In September, CAAi International (CAAi), the technical advisory arm of the UK CAA, completed an evaluation of the management systems at the Department of Aviation, Ministry of Transport and Communications of the Republic of Belarus. The project was funded by the European Union and delivered in the framework of the Eastern Partnership and Central Asian countries assistance and support in civil aviation (EaP/CA). The project was led by the UK CAA and managed by CAAi.

Belarus’ capital, Minsk, has become a popular destination for European visitors. The country has a geographically strategic position, situated between the European Union and the Eurasian Economic Union. Aviation is a vital element in supporting the tourism and business sectors with flights to many countries in Europe and the wider world.

CAAi’s experts conducted a review of the current specific administration system (safety oversight system) of the Belarus Authority and provided a gap analysis in the functional structure and core processes, in the areas of Legislation, Organisation, Resources, Safety Management Systems, Safety Oversight and Staff Training.

After the four-day in-country evaluation, the experts proposed improvement recommendations of the functional structure and core processes, implementation plans for new and modified functions and updated training programmes for the Belarus’ Department of Aviation.

Upon the project delivery, Andrew Varley, CAAi Senior Technical Advisor said: “It was our great pleasure to work with the Belarus’ Department of Aviation on this project. We hope that the authority will have the capacity to implement the recommendations and that our work will help Belarus to enhance their civil aviation oversight capabilities and increase overall passenger safety”.
