COM 4.11 RADIO MANDATORY ZONES / TRANSPONDER MANDATORY ZONES

Traffic density is constantly increasing and due to specific airspace classification, controlled IFR traffic can be mixed up with uncontrolled VFR traffic. With the intention to improve safety, additional SSR transponder and radio equipment carriage requirements have been implemented. This policy covers the concept of a Transponder Mandatory Zone (TMZ) / Radio Mandatory Zone (RMZ) and the needs to be considered to implement a TMZ/RMZ.


IFATCA Policy is:

Implementation of a RMZ/TMZ should not be used as an alternative for adequate airspace classification or design.

When a RMZ/TMZ is implemented:

  • Clear procedures and appropriate training should be in place;
  • Due care should be given to surveillance and communication system capabilities.

See: Resolution B61 – WP 66 – Virtual 2022
