Definition Source

EUROCONTROL EATMP Glossary, June 2001

Note

Within RVSM airspace this limit is reduced to 200 feet.(EUROCONTROL - HEIDI)

Definitions applied by other organisations are similar but sometimes refer to a deviation of 300 feet or more.

The level bust issue only relates to aircraft in controlled airspace or a designated ATZ outside controlled airspace and under either radar or procedural ATC control.
