CAA’s new Bowtie Risk Model Strategy

The CAA has published a new Bowtie Risk Model Strategy (CAP1329) which identifies how the models can be best used as an effective and proactive safety risk assessment tool. The overall aim is to inform and improve decision making so that the right actions can be taken to achieve the best safety outcomes for the UK public.

The strategy’s objectives are linked to Performance Based Regulation (PBR), Safety Management Systems (SMS), issuance of approvals, obtaining safety assurance and collaborating with the aviation industry. More bowtie information is available on our website:
