The use of SIDs and STARS has grown tremendously in the past decade. Unfortunately, there has been a noticeable lack of standardization and the result is pilots face a confusing mix of local practices. One of these is how the procedures are named.
IFATCA Policy is:
SID and STAR designators shall be identical between the ATM system and the FMS.
