ICAO GLOBAL AVIATION SAFETY PLAN (GASP)

The Global Aviation Safety Plan (GASP) sets out a strategy which supports the prioritization and continuous improvement of civil aviation safety. The GASP provides a framework for the development and implementation of regional, sub-regional and national plans. Through this document, ICAO promotes harmonization and coordination of efforts aimed at improving international civil aviation safety.

 

Purpose of the GASP

 

The overall purpose of the GASP is to guide the harmonized development of regional and State safety planning, supported by regional safety activities coordinated by the regional aviation safety groups (RASGs). The GASP seeks to assist States and regions in their respective safety policies, planning and implementation by:

a) establishing the global safety priorities and GASP objectives;

b) providing a planning framework, timelines and guidance material; and

c) presenting implementation strategies and a global aviation safety roadmap to address the procedures 

    and methods to achieve the GASP objectives and set specific priorities at both State and regional levels

    as well as the role of industry partners.

 

GASP Objectives

 

The GASP includes objectives for States to meet through the implementation of effective safety oversight systems, State safety programmes (SSPs) and the development of advanced safety oversight systems, including predictive risk management. The GASP also sets out timelines for the global collective achievement of these near-, mid- and long-term objectives.

 

 

Global Aviation Safety Roadmap

 

The global aviation safety roadmap is an action plan developed to assist the aviation community in achieving the objectives presented in the GASP. It provides a structured, common frame of reference for all relevant stakeholders. The roadmap's goal is to ensure that safety initiatives deliver the intended benefits associated with the GASP objectives through enhanced coordination, thus reducing inconsistencies and duplication of effort. The GASP includes instructions on how to use the roadmap to facilitate its implementation.

 


Global Aviation Safety Plan Study Group (GASP-SG)

 

The GASP-SG is the ICAO study group who develops and maintains the GASP, which guides the harmonized development of regional and State safety planning, supported by regional safety activities coordinated by the RASGs​. The GASP-SG seeks to assist States and regions in their respective safety policies, planning and implementation by providing expert advice to the ICAO Secretariat. Its membership is composed of experts from civil aviation authorities, airlines, aircraft manufacturers and international organizations.
