Description

This material is intended to help States assess their State Safety Programs (SSP). Use of this tool is voluntary; however, it can be used for initial assessment or continuous improvement of an SSP. The tool is based on a series of questions or expectations that can be used by a State to assess the effectiveness of its SSP. It requires an interaction with all SSP stakeholders including face-to-face discussions and interviews with a cross section of people as part of the assessment. It has been designed to indicate the State’s level of compliance with the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) SSP Framework. It also attempts to integrate the SSP approach and the Eight Critical Elements (CE) of a Safety Oversight System, where applicable. It also has been developed to harmonize SSP implementation and assessment globally, thereby establishing a common standard for evaluating compliance and effectiveness of the SSP. Furthermore, the tool has also been designed to allow any State to use and adapt the tool to serve its own purposes based on the size and complexity of the State’s aviation system.
