Future ICAO work

​ICAO continues to develop measures aimed at mitigating the impact of aircraft noise, and to support this ICAO continues to develop international standards, guidance material, and technical documentation as appropriate for the needs of the international community. This includes the maintenance of Annex 16, the environmental technical manuals, and the ICAO noise databank.

For the CAEP11 cycle (2016-2019) the work on noise will focus on:
  • monitoring and reporting on the various national and international research programme goals and milestones; 
  • conducting an integrated aircraft-level technology assessment of aeroplanes that includes both noise and emissions;
  • continuing to develop a certification Standard for possible future supersonic aircraft.
Making sure that the international Standards, guidance material, and technical documentation are all up-to-date and are appropriate for the needs of the international community, is crucial to the ICAO objective of reducing or limiting the number of people affected by aircraft noise.​
