  1. Thanks Alistair. Your answer is lawyer like :) and very helpful. I would add that in my experience some staff at Divisions level do not pay due regard or are not fully informed about the Global Policy. So you can have a position where a Division policy is more restrictive than the Global Policy. In such a situation there is no apparent mechanism to challenge the Division's interpretation/policy.
  2. One of the challenges I find is trying to square Division policy with VATSIM policy, with no apparent system for local vACC's to seek clarity outside of the Division as to whether the Division's approach is correct. With specific reference to Section 3 ATC Assessment, does anyone know if the reference to ATC training department relates to Division or vACC or both. https://www.vatsim.net/documents/global-ratings-policy
  3. As with any policy, questions do arise when trying to apply it in a practical way. This policy could be really useful for a region like Africa where traffic/ATC can be quite sporadic and therefore provide for greater coverage. I have read the policy a number of times and would appreciate clarity as to whether I have understood it properly. I can see that the policy refers to it being primarily for en route/APP controllers (S4.1.15) which could allow say for Kenya Centre to use the secondary frequency to cover Uganda, both countries being within area (S2.2) of the East Africa Community VACC/lo
  4. Is there a problem with weather this weekend? I am at HKJK and no weather data has been available all weekend. With no metar the atis has not worked. Obviously I have been able to improvise. I have checked other regions online or logged in to station where I am a visiting controller, it all seems to work okay. Thus I am left wondering.
