Functions of the Council

​ICAO Council States collectively define the Mission and Vision of ICAO, convene triennial ICAO Assemblies, and appoint the Secretary General of the ICAO Secretariat.

They also provide continuing direction toward the amendment or adoption of international Standards and Recommended Practices (SARPs) into the Annexes to the Chicago Convention.

Council States may also be called upon to arbitrate between Member States on matters relevant to the Chicago Convention and civilian aviation, issue statements or condemnations reflecting their diplomatic consensus, or call for investigations into international aviation matters of high concern. 

In every instance the Council seeks to forge progress through the consensus of its elected States, and in support of the strategic objectives it adopts to guide international air transport prioritization and progress.
