Acting EUR/NAT Regional Director 


Welcome to the European and North Atlantic (EUR/NAT) Office of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO). The EUR/NAT Office, located in Paris, promotes and monitors the implementation of ICAO’s international aviation Standards and Recommended Practices (SARPs) in 56 Member States of ICAO (out of 193) to which it is accredited. In addition, upon States’ request, this Office also provides training and technical guidance for the effective implementation of ICAO SARPs, the global regulatory reference to ensure a safer, more efficient and environmentally friendly aviation activities across the nine ICAO Aviation Regions, including Europe and North Atlantic.


With a geographical area of responsibility stretching from the North Pole to the Sahara and from the Eastern Coast of North America to the Bering Strait (i.e. across 14 time zones), the EUR/NAT Office is faced with a wide variety of geopolitical diversity, airspace features and operational challenges. Nevertheless, thanks to the outstanding contributions from States, International and Regional Organizations, Airlines, Airports, Air Navigation Service Providers, Aviation Manufacturers and other important aviation stakeholders, the EUR/NAT Office is able to serve as the regional safety and security forum where harmonized and timely aviation planning and implementation are discussed and  agreed upon for both the North Atlantic and European Regions of ICAO.
