The Symposium will be an opportunity to enhance international cooperation on the successful implementation of practical measures in several areas. It will notably enable sharing best practices in providing assistance to accident victims and families and in management of defining the way forward for short and long‑term strategies.

The overall picture of the regulatory framework related to the Symposium topic, is provided by Annex 9 — Facilitation and Annex 13 — Aircraft Accident and Incident Investigation. In 2022, the Council adopted Amendment 29 to Annex 9 which includes a new Standard 8.47 requiring States to establish legislation, regulations and/or policies in support of such assistance. Furthermore, as adopted by the 41st Session of the Assembly (A41), Resolution A41-14, Assistance to victims of aviation accidents and their families encourages States that have legislation, regulations and/or policies to support civil aviation accident victims and their families to review these documents, as necessary, in consideration of the ICAO Policy in Doc 9998 and of the guidance material in Doc 9973.
