 About the workshop 

The ECAC CORSIA regional workshop was organised in the framework of the ECAC Bratislava Declaration. In announcing the 44 ECAC Member States' commitment to implement CORSIA from the start, the ECAC Bratislava Declaration has positively contributed to the credibility of the voluntary approach in the initial phases of CORSIA and thus to the historic agreement reached at the 39th ICAO Assembly.

This regional commitment was possible thanks to ECAC States' additional commitment to strive to address any future needs that may arise from States requiring technical assistance and capacity building, in order to stand ready for implementation of the CORSIA scheme.

The workshop has been organised in a common endeavour by Turkey, Germany and ECAC, and in cooperation with ICAO, to provide tailored support in the implementation of CORSIA to ECAC Member States not belonging to the European Union, nor Iceland or Norway.
