ICAO EUR/NAT Regional Office team actively participated in the ICAO Regional Safety Management Symposium convened in Tallinn, Estonia from 16 to 18 October 2017. Attended by around 250 participants from the Region, the Symposium provided a unique information-sharing opportunity for regulators, service providers, operational personnel and other aviation professionals involved in safety management activities.
The participants shared the current and future challenges in safety management faced by the international aviation community, discussed benefits of safety management and its contribution to the future air transportation system, reviewed the implementation of integrated risk management, shared insights on how to effectively implement the State safety programme (SSP) and conduct oversight of its service providers' safety management systems (SMS). The symposium was concluded with a workshop focused on the more practical aspects of safety management implementation both from industry and regulatory perspectives.
This event is another important example of the direct assistance ICAO provides to States in the true spirit of the No Country Left Behind Campaign. Promotion of regional ICAO activities in the field of safety management implementation and improvement of regional safety performance was another great achievement.
