In November 2006, the EUROCONTROL Permanent Commission decided to align its approach on the public dissemination of ESIMS audit information with that of the ICAO Universal Safety Oversight Audit Programme (IUSOAP) (CN Decision No. 108).
This allowed for the continued and better alignment of the USOAP and ESIMS Programme methodologies in a manner consistent with the principles of the ESIMS Programme agreed by the EUROCONTROL Provisional Council.
The ICAO-based approach, using a chart to depict the status of the implementation of each of the eight critical elements, was adapted by DSS/OVS in the form of an ‘Audit Results Summary Sheet’ for each audited Member State. The Summary Sheet depicts the level of compliance with the mandatory provisions related to the implementation of each ICAO critical element at the time of the audit.
As agreed by the SRC in October 2008, DSS/OVS ensured a 12 month period between the on-site audit and the publication of audit results. In addition, to make the information more up-to-date and to show the progress made by States since the audit, DSS/OVS used the updated Corrective Action Plans submitted by States to prepare a graph depicting the level of implementation at the time of the audit against the level of implementation as reported by the State. This method allowed a fair and transparent presentation of the audit results and progress made.
