WMO Members QM Risk Analysis
A broad risk analysis was conducted by the WMO Task Team on Quality Management to establish the risk to three identified key stakeholder groups if they failed to adopt a quality management approach to the delivery of aviation weather services.The three key stakeholder groups are:
- The Country,
- The Service Providers, and
Please note that the perceived risks identified for each of the three main stakeholder groups are based on the collective knowledge and experience of the QMO Task Team members. It must be appreciated that these may not apply to all stakeholders and that some risks specific to stakeholder's individual circumstances may not have been identified. It is hoped that the results of this analysis will raise the awareness of the importance of a QM and "encourage" Members to be proactive in the adoption of a QM approach to the delivery of their weather services.
