24 airports across Nunavut
Nunavut Airport Services Limited (NASL)
We began our partnership in 2016 to provide technical services supporting the development, implementation and oversight of a compliant Safety Management System and Quality Assurance Program for their 24 airports.
The unique partnership with the Government of Nunavut allows WASCO to provide qualified technical and management staff to support the Airport Regulatory Programs, including Safety Management and Quality Assurance at the 24 airports.
Acting independently from the SMS team, the Audit team is responsible for executing Quality Assurance Program audits at each of the 24 airports. These audits will include reviewing regulatory documents, processes and airport physical infrastructure.
Our cooperative partnership with the Government of Nunavut allowed WASCO to establish a Safety Management System and Quality Assurance Program to suit the specific needs of remote and regional airports. Airports of this size, scope, and complexity may not require a full-time dedicated individual to administer these program, WASCO provides for a fully compliant program to be administered remotely without requiring additional staff. Partnering with WASCO for SMS enables Airport Management to focus on the performance of their operations while WASCO can manage the process of safety and regulatory compliance.
