Produced specifically for national aviation regulators andcivil aviation authorities (CAAs), the new Handbook for CAAs on the Managementof Aviation Safety Risks related to COVID-19 (ICAO Doc 10144) was developedwith the support of aviation experts serving on the ICAO Safety ManagementPanel.

“COVID-19 has presented the entire world with many new typesof challenges, and the need to adjust how we conduct ourselves in ourday-to-day lives,” commented ICAO Secretary General Dr. Fang Liu.

“As a highly integrated and complex network, internationalaviation has not been immune to these effects, some of which pose newchallenges in managing risks which were never before considered in traditionalsafety management practices.

“ICAO therefore considered it essential to provide newguidance in this area as quickly as possible, so that the countries we supportcan continue to effectively coordinate, collaborate, and communicate to upholdthe highest possible levels of aviation safety while they maintain thecontinuity of critical operations.”

The new ICAO handbook is available compliments of the Organization on the ICAO COVID-19 Safety Risk Management website, which will contain additional links to practical information and tools which States are encouraged to stay actively updated on.

ICAO will be hosting a free ICAOTV interactive webinar to introduce the new handbook, on 14 May.
