3 “As we begin to write a new chapter in the fundamental law of the air, let us all remember that we are engaged in a great attempt to build enduring institutions of peace. These peace settlements cannot be endangered by petty considerations or weakened by groundless fears. Rather, with full recognition of the sovereignty and judicial equality of all nations, let us work together so that the air may be used by humanity, to serve humanity” President Roosevelt to the opening plenary session

4 What is ICAO? Specialized agency of UN Created in 1944
Promotes safe and orderly development of international civil aviation throughout the world Sets standards and regulations necessary for aviation safety security efficiency and regularity aviation environmental protection Serves as forum for cooperation in all fields of civil aviation among 191 Member States

5 ICAO’s Strategic Objectives
Safety Enhance global civil aviation safety Security Enhance global civil aviation security Environmental Protection& Sustainable Development of Air Transport Foster harmonized and economically viable development of international civil aviation that does not unduly harm the environment

6 A Shared Vision for the Future
Global Strategic Plans with Priorities and Targets Completely overhauled Global Aviation Safety Plan & Global Air Navigation Plan

7 Secretary General elected by the Council Elected by the Assembly
ICAO Structure Business Plan SECRETARIAT Secretary General elected by the Council COUNCIL = 36 States Elected by the Assembly COMMISSIONS & COMMITTEES ASSEMBLY = 191 Contracting States Results-based budget

8 Chicago Convention Two pillars of aviation development
Article 28-Air Navigation Facilities and Services States to provide facilities and services to facilitate international aviation in accordance with the Convention Article 37-Adoption of International Standards and Procedures Requirements to collaborate in securing the highest practicable degree of uniformity in regulations, standards, procedures and organization

9 Hierarchy of ICAO Documentation
CC Annexes (SARPS) PANS and SUPPs Guidance Materials Clarified/ supported by Policy Statements, State letters, Assembly Resolutions 4 Fly ins. Top down. Set 2 sec. intervals

10 Standards and Recommended Practices
Uniform application is recognized as necessary for the safety or regularity of international air navigation. Requires notification of differences Recommended Practice Uniform application is recognized as desirable in the interests of safety, regularity or efficiency of international air navigation. Contracting States should endeavor to conform

11 Annexes Annex 1 — Personnel Licensing Annex 2 — Rules of the Air
Annex 3 — Meteorological Service for International Air Navigation Annex 4 — Aeronautical Charts Annex 5 — Units of Measurement to be Used in Air and Ground Operations Annex 6 — Operation of Aircraft Annex 7 — Aircraft Nationality and Registration Marks Annex 8 — Airworthiness of Aircraft Annex 9 — Facilitation Annex 10 — Aeronautical Telecommunications Annex 11 — Air Traffic Services Annex 12 — Search and Rescue Annex 13 — Aircraft Accident and Incident Investigation Annex 14 — Aerodromes Annex 15 — Aeronautical Information Services Annex 16 — Environmental Protection Annex 17 — Security — Safeguarding International Civil Aviation against Acts of Unlawful Interference Annex 18 — The Safe Transport of Dangerous Goods by Air Annex 19 — Safety Management The SARPs are incorporated into eighteen Annexes to the Convention on International Civil Aviation, otherwise known as the Chicago Convention. The Annexes are shown here.

12 Procedures for Air Navigation Services (PANS)
Complementary to SARPs Comprise material too detailed for SARPs Do not have same status as SARPs Amendment procedure is similar to SARPs Approved by Council Recommended to Contracting States for worldwide application

13 Guidance Material ICAO manuals and circulars provide guidance and information to facilitate the uniform application of SARPs and PANS Approved by Secretary General and published under his authority

14 Filing of Differences Article 38: Departures from int’l standards
Requirements to notify ICAO of differences to standards Assembly Resolution A35-14, Appendix D, Associated Practice No. 3 Council to urge States to notify ICAO of differences from SARPs

15 Strategic direction of SARPs
Towards performance-based SARPs Less technical specifications Use of outside standards-making organizations Use of electronic means to facilitate process

16 Conclusion ICAO’s structure supports its mission and objectives
Articles 28 & 37 of Convention are backbone of ICAO work Mechanisms to ensure uniformity and harmonization SARPs, PANS, ANPs, SUPPs, guidance material ICAO documents are extensive and include Annexes, PANS, manuals and circulars ICAO revised overarching policy documents and moving towards performance-based SARPs
