International Civil Aviation Organization

(ICAO), specialized agency of the United Nations, organized in 1947, with headquarters at Montreal. The objective of the ICAO, which has 190 member nations, is to encourage the orderly growth of international civil aviation, establishing uniform standards for aircraft markings, airworthiness, and licensing of pilots. Its strategic objectives are to provide safe, secure, sustainable, and efficient global civil aviation, to minimize aviation's adverse effects on the environment, and to strengthen the laws governing international civil aviation. The ICAO is governed by a board elected by its members (civil airport authorities), which meets annually. A directorate general implements board policies and may act as arbiter between states in disputes in the interpretation of the Chicago Convention on International Civil Aviation of 1944 (see air, law of theair, law of the,

International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO)

An agency under the aegis of the United Nations whose main objective is to develop the principles and techniques of international air navigation and foster planning and development of international civil air transport. The main convention of ICAO has eighteen annexes, which lay down standards that all member states are expected to incorporate into their aviation law. It also recommends practices. Together, these are known as SARPs (Standard and Recommended Practices). If countries cannot comply with them, ICAO should be notified. This is often done in a country's aeronautical information publication (AIP).
