The 2015 Conference took place in collaboration with the Ministry of Transport, CAA and the airlines & employee groups of Luxembourg at the Double Tree Hilton in Luxembourg on 6th and 7th May 2015
The FRMS Forum held their 2015 meeting in Luxembourg following the kind invitation from a representative of all stakeholders in that country.
The agenda for this meeting covered
- Developments within the regulatory environment with specific focus on those from Europe
- Experiences from operators who are implementing FRMS
- Workshops to achieve a consensus on some of the issues facing regualtors, operators and employee groups that are emerging as FRMS is adopted.
The meeting was preceeded by a short training session offered by ALPL on 5th May covering the basics of FRMS for those new to FRMS. This training was offered at no charge and was oversubscribed.
The committee wish to thank all presenters who kindly gave the audience the benefit of their experiences. Thanks also go to the generosity of our Luxembourg hosts for providing an excellent venue and opportunity to exchange experiences and network with world class experts in this subject.
