1 Policy Monitoring Support

2 As the global forum for cooperation among its Member States and with the world aviation community, ICAO sets standards and recommended practices to enhance global aviation security and facilitation

3 ICAO has developed the ICAO Comprehensive Aviation Security Strategy (ICASS) for , which identifies 7 strategic areas to focus ICAO’s aviation security efforts. The strategy was endorsed by the 37th Session of the Assembly

4 Annex 17 − Security Sets out the Standards and Recommended Practices to be implemented by Member States to safeguard international civil aviation against acts of unlawful interference

5 Aviation Security Manual (Doc 8973 - Restricted)
Provides guidance on how to apply Annex 17 Note: Amendment 1 to the Eighth Edition is available in all languages and includes updated guidance on air cargo and mail supply chain security.

6 For more information, email us at
Introduced in 2011, the AVSECPaedia is a dynamic and collaborative tool that allows States to share their own security information and practices For more information, us at

7 Acts of Unlawful Interference Database (AUID)
AUID is a secure online database available to all Member States and is designed to provide information on aviation security incidents in an efficient and effective manner

8 Acts of Unlawful Interference Database (AUID)
--Graphical and numerical display of AUI data--

9 ICAO Point of Contact Network (AVSECNET)
Features a built-in messaging system that allows for rapid exchange of critical information among States, while providing controls over who can access such information

10 Facilitation is the efficient management of control processes, to expedite clearance and to prevent unnecessary delays

11 Annex 9 − Facilitation Sets out the Standards and Recommended Practices for Member States to maximize the efficiency of their border clearance formalities

12 Facilitation Manual Doc 9957
Provides guidance on how to implement Annex 9

13 Manual on Access to Air Transport by Persons with Disabilities − Doc 9984
Provides general guidance on services and features needed to assure persons with disabilities have access to air transportation

14 Cooperation among Member States is essential to successful development of modern technology and processes, more effective information sharing and assistance efforts

15 Machine Readable Travel Documents (Doc 9303)
MRTDs include Machine Readable Passports, Visas and Official Travel Documents. They facilitate the inspection of international travellers at borders and enhance security Comprehensive specifications and guidance material to assist States in their implementation of MRTDs are published in Doc 9303, which is endorsed by the International Organization for Standardization as ISO/IEC 7501

16 MRTDs improve both facilitation and security

17 Machine Readable Travel Document (MRTD)

18 ePassport Every ePassport has an embedded electronic chip that contains the holder’s personal information and photo found in the passport. The ePassport chip is digitally signed to prevent unauthorized alteration. The technology used is called Public Key Infrastructure (PKI).

19 Face Biometric Face Biometric proven as most compatible. Addresses numerous identity related requirements.

20 Enhancing the MRTD Programme
ICAO Traveller Identification Programme (ICAO TRIP) Holistic approach to identification management and travel documents Applicable to all modes of transport and borders Integrates MRTDs, PKD and other elements of traveller identification management Submitted to the 38th Session of the ICAO Assembly − for the final endorsement of the TRIP Strategy

21 Holistic Traveller Identification Management: Five Dimensions
Civil Registries Airlines Evidence of Identity MRTDs Document Issuance and Control Inspection Systems and Tools Interoperable Applications Travel Document Issuing Authorities Airports Travel Document Industry International Organizations Aviation Security Authorities Border Control Authorities Law Enforcement Authorities Regional Organizations

22 Public Key Directory (PKD)
The Public Key Directory (PKD) is an ePassport inspection tool that was created at the request of Member States to facilitate the sharing of the public keys required to authenticate ePassports. ICAO encourages all Member States to join the PKD to enhance security in cross-border movement.

23 PKD has 38 members and is growing
The ICAO PKD acts as a central broker, managing the multilateral exchange of information used to validate ePassports Membership is beneficial to travel document issuers and border control authorities and PKD ensures worldwide recognition of States’ ePassports, allowing travellers to cross borders easily

24 PKD Assistance Currently, no alternative mechanism is available for distributing public key infrastructure (PKI) information worldwide in an efficient and economic manner. The ICAO PKD also provides States with tools and expertise for ensuring adherence to the technical standards and specifications contained in ICAO Doc 9303.

25 Universal Security Audit Programme (USAP)
To determine: the State’s capability for security oversight; the degree of compliance of the State with Annex 17 Standards and security-related provisions of Annex 9.

26 Background: The USAP USAP Cycle II USAP-CMA USAP Cycle I A36-20 A37-17
Voluntary Technical Evaluations 1989 – 2001 Annex 17 140 Requests 112 Assessments USAP Cycle I A33-1, A35-9 2002 – 2007 Annex 17 181 Audits Confidentiality of Audit Results Follow-up Missions 2005 – 2009 USAP Cycle II A36-20 2008 – 2013 Annex 17 + Annex 9 Security Related SARPs 178 audits Limited Level of Transparency USAP-CMA A37-17 2014 – onwards Continuous Monitoring Approach Risk- Based Tailored activities AVSEC

27 USAP Results Analysis Document Fifth Edition − 2013
Contains extensive information on the results of the completed second cycle of USAP audits.

28 Continuous Monitoring Approach
USAP Beyond 2013 Continuous Monitoring Approach CMA The USAP-CMA will incorporate both a continuous monitoring and risk-based approach customized for aviation security. A transition phase began following the completion of the 2nd cycle of audits and full implementation of the USAP–CMA is expected by Jan 2015.

29 Secretariat Study Group Meeting
USAP-CMA Advantages March 2012 Move from cyclical audits to continuous monitoring Flexible framework and methodology Increased focus on assistance Findings subjected to a risk assessment based on their impact on aviation security, and recommendations prioritized as short- medium- and long-term Feedback for policy development USAP Continuous Monitoring Approach

30 Secretariat Study Group Meeting
Goals of the USAP-CMA March 2012 Provide for continuous monitoring and assessment of States’ aviation security performance: compliance with ICAO security SARPs adherence to associated international best security-related practices and guidance material capability for security oversight USAP Continuous Monitoring Approach

31 Secretariat Study Group Meeting
Goals of the USAP-CMA March 2012 Help States help themselves. Enable the targeting and tailoring of assistance. Generate relevant information for ICAO’s deliberative bodies and related Programmes. USAP Continuous Monitoring Approach

32 Secretariat Study Group Meeting
USAP-CMA Activities March 2012 Documentation-based audits Oversight-focused audits Compliance-focused audits Assistance, surveys and other monitoring activities USAP Continuous Monitoring Approach

33 Selecting Audit Activities and Identifying Priorities
Secretariat Study Group Meeting March 2012 Selecting Audit Activities and Identifying Priorities USAP-CMA activities and frequency will be tailored to the specific situation for each individual Member State based on established criteria USAP Continuous Monitoring Approach
