Aquino gov’t welcomes move of the ICAO team to recommend lifting of significant safety concerns issued against PH 

THE Aquino administration welcomed the move of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) team to recommend the lifting of Significant Safety Concerns (SSCs) issued against the country, a Palace official said on Monday. 

"Last month, the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) sent a Coordinated Validation Mission to inspect the efforts of the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) to comply with international aviation safety standards, and address significant safety concerns identified by the ICAO," Deputy Presidential Spokesperson Abigail Valte said in a statement during the regular press briefing in Malacanang on Monday. 

Valte said the ICAO Coordinated Validation Mission Team had informed the government that it will recommend to the ICAO Headquarters in Montreal, Canada the lifting of the SSCs. 

"Before they left, the ICAO team expressed great satisfaction with what they found, and said they would make a recommendation to the ICAO headquarters in Montreal, Canada, that the significant safety concerns previously issued to the Philippines be lifted," she said. 

In a letter to the CAAP dated March 1, the ICAO stated that the SSC Validation Committee “has determined that the corrective actions taken by the Philippines have successfully addressed and resolved” the SSCs." 

"With this positive development, the CAAP will continue to coordinate with the European Union and the Federal Aviation Administration about upgrading the country’s aviation status," Valte said. (PND)
