Regional Aviation Security Conference to address common challenges through the implementation of the Global Aviation Security Plan (GASeP)
(Altis Grand Hotel, Lisbon, Portugal 29-31 May 2018)
The European and North Atlantic (EUR/NAT) Regional Conference will present a unique opportunity for all participants to share information and to learn from one another in aligning national/regional plans and strategies with the ICAO Global Aviation Security Plan (GASeP). The Conference aims to promote shared accountability for regional priorities, taking into account regional challenges and approaches to aviation security, threat and risk picture or regional infrastructure. Furthermore it is an excellent opportunity for networking and building consensus on critical priorities to set common goals and targets in tandem with the implementation of the GASeP.
In line with the United Nations Security Council Resolution 2309 (2016) and ICAO Assembly Resolution A39-18, which affirm that aviation security remains one of the highest priorities for States and the global international community, the GASeP has been developed to provide for effective, risk-based security measures which reflect the continuously evolving threat to civil aviation. The GASeP aims to bring together all the relevant aviation security stakeholders to provide a collective effort in order to ensure that sustainable aviation security measures are effectively implemented globally, regionally and at the State level.
This Conference will lead to the development of a Regional Roadmap for the EUR/NAT regions which will affirm all stakeholders commitment to the implementation of the GASeP, strengthen national and regional aviation security systems as a whole, and enhance the economic benefits to be derived from civil aviation as well as continue to promote the growth of the aviation industry within the region.
