Security and Facilitation

Air Transport Bureau

Initially, ICAO’s security-related work focused on developing Standards and Recommended Practices (SARPs) for inclusion in Annex 17. Over the years, its work in the field of aviation security broadened and today is essentially carried out in three inter-related areas: policy initiatives, audits focused on the capability of Member States to oversee their aviation security activities, and assistance to States that are unable to address serious security deficiencies highlighted by ICAO audits.
 
The Facilitation Section of Aviation Security and Facilitation is responsible for the management of three interrelated programmes:
 
These three programmes have the same objective, facilitation, which is the efficient management of border control processes to expedite clearance (of aircraft, passengers/crew, baggage, cargo) and prevent unnecessary delays.
