The UN’s International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) has signed technical information sharing agreements to boost standards with RTCA, the European Organization for Civil Aviation Equipment (EUROCAE), SAE International, and ARINC Industry Activities.

ICAO said that the four agreements will help ensure better alignment throughout international aviation standards.

The collaboration with these organisations will support more integrated sectoral standards for communications, navigation, and surveillance (CNS) systems and air traffic management (ATM).

ICAO secretary general Fang Liu said: “The exchange of information permitted by these new agreements will be very helpful to ICAO’s efforts to develop mature and comprehensive standards for international civil aviation.

“These agreements will directly support improved sectoral performance for aviation’s safety, sustainability and efficiency.”

“Industry standards serve unique and often complementary roles in support of global air navigation objectives, which underscore the importance of ICAO’s provisions being fully compatible with the efforts of these new partners.”

The agreements will support the work of the important agencies responsible for standards affecting international aviation operations.
