Abstract

This article analyses the European system of Air Traffic Management (ATM) as a specific case study of EU regulation of potentially catastrophic risks. The creation of the Single European Sky is a growing area of EU policy, which shows the potential and the difficulties of coordinating national competence, with the aim of boosting the efficiency of air transport in Europe. Given the direct impact of these policies on safety, two main questions assist in the implementation of this regulation: what level of protection is appropriate against the risks of possible catastrophic impact, and who bears the risk in case the delivered safety system fails. Precautionary safety standards and liability remedies are therefore addressed as the key issues of risk regulation.
