The System Safety Assessment Report (SSAR) is a report to provide management with an overall assessment of the risk associated with the system prior to fielding and must be employed prior to operation of the system. This is accomplished by providing summaries of the analyses and testing results. The report contains an overall assessment of the program from the analyses performed and a status of all the existing and recommended safety requirements. The SSAR identifies all safety features of the system, the design and procedural hazards that may be present in the system being acquired, and the specific procedural controls and precautions that should be followed.
This Data Item Description (DID) contains the format, content, and preparation instructions for the SSAR.
