Approved Check Dispatcher Program

Commercial & Business Aviation

ACD Program

The Approved Check Dispatcher (ACD) Program gives a commercial air operator the opportunity to use a dispatcher assessment program. The program consists of approved check dispatchers (ACDs), who are delegated the authority to conduct dispatch competency checks (DCCs) on behalf of the Minister.

The principal guidance document for the ACD program is the Approved Check Dispatcher Manual (TP 14114). This document specifies the policies and procedures that ACDs must follow to maintain their delegated authority. The ACD Manual is also the principal guidance document for Transport Canada inspectors. It provides the administrative procedures for approval of ACDs.
