FAQ n.21843

What are the basic considerations for this policy?


The ICAO legal framework aims at a global system of graded responsibilities for the State of Design (SoD) and the State of Registry (SoR). In this system, the SoR authority relies to a large extent on the oversight activities performed by the SoD. From this perspective, accepting applications from foreign design organisations without any further conditions compared to applications from “domestic” organisations would be too far-reaching and leading to the deterioration of central ICAO principles, namely the SoD principle.
