the conference among RSOOs was standardization and harmonization in rules, regulations, procedures and practices, and to review forms of cooperative State safety oversight mechanisms and accountability and sovereignty between member states and RSOOs.
