The Civil Aviation Directorate of the Republic of Serbia has introduced the implementation plan for the National Civil Aviation Security Programme in the meeting which was attended by the representatives from the Ministry of Infrastructure and the Civil Aviation Directorate.
The implementation plan for the National Civil Aviation Security Programme consists of systematic measures and standards aimed at achieving a higher level of security while minimizing risks. These standards are prescribed by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and they have yet to be adopted by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and the European Union.
Experts from the Civil Aviation Directorate in collaboration with the colleagues from the Ministry of Infrastructure have defined three implementation phases that should cover a time frame from 2011-2015. Duties and responsibilities of all parties involved in the development and implementation of the program were developed and deadlines for their implementation given.
Since the beginning of the plan development in 2010, Serbia became one of the ten countries which have actively begun implementing the measures that will raise the level of national civil aviation security.
State Secretary from the Ministry of Infrastructure, Miodrag Miljkovic, stressed that Serbia is fully prepared to tackle this extremely important and serious obligation in a timely manner. Very good cooperation between the Ministry of Infrastructure and the Civil Aviation Directorate has resulted in the quality action plan which will be put forward at the first session of the Aviation Safety Subcommittee.
Adoption of the National Civil Aviation Security Program, according to Mr. Miljković, would place Serbia among one of the most advanced countries in Europe and world when it comes to civil aviation, and enhance security on a both local and global level.
