Safety Reports

The Annual ICAO Safety Report provides updates on safety indicators, including accidents and related risk factors.

Improving the safety of the global air transport system is ICAO’s guiding and most fundamental strategic objective. The Organization works constantly to address and enhance global aviation safety through coordinated activities and targets outlined in its Global Aviation Safety Plan (GASP).

The GASP initiatives are monitored by ICAO’s appraisal of global and regional aviation safety metrics on the basis of established risk management principles — a core component of contemporary State Safety Programmes (SSP) and Safety Management Systems (SMS). In all of its coordinated safety activities, ICAO strives to achieve a balance between assessed risk and the requirements of practical, achievable and effective risk mitigation strategies.
