The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) amended the Conflict Zone Information Repository (CZIR) procedures following a scheduled one-year review of the CZIR.
CZIR postings will now be restricted to information which strictly pertains to conflict zones, and posts will only be made immediately available when the risk information is submitted by the State where the conflict is occurring.
Provision has also been made to continue to permit a State to post conflict zone warnings regarding another State’s sovereign airspace, when there is no disagreement between the submitting State and the implicated State.
States retain the right to post global aviation safety and security risk warnings on their respective national websites, and the ICAO CZIR will now be amended to include links to those individual State pages.
States will also continue to make use of the existing Aviation Security Point of Contact (POC) Network to share critical security-related threat and risk information.
