EASA launched a tender for a study contract on the impact analysis, prevention and management of Air Traffic Controllers’ (ATCOs) occupational fatigue.
The study contract covers three main objectives:
- to evaluate the implementation of EU regulations on this issue, notably Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2017/373 adopted on March 1, 2017 and applied as of January 2020, which imposed on air traffic service providers specific requirements linked to ATCOs stress, fatigue and rostering systems, as part of their safety management systems.
- to conduct scientific research in this area with a view to provide guidance and assess the need for a possible further development of the related European rules and practices.
- to measure and/or anticipate the possible impact of the introduction of new technologies on the ATCOs’ occupational fitness.
Please note that this tender is not related to an EU Research programme (e.g. Horizon Europe).
All details about the tender and information on how to apply are available in the Official Journal of the EU under the following tender reference EASA.2022.HVP.19.
