Turkey`s Success in Aviation Security Certified by the ICAO

The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) granted Turkey the “Council President Certificate” for success achieved in aviation security.

According to the assessment made on the basis of the success rate in the audit made by the ICAO to the member states, Turkey was granted a certificate by achieving progress in the success rate of “Implementation of Critical Elements of an Aviation Security Oversight System” which increased from 64.9% to 93.15% in the audits carried out in the years 2008 and 2014.

Since 2015, the ICAO has been granting a “Council President Aviation Security Certificate” to the states that significantly achieve progress in the “Implementation of Critical Elements of an Aviation Security Oversight System” in USAP-CMA audits to encourage member states to attain achievements in security. In order to obtain this certificate, an effective implementation (EI) success rate of at least 15% must be achieved and a minimum of 65 effective implementation successes based on the Global Aviation Security Plan (GASeP) must be achieved. In addition, it is stipulated that there should be no significant Security Concern warning about the member state, and it is necessary to achieve over 65 in operational effective implementation rates.

Stating that Turkey`s standards in civil aviation security is much higher than the global average, Bahri Kesici - Director General of Civil Aviation said that Turkey has achieved a 30% increase in effective implementation rate over six years by fulfilling all the requirements of the ICAO`s security certificate. Director General of Civil Aviation Bahri Kesici also stated that member states are audited on aviation security periodically by the ICAO and 14 other states achieving over 15% in security aviation implementations were granted certificates, and he thanked DGCA personnel contributing to the receipt of such an important certificate.
