The Sixth Worldwide Air Transport Conference (ATConf/6), held from 18 to 22 March 2013, recommended that “ICAO should develop a compendium of competition policies and practices in force nationally or regionally" (recommendation 2.4/1 g).
This online Compendium of competition laws, regulations and practices, along with forms of cooperation in the field of competition, has been developed by ICAO on the basis of information collected from its Member States through a Competition Survey carried out in June 2015 and supplemented with research from publicly available information sources. In addition to individual States, information is also provided, whenever available, on regional organizations.

In order for ICAO to keep enhancing the coverage and the quality of the information provided in this Compendium, States and regional organizations are encouraged to submit contributions for additions, changes or updates to the ICAO Secretariat at:
