On behalf of the Supervisory Authority of the International Registry, the Secretariat continued to monitor the operation of the Registry to ensure that it functions efficiently in accordance with Article 17 of the Convention on International Interests in Mobile Equipment (Cape Town Convention).
The sixth meeting of the Commission of Experts of the Supervisory Authority of the International Registry (CESAIR) took place in April 2013 at ICAO Headquarters. The purpose of the meeting was to finalize consideration of the changes proposed by the Registrar to the Regulations and Procedures for the International Registry (Doc 9864) which were the subject of preliminary discussion at the fifth meeting of CESAIR in December 2012, and to make recommendations thereon to the Council.
The Council subsequently approved the recommended changes during its 199th Session. Pursuant to Article 62 (2) (c) of the Cape Town Convention and Article XXXVII (2) (c) of the Protocol to the Convention on International Interests in Mobile Equipment on Matters specific to Aircraft Equipment (Cape Town Protocol), the Supervisory Authority regularly receives information from the Depositary on ratifications, declarations, denunciations and designations of entry points.
As at 31 December 2013, there were 53 ratifications and accessions to the Cape Town Convention and Protocol.
