The Air Navigation Bureau manages the Safety and Infrastructure strategies of ICAO in a partnership with aviation stakeholders. This work is carried out within a framework with the following elements:
- Policy and Standardization,
- Safety and Infrastructure monitoring,
- Safety and Infrastructure Analysis, and
- Safety and Infrastructure Implementation.
The ANB also leads ICAO’s efforts related to crises and contingencies.
Policy and Standardization
Under the organization's Safety and Infrastructure Policy and Standardization strategy, the Air Navigation Bureau develops and maintains the Global Aviation Safety Plan and the Global Air Navigation Plan. These are put into action by all the sections within the ANB, all the Regional Offices of the organization as well as through Regional Aviation Safety Groups (RASGs) and Regional Planning and Implementation Groups (PIRGs) both of which include States and Aviation Partners from within a defined region.
Aviation risks are often complex and require a coordinated multi-disciplinary response with all stakeholders involved. Click on the safety initiatives listed on the left to find out more about how ICAO and its partners are addressing these.
