Expanded Use of Portable Electronic Devices

 

In response to queries from States and Industry, ICAO developed Guidelines for the Expanded Use of Portable Electronic Devices (Cir 340) in 2014. This circular provides guidance for States who wish to allow operators to transition to an expanded use of portable electronic devices (PEDs) by passengers during critical phases of flight.

 

The circular presents the series of considerations that the State should integrate into the approval process, including modifications to regulations and changes in policy and procedures, which should be required of any operator considering or planning to allow the expanded use of PEDs on its aircraft.

 

Guidance is also provided to assist operators implement the expanded use of PEDs, including:
