ICAO developed a dedicated site on its secure portal for the regional aviation safety groups (RASGs) to collect emerging issues and additional categories of operational safety risks.
Each State is responsible for updating their information on the secure portal site, on a regular basis. Information from individual States is collected by each RASG and used to identify emerging issues, safety hazards, and to conduct regional risk assessments.
Safety information gathered is useful for the RASGs to update the regional aviation safety plans (RASP). It is also useful for ICAO to consider, when developing future editions of the GASP. States can provide information anonymously. The purpose of this site is not to identify State-specific deficiencies but rather to provide a platform where States can communicate emerging issues and additional categories of operational safety risks to the RASGs and to ICAO. This site is only accessible through approved log-in credentials.
The emerging issues and additional categories of operational safety risks portal can be access directly on the ICAO secure portal (log in required).
Users should read and
familiarise themselves with the Policy on the Use of the ICAO Emerging Issues and Ops Safety Risks Portal prior to using the site.
For consistency of reporting, States and regions are encouraged to use the aviation occurrence categories from the Commercial Aviation Safety Team (CAST)/ICAO Common Taxonomy Team (CICTT) when completing forms in the secure portal site.
