The Ministry of Transport and Communications of the Kyrgyz Republic has entered into an agreement with CAA International (CAAi) to review and update the country’s State Safety Programme (SSP) per ICAO Standards and Recommended Practices.
Funded by the World Bank’s International Development Association, the project forms part of the Kyrgyz Republic’s goal to develop and grow the country’s aviation sector.
CAAi Technical Advisors are working with their Kyrgyz Republic counterparts to review, update, and implement a revised ICAO-compliant State Safety Programme. The SSP will need to meet the specific conditions of the civil aviation system in the Kyrgyz Republic. The project includes training for inspectorate of State Civil Aviation Agency (SCAA) staff and industry personnel responsible for safety compliance. The training will cover theoretical and practical courses to support the application of the revised State Safety Programme, covering the implementation of safety performance indicators, safety performance targets, safety risk assessments, and hazard identification plans, among others.
By the end of the project, the Ministry of Transport and Communications plan to demonstrate greater levels of safety oversight in the Kyrgyz Republic, and in conjunction with other safety programmes, help the country grow its international air transport network.
