The Minister of Investments and Development (MID) of the Republic of Kazakhstan, Asset Issekeshev has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with CAA International (CAAi), the State-to-State advisory arm of the UK Civil Aviation Authority (UK CAA).
Witnessed by British Prime Minister, David Cameron and Nursultan Nazarbayev, President of Kazakhstan, the MoU supports future collaboration between the UK and Kazakhstan to strengthen the safety oversight of Kazakhstan’s Aviation Regulator, the Civil Aviation Committee (CAC).
Under the MoU, CAAi has agreed to provide UK CAA expertise and guidance, to help raise the level of effective implementation of ICAO Standards and Recommended Practices (SARPs). CAAi will support the development of a CAC transformation plan that will include the separation of commercial services from regulatory provisions and oversight. CAAi will also support Kazakhstan in aligning its aviation safety regulations to European requirements and provide assistance to achieve ECAC membership and FAA Cat 1 status.
Maria Rueda, CAAi Managing Director, said, “We are pleased to sign this MoU with Kazakhstan. It demonstrates both countries’ commitment to promoting higher standards of aviation safety and we are committed to supporting Kazakhstan in achieving these goals”.
