A40 SkyTalks: ICAO’s Universal Safety Oversight Audit Programme


Watch as Thormodsson Thormodur, ICAO Acting Chief, Safety and Air Navigation Oversight Audit Section, describes how the Universal Safety Oversight Audit Programme (USOAP) audits and other related activities help States provide safety oversight by assessing whether the State has effectively and consistently implemented the critical elements (CEs) of a safety oversight system. This enables the State to ensure the implementation of ICAO’s safety-related Standards and Recommended Practices (SARPs) and associated procedures and guidance material.

During the A40 Assembly, ICAO will be broadcasting SkyTalks workshops that will be shared with a broader audience throughout the year. These SkyTalks share the knowledge of authoritative presenters and knowledgeable industry professionals. The format includes 30-minute presentations in front of a live conference audience. The recorded presentations are being shared with the public through this blog and our associated social media platforms, reaching hundreds of thousands of aviation professionals online.
