State Safety Programme

State Safety ProgramME

Annex 19 to the Convention on International Civil Aviation (also referred to as the Chicago Convention), applicable November 2013, sets the standards for a State Safety Programme (SSP) and places the responsibility to implement such a programme on all contracting States. BCAA has developed a manual which describes Bermuda's SSP for the implementation of Annex 19 Standards and Recommended Practices (SARP). It can be viewed here.

Bermuda has also developed a Safety Plan to identify the activities that will be undertaken from 2020 to 2022 to continue strengthening Bermuda’s safety oversight system, and to improve the systematic and proactive management of safety on an ongoing basis. This plan consists of a summary of the BCAA’s accomplishments in 2019 and a presentation of the selected safety objectives for 2020 to 2022.

1 Note: Bermuda, as an Overseas Territory of the United Kingdom, is not an International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) Contracting State in its own right. The use of the term "State" reflects that Bermuda is exercising state functions on behalf of the United Kingdom.
