ICAO team in India to conduct security audit

A four-man team from the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) began its nine-day security audit of India’s aviation sector.

The said audit will see the ICAO team review the regulatory framework and the civil aviation security system of the country. The audit, which is part of the UN agency’s Universal Security Audit Program, would last until March 15.

The program seeks to encourage aviation security all throughout the globe through consistent and continuous auditing and monitoring of aviation security performance of the member states numbering 191.

The ICAO team will take a close look at airport operations such as passenger and baggage security as well as cargo, catering and mail security.

It will also evaluate the training of aviation security personnel, quality control functions, aircraft and in-flight security and response to acts of unlawful interference.

The ICAO team would also be paying a visit to the Chennai airport for three days. There, the team would be taking a look at cargo facilities that are being operated by AAI, Blue Dart, Air India and Jet Airways.
