ION 2012-011 Wearing Malagasy Code of Civil Aviation
The legislation on civil aviation are determined by Act No. 2004-027 of 9 September 2004 on the Code of Civil Aviation. If the former Code contains enough relevant provisions, it is today, however, it seems very restrictive in that it does not take into account all the concerns of the civil aviation sector with international standards and basic legal principles.
Indeed, firstly, Madagascar is party to the Convention on International Civil Aviation of 1944 (Chicago Convention), the State is subject to the obligations under the Convention to ensure proper uniform operation of Aviation International civil. Secondly, it is necessary to insert in the new text of the new legal concepts, bonds and Civil Aviation management principles developed by the Organization of International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) . In recent years, ICAO has placed particular emphasis on two priority areas: safety and security. The obligations of States to monitor these essential aspects of Civil Aviation result in the implementation of laws and regulations and control mechanism and stricter sanctions. The standardization at a level globally accepted and applied is the aim of ICAO in its audit visits. The current code only of 2004 but already has shortcomings with respect to recent developments in standards and technology, or from the recommendations of the safety and security audits. While the 2004 text included many advances over the previous response to the recommendations of an ICAO audit in 2000. But in 2008, following new recommendations of the systemic audit of ICAO, Madagascar s is committed to reviewing the legislative part of the civil aviation code to reflect all the provisions of the Chicago Convention, including those on safety oversight, legal instruments ratified by Madagascar and filed ICAO and regional and community agreements on civil aviation which it is party. The additions of the project to the current text then aim to make the most comprehensive to cover all necessary areas from the perspective of the legal framework required or recommended by ICAO. Thus, the development of this Code takes into account among others the following:
- Redefining the responsibilities of the Administration of Civil Aviation and strengthening structures that compose for a particular sector better support the point of view of safety;
- The insertion of a new title on the safety oversight of civil aviation and the introduction of new concepts advocated by ICAO, including the adoption by the operators of the Management System Security ;
- Reframing the national program of civil aviation security; - Empowerment of inspectors of Civil Aviation; - Revision and updating of the offense provisions, sanctions and penalties; - The addition of provisions which were considered missing following the audit; - Accuracy, according to the Chicago Convention, certain provisions and the terms used in parts of the draft Code; and more generally;
- Taking into consideration the provisions of key international and regional treaties of international civil aviation within the particular field of safety, security or the international air transport.
These changes affect all areas covered by seven (07) books that now make up the code after a redevelopment to better coherence:
Book I: Administration of Civil Aviation; Book II: Aerodrome; Book III: Aircraft; Book IV: Aircraft; Book V: Aviation Personnel; Book VI: Air Transport; Book VII: Enforcement and final provisions.
This is the purpose of this Act.
