Legal Matters

Legal Matters

Air traffic control, and ATM generally, relies on procedures, instructions, national regulation and international standards and recommended practices. Such a standardized and highly regulated domain raises a number of issues regarding roles and responsibilities, and even liabilities, of the parties involved. The Legal Matters section of WIKIFATCA contains a number of policies, working papers, and other documents and resources related to legal issues, law, jurisprudence and other similar subjects.

 

 

DEFINITION OF LEGAL MATTERS

In law terms, legal matters means a legal issue or administrative or judicial proceeding. The term also includes any dispute regarding the rights or obligations of a party that arise out of or relate to the existence, negotiation, validity, formation, interpretation, breach, performance or application of an agreement. It can also refer to any action, suit, litigation other legal proceeding, alternative dispute resolution proceeding, inquiry, investigation or other proceeding by or before any arbitral or other forum (Law Insider, 2020).

For IFATCA, and within the air traffic control domain, the term may apply to a variety of issues, such as, but not limited to: rights of representation, protection of identity, exemption of duty, controller liability, negligence (duty of care) and any other matters that depends upon the interpretation of the law, aviation regulation, procedures, and other regulatory documents.
