DOT/FAA RIN: 2120-AK87 Publication ID: Fall 2016 
Title: ●Use of ADS-B in Support of Reduced Vertical Separation Minimum (RVSM) Operations (RVSM ADS-B) 

This rulemaking would revise the FAA's requirements for an application to operate in Reduced Vertical Separation Minimum (RVSM) airspace. This rulemaking would employs enhancements in monitoring of aircraft that result from new technologies and responds to requests from industry and FAA program offices to streamline the current process. It would eliminate the considerable burden and expense of developing, processing, and individually approving operators for RVSM operation when their aircraft are equipped with qualified Automatic Dependent Surveillance Broadcast-Out (ADS-B Out) systems. As a result of this rulemaking, operators of aircraft equipped with ADS-B Out systems would no longer be required to obtain specific RVSM authorization.
