Change notice

Revision 1 of this AC updates the content to reflect the transition from a Quality Management System (QMS) to a system of safety management (Safety Management System or SMS) focus, as reflected in rule 147.17.

Throughout, we have substituted guidance on quality management with reference to AC100-1, as participants are advised to follow this AC when designing their SMS. We have also made a number of stylistic changes, including punctuation and general formatting fixes.  Lastly, we have taken the opportunity to add a Version History.

We have also made a marked up version [PDF 518 KB] available with the insertions highlighted in yellow and deletions in strikethrough so participants can check the changes easily.
