What are the criteria for a ‘suitable functional test’ for cabin crew who fail the Ishihara colour vision test?

A suitable test would be relevant to the cabin crew role and not require a higher standard of colour vision than would be required for a crew member to successfully complete their Safety Equipment & Procedures (SEP) training. It should be borne in mind that no colour vision critical tasks have been identified, i.e. there are no safety critical tasks that are dependent solely on colour vision cues. Cabin crew in the UK (and many other States) have not required colour vision assessment prior to the implementation of the EASA regulations.
