​Aviation Safety Risk Management related to COVID-19 for CAAs

This Implementation Package (iPACK) is a self-contained package to facilitate and guide Civil Aviation Authorities (CAAs) in the implementation of ICAO provisions. A dedicated expert will work remotely with the CAA, coaching and guiding their implementation efforts to achieve the objectives of the iPACK. 




Facilitate and guide Civil Aviation Authorities (CAAs) in applying safety risk management principles to improve decisions making to address COVID-19 challenges and support safe aircraft operations.




After having successfully implemented this iPACK, Civil Aviation Authorities will be better equipped to:

  1. Improve the effectiveness of remote collaboration, coordination and communication among the stakeholders involved in  addressing the pandemic; 
  2. Improve the use of safety data and information to support decision-making for the restart of aviation activities;
  3. Increase the capability of CAAs to assess their priorities during the COVID-19 pandemic and plan for the restart of aviation operations; 
  4. Increase the State's capability to appropriately apply safety risk mitigations; 
  5. Improve strategies for planning and conducting surveillance using a risk-based approach; and
  6. Achieve progress in the implementation and maturity of the State safety programme (SSP)
