L’Organisation de l’aviation civile internationale (OACI) est une institution spécialisée des Nations Unies établie par les États en 1944 pour gérer et administrer la Convention relative à l’aviation civile internationale (Convention de Chicago). L’OACI œuvre de concert avec les 191 États signataires de la Convention et des groupes du secteur à l’établissement d’un consensus sur des normes et pratiques recommandées (SARP) et des politiques en matière d’aviation civile internationale servant de base à un secteur de l’aviation civile sûr et efficace, dont le développement soit économiquement durable et écologiquement responsable. Ces SARP et politiques sont utilisées par les États membres de l’OACI pour s’assurer que leurs opérations et réglementations locales d’aviation civile sont conformes aux normes mondiales, ce qui permet au réseau mondial de transport aérien d’exploiter plus de 100 000 vols par jour, en toute sécurité et avec efficacité dans toutes les régions du monde. Outre qu’elle s’efforce essentiellement d’établir entre ses États membres et l’industrie un consensus sur les SARP et politiques internationales, et parallèlement à de nombreux autres programmes et priorités, l’OACI : coordonne l’assistance et le renforcement des capacités pour les États, en appui à de nombreux objectifs de développement de l’aviation ; produit des plans mondiaux pour coordonner les progrès stratégiques multilatéraux dans les domaines de la sécurité et de la navigation aérienne ; suit de nombreuses mesures de performance du secteur du transport aérien et en rend compte ; et effectue des audits des capacités de supervision de l’aviation civile des États dans les domaines de la sûreté et de la sécurité.
The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) is a UN specialized agency, established by States in 1944 to manage the administration and governance of the Convention on International Civil Aviation (Chicago Convention). ICAO works with the Convention’s 191 Member States and industry groups to reach consensus on international civil aviation Standards and Recommended Practices (SARPs) and policies in support of a safe, efficient, secure, economically sustainable and environmentally responsible civil aviation sector. These SARPs and policies are used by ICAO Member States to ensure that their local civil aviation operations and regulations conform to global norms, which in turn permits more than 100,000 daily flights in aviation’s global network to operate safely and reliably in every region of the world. In addition to its core work resolving consensus-driven international SARPs and policies among its Member States and industry, and among many other priorities and programmes, ICAO also coordinates assistance and capacity building for States in support of numerous aviation development objectives; produces global plans to coordinate multilateral strategic progress for safety and air navigation; monitors and reports on numerous air transport sector performance metrics; and audits States’ civil aviation oversight capabilities in the areas of safety and security.
