— ICAO should develop, in close collaboration with
States, international and national organizations, a new Annex
dedicated to safety management responsibilities and processes which
would address the safety management responsibilities of States
framed under the State Safety Programme (SSP).
— The new Safety Management Annex should facilitate the provision of State and air carrier safety information to the travelling public, in addition to specifying the high level safety responsibilities of States.
— First phase (e.g. Annex19, first Edition) focused on the reorganization of the existing Standards
and Recommended Practices (SARPs) and supporting guidance material.
— Second phase ( e.g. next iteration of Annex19) to focus on further development of the Safety Management Annex and related provisions in other Annexes.
— Annex 19, first Edition was purposely limited to
the consolidation of existing safety management provisions.
— Minor modifications were made as necessary for the purposes of clarity and consistency.
— In addition, four main amendments were made for harmonization purposes
The ICAO Council unanimously adopted the first edition of Annex 19 with an applicability date of 14 November 2013.×
