A Directors General of Civil Aviation Conference on a Global Strategy for Aviation Safety was held in March 2006 at ICAO Headquarters in Montreal. The conference recommended that ICAO develop an ongoing process to allow for the release of relevant information to the public on safety oversight audits, so that the travelling public can make an informed decision when using air transportation.
To this end, Contracting States were encouraged to provide ICAO their consent to publish safety oversight audit information consisting at a minimum, of a chart which reflects the results of the latest Safety Oversight Audit carried out in their state. While some States have given ICAO authority to disclose a chart depicting the audit results, others have agreed to the release of the audit report in its entirety.
This page contains the audit information for all ICAO Contracting States pertaining to audits conducted under the Comprehensive Systems Approach (CSA) of the ICAO Universal Safety Oversight Audit Programme (USOAP).
It is important to note that (as the process for providing consent was established only when the audit cycle was already under way) for some States whose audit results have not been finalized, their consent has not yet been requested.
