authorizing the ratification of the revised Convention on the Agency for the Safety of Air Navigation in Africa and Madagascar in Ouagadougou adopted and signed in Libreville, April 28, 2010
Following findings of shortcomings of the Convention on the Agency for the Safety of Air Navigation in Africa and Madagascar (ASECNA) 1974, member states of ASECNA decided proceed to the adoption of a revised Convention both the form and substance of the Convention. On the form, these revisions have focused on the architecture of the revised Convention, which now includes seven appendices as attached to this statement: I
. International status of the Agency (new); II. List of airspace assigned to ASECNA (new); III. List of airports entrusted to the Agency (new); IV. List of facilities contributing to the safety of international air navigation
operated by the Agency (new); V. Statute of the Agency (revised); VI. Specification (Revised); VII. Status code and remuneration of staff (new).
Revisions to the Convention on the bottom are characterized by:
- reframing the scope of the Agency's mission, refocused on the heart of the profession (Article 1, 2, Convention);
- Integration of training activities (Article 2, Convention); - Supervision of the management of national activities assigned to the
Agency (Article 10, Convention); - Clarifying the legal regime of the assets of the Agency (International status); - Clarifying the division of powers particularly for the
Ministers Committee (Article 3 Convention);
- The strengthening of the financial system and control (Article 15, Convention). Such revisions are the answers to the concerns of Member States and give the Agency the essential tools for good governance, its focus on its core missions and improving its efficiency. It is particularly useful for Madagascar to proceed with the ratification of the revised Convention to the extent that it will lay the solid foundation for aviation safety in the Member States in particular through the coordination of activities related to the Agency's missions (training , research). Furthermore, the revised Convention is not yet in force. Madagascar as a signatory ratify the act of signing the ratification and contribute to its entry into force. The revised Convention was adopted in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso 12 January 2010 and signed in Libreville, Gabon on 28 April 2010. As of August 2, 2011, seven countries have ratified the Convention. This is the purpose of this Act.
