Safety Management Implementation Website
The fourth edition of the Safety Management Manual (SMM) (Doc 9859) was published in 2018. To further enhance the guidance provided in Doc 9859, ICAO developed a complementary website (www.icao.int/SMI) which serves as a repository for the collection and sharing of the latest practical examples, tools and best practices collected from States, service providers and international organizations, to support the implementation of SSP and SMS.
Safety Information Monitoring Service
The ICAO Safety Information Monitoring System (SIMS) is a web-based safety data and information system comprised of different applications, which generate indicators in support of State Safety Programmes (SSP) and Safety Management Systems (SMS).
The integrated Safety Trend Analysis and Reporting System (iSTARS) is a web-based system that includes a collection of safety datasets and related web applications that can be used to perform safety and risk analysis. Extracting useful information from these analyses allows the identification specific safety issues and provides decision-makers with analytics and visualization tools that drive safety strategies. The flyer can be downloaded here.
SSP Gap Analysis
Before developing an SSP implementation plan, a gap analysis of existing State systems and programmes against the ICAO SSP framework and supporting guidance material is needed to assess the existence and maturity of the respective SSP elements. To assist States in conducting an SSP gap analysis, ICAO has developed an online application, which can be found on iSTARS 3.0. All action and implementation-related information entered in the SSP gap analysis tool is treated confidentially and is not disclosed by ICAO. The flyer can be downloaded here.
State Safety Briefing
ICAO has established an application on iSTARS that provides a summarized performance dashboard for every Member State that is exportable in pdf format to email. Targets based on agreed global or regional performance targets, as applicable, are also provided. Details on each indicator are also included in the briefing.
