Network Operations forms
CACD Data forms
Intended for ENV Coordinators only, use these forms to request an update of the CACD data (former ENV Data).
Operational Problem Report form
Important notice:This form is used to report to the Network Manager of suspected problems which consequently had an impact on the provision of ATM (such as erroneous messages from ETFMS) or in a process (such as treatment of Flight Plans or allocation of slots).
The primary media for reporting an operational problem to the Network Manager is the Central Claim Management System: CCMS. These forms may only be used when the user cannot access CCMS.
Request for messaging/addressing form
for Aircraft Operators only, this form covers the request, to send to a SITA or AFTN address, the provision of ATFCM and/or IFPS messages by EUROCONTROL .
NM catalogue - Leaflets and factsheets
The NM Catalogue has been designed as a quick and clear reference for the Network Manager users, it aims at providing an easy overview of the support the Network Manager Directorate can provide, in particular:
- to inform external users about our services, tools and access conditions to them;
- to link to further information, making sure that the external user finds his/her way throughout the EUROCONTROL support services.
The service leaflets and factsheets provide an additional synthetic view on various key functions of the NM service support.
