International Civil Aviation Organization is the UN’s specialized agency with 191 Member States which has been created through the Chicago Convention in 1944. The organization develops principles and technique of the international air navigation, routes, aerodromes and promotes the planning and development of international air transport. Chicago Convention’s Annexes are the milestones in both international and national aviation law and guarantee a safe, efficient and sustainable development. ICAO’s regulatory activity is composed of SARPs (Standards and Recommended Practices) contained in the Annexes, procedures and guidelines which standardize at a global level.
Other than the General HQ in Montreal, the organization has created several regional offices which guarantee the uniform application of the regulation in the region of their competence. The European office is in Paris where the European Air Navigation Planning Group (EANPG) is responsible for the planning definition in the EUR area.
ENAV is involved both at global and at regional level by working in groups responsible for ATM-related subjects. ENAV’s experts involvement allows the company to fully monitor and take part to the development of rules in the field of operations, technological systems and training.
