Civil Aviation Legal Advisers Forum
The inaugural Civil Aviation Legal Advisors’ Forum (CALAF) was organized by the Legal Bureau (LEB) and hosted in Singapore in May 2019. More than 80 legal advisors from 40 States and one regional organization participated in the Forum. CALAF participants shared views on the effective implementation of international air law treaties and Standards and Recommended Practices (SARPs), discussed recent developments and emerging issues impacting the development of future air law, and welcomed the Forum as a new platform for informal discussion and constructive exchange of knowledge and experience. The Assembly adopted at its 40th Session a resolution, inter alia, inviting Member States to support the CALAF initiative and to consider hosting subsequent editions of the Forum, as well as encouraging their legal advisors to actively participate in ICAO’s work in the legal field.
