International Civil Aviation Organization

International Civil Aviation Organization
An agency under the aegis of the United Nations whose main objective is to develop the principles and techniques of international air navigation and foster planning and development of international civil air transport. The main convention of ICAO has eighteen annexes, which lay down standards that all member states are expected to incorporate into their aviation law. It also recommends practices. Together, these are known as SARPs (Standard and Recommended Practices). If countries cannot comply with them, ICAO should be notified. This is often done in a country’s aeronautical information publication (AIP).
