Report for OST 05 - 4

30 November 2005

Dr. Annette Ruge

Aviation Health Unit, CAA UK


Osg the requirements

OSG – The Requirements

  • JAR – OPS 1.760 First-aid oxygen

    • Proposal to provide oxygen for passengers who may need it during normal flight

  • JAR – OPS 1.770 Supplemental oxygen

    • Proposal to decrease oxygen provision after decompression between altitudes 15000 ft and 14000 ft from 30% of passengers to 10% of passengers


History of osg

History of OSG

  • 1999:

    Operations Committee installs OSG

  • October 2002:

    A-NPA OPS-32 (Oxygen) circulated for comments

  • April 2003:

    Comment-Response Document and amended proposal to EQSC. Decision not to launch a full NPA


History of osg1

History of OSG

  • June 2003:

    Specialist Group

    • to evaluate the proposals and

    • provide evidence that proposals are safe

  • January 2005:

    Evaluation from 3 specialists received:

    Amended requirements may be safe for (young and) healthy passengers


Proposed amendments icao faa

Proposed amendments ICAO & FAA

  • JAR – OPS 1.770

    • is not ICAO compliant today

    • no plans to amend ICAO rule

    • the proposed amendments further decrease the provision for supplemental oxygen

    • existing JAR – OPS 1.770 is marginally lower than FAR 121.133 (e) (depending on aircraft type)


Oxygen study group

OSG

  • OSG re-installed in OST 04-1

  • No members from NAAs werenominated

  • UK view: Amend JAR – OPS 1.770 only if compelling medical evidence can be produced that the new provisions are safe for all occupants of an aeroplane


Oxygen study group

OSG

  • AEA and Airbus nominated members

  • Industry view:

    • Circulate the proposals as they stand in A-NPA OPS 32 as full NPA

    • consider to restrict changes to certain routes (Greenland, Iran, Afghanistan), or

    • consider to grant exemptions for these routes as FAA does


Medical evidence

Medical Evidence

  • Most studies have been carried out in the 1930ies in the military

  • Opinions about safety vary because

    • the travelling public ages

    • passengers with medical conditions travel

    • even normal cabin altitude (8000 ft) is a medical problem for some passengers


Options

Options

  • Amend JAR – OPS 1.770 for specific routes

    • may be too complicated

    • (rules should be simple)

  • Grant exemptions as FAA does

    • compromises harmonisation in Europe

  • Continue without change


Stabilisation criteria for npa activity

Stabilisation Criteria for NPA activity

  • Any proposed change to conform with:

    • lead to a positive contribution to the JAA’s aim for safety; or

    • to correct an acute implementation problem; or

    • to align with the EU; or

    • to comply with IACO Annexes; or

    • to harmonise with FAA; or

    • to permit the rapid implementation of new technological processes


The ost is asked to note that

The OST is asked to note that

  • there is no compelling medical evidence that the proposed amendments are safe for all occupants of an aircraft

  • medical evidence supporting the proposals does exist for healthy passengers


The ost is asked to note that1

The OST is asked to note that

  • the proposal in JAR – OPS 1.760 to carry medical oxygen may be of advantage for sick passengers

  • Industry is in favour of the proposed changes - or possibility of exemptions for specific routes - to regain a global level playing field


The ost is asked to note that2

The OST is asked to note that

  • the OSG did not achieve full consensus on the proposed amendments as outlined in A-NPA OPS 32

  • the JAA criteria for a NPA are not met


The way ahead

The way ahead

  • The OST is asked to agree on the way forward with the options:

    • to continue the work considering specific routes only; or

    • to consider exemptions from the requirements for specific routes; or


The way ahead1

The way ahead

  • The OST is asked to agree on the way forward with the options:

    • not to amend JAR – OPS 1.770 but consider changes to 1.760; or

    • not to amend the oxygen provisions in JAR – OPS
