New ICAO publication (Doc 10084)

Doc 10084, Risk Assessment Manual for Civil Aircraft Operations Over or Near Conflict Zones. Third edition, 2023.

This manual contains advice to States, aircraft operators (civil and military), air navigation services providers (ANSPs) and other entities deemed appropriate on the subject of risk management for civil aircraft operations over or near conflict zones. It contains consolidated guidance to support implementation of relevant International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) Standards and Recommended Practices (SARPs), ICAO guidance material and industry best practices. It covers the risk from both deliberate acts and unintentional hazards to civil aircraft operations over or near conflict zones.

States should issue and/or enable warning of threats and hazards in their sovereign and delegated airspace, including to aircraft operators and ANSPs, and coordinate activities so as to minimize threats and hazards. With the objective of assisting in this, this manual aims to provide guidance to identify the main risk factors that States could take into account.

Ultimately, aircraft operators and ANSPs are the entities responsible for conducting safety risk assessments specific to the geographical location, type and extent of their operations. Assessments should be an integral part of the risk management process implemented by these entities.
