Recognizing that aviation safety and security is a collective responsibility of all the aviation stakeholders, ICAO has maintained a steady partnership and collaboration with CANSO. The 2019 CANSO Asia Pacific Conference was hosted by the Japan Air Navigation Services (JANS) in Fukuoka, Japan from 22-24 May 2019. The conference examined how ANSPs in the region can navigate a rapidly changing ATM landscape arising from strong traffic growth, technological disruption and new airspace users.
Also, ‘Management of Change’ provisions in ICAO Annex 19 denotes the key risk management process to manage safety risks and provide the link between changes/innovations initiated for the improvement of capacity and efficiency and safety management. A change management process would ensure the desired efficiency and capacity outcomes are achieved without compromising safety performance.
