Report - GMTF Threats to Aircraft

Latest update 29 May 2019


The European Civil Aviation Conference (ECAC) (acting as the representative for the International Civil Aviation Organisation ICAO) has a standing security group that meets twice a year. It is chaired by a member ECAC state and is composed of state security representatives from all ECAC states and European trade associations concerned with aviation security. The USA and Israel are also invited to participate.

Security policy by ECAC is not mandatory, however recommendations are made to Director’s General Civil Aviation for inclusion in state security programmes and are promulgated by ECAC Document 30 (to ICAO Annex 17 of the Chicago Convention).
