EUROCONTROL Guidelines for Aeronautical Information Publication (AIP) distribution on the Internet

16 November 2017

This first edition of the EUROCONTROL Guidelines for Aeronautical Information Publication (AIP) distribution on the Internet has been designed by the EUROCONTROL’s AIM/SWIM Team to support the requirements of Data Services Providers (DAT) and assist the Aeronautical Information Services Providers (AISP) in developing and adapting their systems for the distribution of the State AIP on the Internet as an official and authoritative source of information.

These guidelines should be used by the AISP when planning or assessing AIP distribution on the Internet in order to ensure that it is provided as an official/authoritative source of aeronautical information. The document provides a series of options for implementation of processes in AIS systems as well as ways of mitigating the risks associated with certain identified threats. These guidelines are not meant to all be mandatory and each AISP will select the options best suited to its needs or define its own.

The document also provides practical examples of application to specific AISPs as best practice material.
