Tenth Meeting of the DANUBE FAB Social Consultation Forum
The tenth DANUBE FAB Social Consultation Forum (SCF) took place in Borovets, Bulgaria on 15th & 16th December 2015. The aim of the meeting was to promote the social dialogue and to ensure that attention is given to the social issues arising from the DANUBE FAB implementation.
The DANUBE FAB social partners were informed of the outcomes of the last ANSP Board and Governing Council Meetings, and the recent regulatory FAB developments including the dropping of infringement proceedings against the FAB along with the status of the RP2 performance plan.
The recent focus on cooperation with regional and pan European partners was presented. This included the successful Inter-FAB coordination workshop hosted by DANUBE FAB in Bucharest, recently signed ANSP cooperation agreements and the proposed plans to investigate FAB enlargement.
The social partners were briefed on the high priority initiatives, including DANUBE FAB’s technical domain’s plans to provide seamless surveillance coverage across the border, and enhanced cross border operations building on the jointly procured communication system. The outcomes of the recent successful Real Time Simulations for Free Route Airspace held at EUROCONTROL’s Experimental Centre were presented, detailed results of which will be published in the beginning of 2016.
The participants also took a wider look at recent SES developments including SESAR Deployment, Network Functions and the Performance scheme, discussing opportunities for DANUBE FAB to jointly participate in various European Initiatives.
The next SCF meeting will be hosted in Romania in the first half of 2016
