IATA CAA Compliance with ICAO SARPS* aviation training course

A complete and up-to-date legal and regulatory framework constitutes the foundations of an effective civil aviation system which is safe, secure, regular, sustainable and efficient. Some States may need a reform of their civil aviation laws and regulations due to existing legal and regulatory instruments being outdated or not covering the latest amendments to the ICAO Standards and Recommended Practices (SARPs); gaps in critical areas related to safety and security oversight, or inadequate provisions for economic or environmental aspects of civil aviation law and regulations. IATA's CAA Compliance with ICAO SARPS course is designed to provide the essential knowledge and skills which will enable State officials at all levels to adequately plan, manage, control and update State civil aviation laws and regulations in order to adequately reflect national policies and to comply with international obligations.

*This course has been recognized by the Quebec Bar Association and will provide 30 CLI credits.
