Kazakhstan passed the audit on ICAO aviation security

The improved indicator of Kazakhstan exceeds the average world level of 72% by 11%.

Kazakhstan successfully passed an audit of aviation security of the international civil aviation organization (ICAO) and confirmed the high level of compliance with international standards. This was reported by the Civil Aviation Committee of the Ministry for Investments and Development of Kazakhstan on the official Facebook page, BNews.kz reported.

"The level of compliance of the Civil Aviation Committee of the Ministry for Investments and Development with the requirements of the ICAO officially amounted to 83%, which is 21% better than the audit indicator of 2009, which was 62%. The improved indicator of Kazakhstan exceeds the average world level of 72% by 11%," the committee said.

We note that the ICAO audit is one of the most important objective tools for assessing the security system of civil aviation of the state. If there are significant observations and a low assessment of the results of the audit of the ICAO, serious negative consequences may occur as a restriction on flights by other countries.

The Aviation Security Audit is a comprehensive security audit of airports. An expert assessment was conducted on 480 key issues in November 2017, compared to the previous audit of 2009, consisting of 299 issues, which clearly demonstrates the toughening of requirements of the ICAO.

It became quite difficult for countries to pass audits of the ICAO and in this connection the high level of assessment of Kazakhstan by experts of the ICAO becomes even more significant.

Following the audit of 2017, Kazakhstan was included into a group of countries that take leading positions in the world according to the level of aviation security.
