In a first-ever partnership, the International Coordinating Council of Aerospace Industries (ICCAIA), Society of Japan Aerospace Companies (SJAC), Malaysia Aerospace Industry Association (MAIA) and AAIS jointly held a webinar on 20 April 2021 to brief aviation and aerospace organisations in the Asian region on the Council Aviation Recovery Taskforce (CART) Phase III recommendations.

Speaking at the briefing, Permanent Representatives of ICCAIA to the International Civil Aviation Organisation  (ICAO), Dan Carnelly and Mitch Fox explained how ICCAIA worked with its member organisations to represent aerospace manufacturers and MROs, providing technical expertise to support the work of ICAO. To perform its role, ICCAIA had four main technical committees reflecting the main workstreams of ICAO: Airworthiness Committee, CNS/ATM Committee, Aircraft Noise and Emissions Committee (ANEC) and Security Committee. Member associations were welcome to participate and contribute expertise.

On CART III, the major focus had been on standardization of COVID testing certificates, to facilitate international air travel. ICCAIA had made significant contributions to this effort, leading the writing of the ‘Aircraft Guidelines’ module, contributing towards the ‘Take-off Guidance Document’ & revisions, working closely with IATA on guidelines to restart aviation, and leading the drafting of the original ‘Testing and Cross-border Risk Mitigation Management Manual’.
