Immediately after the effective date a letter is sent

Immediately after the Effective Date, a letter is sent announcing that the amendment has become effective and the Secretariat takes action to issue the “Blue Edition” which is the form of the amendment suitable for incorporation in the Annex or PANS. On the Applicability Date, States must implement the amendments unless, of course, they have notified differences. To limit the frequency of Annex and PANS amendments, the Council has established one common applicability date for each year. This date is chosen from the schedule for the regulation of amendments to Aeronautical Information Regulation and Control (AIRAC) for the month of November. The result of this adoption procedure is that the new or amended Standards and Recommended Practices become part of the relevant Annex. It takes on average two years from the Preliminary Review by the ANC to the applicability date. Although this process may seem lengthy at first glance, it provides for repeated consultation and extensive participation of States and international organizations in producing a consensus based on logic and experience.

The third “C”, compliance, brings this comprehensive regulatory system to life. Implementation of SARPs/Universal Safety Oversight Audit Programme Under the Convention on International Civil Aviation, the implementation of SARPs lies with Contracting States. To help them in the area of safety, ICAO established in 1999 a Universal Safety Oversight Audit Programme. The Programme consists of regular, mandatory, systematic and harmonized safety audits carried out by ICAO in all Contracting States. The Continuous Monitoring and Oversight (CMO) Section of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) has been recertified to the ISO 9001:2008 standard for quality management systems. It is the first Section within ICAO, and one of the very few within the United Nations, to receive such compliance. The objective is to promote global aviation safety by determining the status of implementation of relevant ICAO SARPs, associated procedures and safety-related practices. The audits are conducted within the context of critical elements of a State’s safety oversight system. These include the appropriate legislative and regulatory framework; a sound organizational structure; technical guidance; qualified personnel; licensing and certification procedures; continued surveillance and the resolution of identified safety concerns. Since its inception, the Programme has proved effective in identifying safety concerns in the safety-related fields under its scope, while providing recommendations for their resolution. The Programme is being gradually expanded to include aerodromes, air traffic services, aircraft accident and incident investigation and other safety-related fields.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
