Analysis of regional oversight organization as the ultimate form of cooperation in aviation safety and security oversight

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Audit of civil aviation authorities have revealed areas of deficiencies. There have been an increasing number of initiatives to develop cooperative frameworks between States to address aviation safety oversight deficiencies. The spectrum of cooperation can range from resource sharing and partnership to bilateral and multi-lateral agreements. Regional Oversight Organization (ROO) is clearly the ultimate form of cooperation among civil aviation authorities requiring the greatest level of delegation of sovereignty in oversight. This paper reviews different mechanisms of cooperation and reasons for regional oversight organizations becoming more attractive to Civil Aviation Authority (CAAs). It also examines critical issues associated with a framework for developing, sustaining, and making effective an oversight organization with a regional scope.
