ADQ4u: Gap Analysis

GroupEAD provides “ADQ4u”, a range of consultancy services that address the needs of all affected parties. Our ADQ4u services guide and support your organization in the implementation of the aeronautical data and information quality requirements stated in EC regulation 73/2010.

The services include the analysis of the current processes in place, the evaluation of compliance with ADQ regulations, the provision of the gap analysis results and the proposed measures for achieving ADQ compliance, including implementation process.

The ADQ4u Gap Analysis is structured in four phases:

  • Phase 1 – Framework evaluation: This phase is aimed at providing GroupEAD with organisational details in order to set up the framework for the Implementation service.
  • Phase 2 - Online Tool: GroupEAD provides access to an online tool (questionnaire) for gathering in depth information related to the level of compliance of the ADQ regulation for the different roles addressed by the client.
  • Phase 3 – Evaluation: GroupEAD analyses the answers to the questionnaire, the documents provided, the processes and the procedures as described by client. The evaluation mirrors against EU 73/2010 regulation requirements and identify compliance / non-compliance.
  • Phase 4 – Gap Analysis Report: GroupEAD provides an evaluation report including all analysis performed to the client.


ADQ4u Compliance roadmap

We are able to prepare a specific and detailed description of all the activities and process you will need to achieve in order to attain ADQ compliancy. This service accelerates your compliance timeframe meaning you become ADQ compliant faster.

ADQ4u Compliance Planning is structured in two steps:

  • Step 1 - ADQ4u Evaluation of measures: an inventory where the potential solutions to become ADQ compliant are detailed, analyzed and evaluated. The final result is a “List of Measures” addressing the different actions that could be taken to become ADQ compliant, indicating the resources needed and the impact on the different customer’s units affected.
  • Step 2 - ADQ4u Roadmap to ADQ Compliance: Based on the discussion of the List of Measures with the client, GroupEAD develops and provides a commonly agreed roadmap detailing, step by step, all the activities to be performed by the client in order to comply with the ADQ regulation.

The final result of this phase is an agreed and feasible “Roadmap for ADQ Compliance” stating all specific actions to be taken by the customer to achieve the goal of compliance with EU Regulation 73/2010.
