Its purpose is to provide Information for regulators and operators on how to implement the SARPs, which will become applicable on 8 November 2018.
1.2.2 The information contained in this circular is based on current industry best practices and on the use of readily available or emerging technologies. It is intended to support the uniform implementation of the aircraft tracking SARPs and complies with the Recommendations of the Second ICAO High-level Safety Conference (HLSC 2015).
