ROCC holder responsibilities

An ROCC holder is not entitled to provide instructions to a pilot however they do have a ‘duty of care’ to provide safety critical information as soon as available, this includes flight safety messages and timely safety information regarding adverse weather to an aircraft in flight or about to depart. The information provided by an AGCS/OCS radio station operator may be used to assist a pilot in making a decision; however, the safe conduct of the flight remains the pilot's responsibility.
