State Safety Program (SSP)
States are required to establish an SSP aimed at achieving an acceptable level of safety (ALOS) in aviation operations. The objective is to harmonize and extend provisions relating to safety management to all categories of aviation service providers - aircraft operators, air navigation service providers, certified aerodrome operators, maintenance organizations, organizations responsible for type design and/or assembly of aircraft, and training organizations.
The Eight Critical Elements of a State Safety Oversight system form the foundation of the SSP. An SSP is an integrated set of regulations and activities aimed at improving safety. For the establishment and maintenance of the SSP, the ICAO SARPs are structured into the following four components:
a) State safety policy, objectives, and resources
b) State safety risk management
c) State safety assurance
d) State safety promotion
