1 ICAO Universal Safety Oversight Audit Programme SUMMARY REPORT ON THE SAFETY OVERSIGHT AUDIT FOLLOW-UP OF THE DIRECTORATE GENERAL OF CIVIL AVIATION AND METEOROLOGY OF BURKINA FASO (Ouagadougou, 18 to 23 June 2003) International Civil Aviation Organization

2 ICAO UNIVERSAL SAFETY OVERSIGHT AUDIT PROGRAMME Summary Report on the Safety Oversight Audit Follow-up of the Directorate General of Civil Aviation and Meteorology of Burkina Faso (Ouagadougou, 18 to 23 June 2003) 1. INTRODUCTION 1.1 Background The Directorate General of Civil Aviation and Meteorology (DGACM) of Burkina Faso, formerly the Directorate of Civil Aviation (DAC), was audited from 11 to 15 October 1999 by an ICAO safety oversight audit team in accordance with the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) agreed to on 23 June 1999 between Burkina Faso and ICAO. The audit was carried out pursuant to Assembly Resolution A32-11, with the objective of ascertaining the safety oversight capability of the DAC (now DGACM) of Burkina Faso and to ensure that it was in conformity with ICAO Standards and Recommended Practices (SARPs), as contained in Annexes 1, 6 and 8 to the Convention on International Civil Aviation (Chicago Convention) and related provisions in other Annexes, guidance material and relevant safety-related practices in general use in the aviation industry On 5 January 2000, Burkina Faso submitted a corrective action plan addressing the findings and recommendations contained in the audit interim report. The action plan submitted was reviewed by the Safety Oversight Audit (SOA) Section and was found to be satisfactory. The action plan was taken into consideration in the preparation of the final and summary reports. The summary report was distributed to all Contracting States by State letter AN 19/1-00/52 in May Objectives and activities of the audit follow-up mission The audit follow-up mission was conducted in accordance with Article 18 of the MOU and the ICAO Safety Oversight Audit Manual (Doc 9735). The objective of this mission was to validate the implementation of the corrective action plan and to ascertain the status of the progress made, which enables ICAO to update the information contained in the audit findings and differences database (AFDD) and also to inform other Contracting States on the status of the safety oversight system of Burkina Faso through a non-confidential summary report. It is important to appreciate in this respect that audit follow-up missions are not audits and are not designed to evaluate all aspects of a State s aviation framework or safety oversight system. 2. CIVIL AVIATION ACTIVITIES IN BURKINA FASO At the time of the audit follow-up mission, civil aviation activities in Burkina Faso included: a) number of technical staff employed by the organization at Headquarters 2 b) number of regional offices 0

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY 3.1 In the field of primary aviation legislation and civil aviation regulations, Burkina Faso has made significant progress in the implementation of the action plan resulting from the safety oversight audit carried out by ICAO in October The civil aviation administration has been reorganized into a Directorate General of Civil Aviation and Meteorology (DGACM). Its goal and responsibilities are set in a decree and an order, respectively, which stipulate that the DGACM regulates, plans and controls the implementation of the aeronautical and meteorological policy of Burkina Faso and sets its field of expertise as well as its structure comprising a Directorate of Civil Aviation (DAC), a Directorate of Meteorology (DM), a Directorate of Infrastructures and Equipment (DIE) and a Directorate of Safety and Security (DSS). The DGACM has also established regulations at different levels, often through orders of the Minister in charge of civil aviation or through circulars, instructions or decisions of the Director General in urgent cases. The

4 - 3 - new texts adopted provide for a major part of the safety oversight-related processes. However, this mechanism remains incomplete as Burkina Faso is part of two regional groups, the West African Economic and Monetary Union (WAEMU) and the African and Malagasy Civil Aviation Authorities (AAMAC), which have also embarked in the preparation of texts related to safety oversight, whose adoption may determine the regulatory framework of Burkina Faso. The DGACM has adopted national texts without waiting for all community texts. However, the completion of the implementation of the international standards of the mechanism regulating civil aviation in Burkina Faso still depends on the speedy adoption of community texts which conform to ICAO provisions. 3.2 The aviation administration has been reorganized in a DGACM which consists of four main directorates, including the DAC and the DSS. The DGACM has created an inspector workforce responsible for the control of air transport operators, airworthiness of aircraft and aeronautical personnel, thus four inspectors have been designated. However, the DGACM does not have sufficient technical staff and has not yet been able to recruit additional experts to reinforce the technical manpower responsible for safety oversight. It does not have the financial resources nor the decision-making autonomy for such recruitment and for accomplishing the scheduled training plan. Moreoever, in the new organization, the duties and technical tasks related to the issuance of personnel licences are still confined within the Air Transport Department, and the safety oversight functions and role of the DAC need to be clarified. 3.3 Order No /PL/TP/T date 24 October 1970 contains the main provisions regulating the issuance of personnel licences and ratings in Burkina Faso and has not yet been revised. The management of licences is carried out through good practices and the DGACM has developed print-outs which contain information required for the issuance, renewal, validation or conversion of licences. However, it has not developed procedures for the validation/conversion of licences, and the authenticity check of the original licence and related skills is not routinely carried out. In addition, no criteria were developed for the designation of examiners, nor a system for the supervision of practical tests, nor an examiner s handbook to ensure consistency of examinations and reliability of tests being carried out. Although provided in the regulatory texts in force, the certification of medical examiners is not governed by a system which includes certification and designation procedures of those doctors and a supervision and control system of their performance. 3.4 Burkina Faso has undertaken conclusive actions in the field of aircraft operations. The DGACM has developed a system for the certification and supervision of air transport operators including relevant regulations, for example a WAEMU instruction which requires an approval and an air operator certificate and orders which state the requirements applying to the operation of aircraft. The DGACM has developed a booklet providing information and procedures on the certification and continuing supervision of air transport operators as well as documents and manuals which the operator will have to prepare and submit to the DGACM. The booklet contents and the certification process and steps are taken from ICAO Doc 8335 and meet its contents. However, the DGACM does not recruit sufficient aircraft operations and airworthiness inspectors to carry out all the required tasks. 3.5 The DGACM has made significant progress in the field of airworthiness of aircraft since the ICAO safety oversight audit. Regulations on the issuance of certificates of airworthiness, the approval/certification of maintenance organizations and the certification and supervision of operators in the maintenance field have been adopted, and most of the related procedures have been developed. However, some standards are still not in conformance with those of ICAO (contents of the maintenance procedures

5 - 4 - manual) and certain procedures have yet to be developed (approval/acceptance of maintenance organizations from other States, specialized maintenance activities, etc.). The DGACM has also developed a system for supervising and controlling the performance of duties delegated to the Bureau Véritas agency, and the issuance and renewal of certificates of airworthiness is done jointly with the Bureau Véritas expert. However, the engineer responsible for airworthiness within the DGACM is the only staff member to fulfil all those duties and is not provided with all equipment, reference system and useful technical publications of manufacturers of aircraft registered in Burkina Faso, for example flight manuals, master minimum equipment lists, maintenance programmes for aging aircraft. 4. RESULTS OF THE AUDIT FOLLOW-UP MISSION 4.1 Primary aviation legislation and civil aviation regulations a) Action proposed by State. With respect to the need to amend the Civil Aviation Code, Burkina Faso proposed to amend it so that it reflected the State s obligations under the Chicago Convention and ensured that the provisions of the different articles of the Convention and its Annexes would be implemented by 31 December b) Validation of action proposed. Efforts were undertaken by the Government of Burkina Faso for the implementation of ICAO provisions on the issues addressed during the ICAO audit carried out in October As a result, the Directorate General of Civil Aviation and Meteorology (DGACM) was created in replacement of the DAC. Its goal and responsibilities are respectively set in Decree No /PRES/PM/MITH of 7 October 2002 and in Order No. 019/MITH/SG/DGACM of 2 April Article 45 of this decree sets its field of expertise and stipulates that the DGACM regulates, plans and controls the implementation of the aeronautical and meteorological policy of Burkina Faso. Article 46 sets the organization in four main directorates: a Directorate of Civil Aviation (DAC), a Directorate of Meteorology (DM), a Directorate of Infrastructures and Equipment (DIE) and a Directorate of Safety and Security (DSS). The DGACM has also established since its inception regulations at different levels, often through orders of the Minister in charge of civil aviation or through circulars, instructions or decisions of the Director General in urgent cases. However, the civil aviation regulatory mechanism of Burkina Faso remains incomplete as it is still awaiting the adoption of community texts within the two regional groups which Burkina Faso is part of, the WAEMU and the AAMAC. These two groups have initiated studies in order to prepare safety oversight-related texts but have not set implementation target dates, taking into account the constraints of action plans prepared by the Member States. In addition, the revision of the Civil Aviation Code, expected around the end of 2003, has not yet been finalized, and the provisions on the transfer and acceptance of duties and tasks under the terms of the standard agreements of Article 83 bis of the Chicago Convention have not been introduced yet. The ICAO recommendation remains open.

6 a) Action proposed by State. Concerning the development of a regulation on the operation of aircraft, the DAC indicated in its action plan that the preparation of a draft order which would be revised in order to incorporate the recommendations made during the audit. In addition, the DAC indicated that it would consider holding consultation meetings with aircraft operators around March 2000 with a view to submitting the draft for approval as from June b) Validation of action proposed. As planned, Burkina Faso has adopted in its corrective action plan provisions applicable to the operation of aircraft. Order No /MTT/SG/DGACM of 21 September 2001 which sets these provisions is based on the guidance of Annex 6 to the Chicago Convention, Part I (aeroplanes) and reproduces its contents. However, this order needs to be updated in order to incorporate the recent amendments to Annex 6 as well as the provisions of Annex 6, Parts II and III, not yet implemented. The ICAO recommendation remains open a) Action proposed by State. With regard to the limitations applying to flight time and flight and cabin crew duty periods, the DAC has proposed to develop draft texts which were to be submitted for approval by March b) Validation of action proposed. An order was adopted to set the flight time limitations for flight and cabin crew. However, this order does not specify the duty time limitations. The ICAO recommendation remains open a) Action proposed by State. With respect to airworthiness regulations, Burkina Faso indicated that in June 1999 the DAC initiated a draft text concerning the airworthiness of aircraft. The DAC has proposed to develop the draft text to cover the provisions of Annex 6, Chapters 8 and 11, and those of Doc 9389, by 31 December Those documents were to be submitted for signature by the Director of Civil Aviation by January b) Validation of action proposed. Burkina Faso has established a comprehensive regulation relating to the airworthiness of aircraft, the issuance and renewal of certificates of airworthiness and the obtaining of flight permits. The DGACM has not yet developed exhaustive procedures for the issuance of flight permits, for the approval of minimum equipment lists and for ensuring that the operator uses qualified personnel to verify that the maintenance of aircraft is performed according to the provisions of the maintenance control manual. The contents of the manual is in conformance with the ICAO provisions but its acceptance/approval is not mentioned. The ICAO recommendation remains open. 4.2 Organization of civil aviation a) Action proposed by State. With regard to the technical staff of the sections dealing with air safety, the DAC indicated that in January 2000 a proposal would be submitted to the Ministry of Transport and Tourism concerning the possibility of recruiting technical personnel. That proposal would also take account of the material

7 - 6 - resources requirements for probable acquisition in February As to job descriptions, the DAC indicated that draft job descriptions had already been submitted to the Ministry of Transport and Tourism in September1999. b) Validation of action proposed. The DGACM has not yet been able to recruit additional experts to reinforce the technical manpower responsible for safety oversight and does not have the financial resources nor the decision-making autonomy for such recruitment. Although the order on the DGACM s duties sets the responsibilities and tasks of the bodies in charge of the operation of aircraft and the airworthiness of aircraft, to date only one engineer fulfils all the tasks and related duties. The experience and minimum qualifications for the designation of operations and airworthiness inspectors as well as the description of technical posts have not yet been developed. The ICAO recommendation remains open a) Action proposed by State. With respect to the establishment of a recruitment policy, the DAC indicated in its action plan that it would pursue talks with donor agencies to seek approval of financing for staff training. Subject to the results of the talks and the guidelines to be given by the Government, the DAC expected to implement a technical personnel recruitment and training policy. b) Validation of action proposed. The DGACM has not yet drafted a technical staff recruitment policy, is still facing a lack of technical expertise and does not have sufficient staff needed to carry out safety oversight-related tasks. A training plan was developed by the DGACM to reinforce the technical qualifications of its management staff but was not implemented on account of the low financial resources. The ICAO recommendation remains open a) Action proposed by State. Concerning the lack of working procedures, the DAC indicated in its action plan that the existing working procedures would be progressively increased and validated by the Director of Civil Aviation during the year However, the DAC was expected to inventory and develop the missing working procedures, in order to carry out technical duties, and validate them. b) Validation of action proposed. The DGACM has recently introduced a policy on the development of procedures based on ICAO Docs 8335, 9379 and Many procedures and checklists have been developed concerning the processes relating to the certification and supervision of operators, the issuance and renewal of certificates of airworthiness and the approval of maintenance organizations. Well-controlled good practices assure the management of the personnel licensing processes. However, the DGACM has not yet completed the development of procedures and checklists relating to the processes as a whole and has not started to group the ones established in the procedures manual to be used as a reference for carrying out the different tasks. The ICAO recommendation remains open a) Action proposed by State. With regard to the duties and delegation of authority to inspectors directly involved in safety oversight, the DAC indicated in its corrective

8 - 7 - action plan that pertinent regulations relating to the organization and functioning of the inspector corps would be prepared and submitted for approval by January b) Validation of action proposed. The DGACM has created an inspector workforce responsible for the control of air transport operators, airworthiness of aircraft and aeronautical personnel, thus four inspectors have been designated. However, the Civil Aviation Code of Burkina Faso has not yet been amended in order to incorporate the provisions specifying the authority delegated to inspectors. Moreover, the DGACM does not have a sufficient number of inspectors to carry out all the required tasks. The ICAO recommendation remains open a) Action proposed by State. Concerning the need to group the bodies which deal with air safety and safety oversight within the same body, the DAC indicated in its corrective action plan that the collaboration between the two units would be reinforced for more efficient processing and follow-up of safety oversight issues. The DAC also indicated that it would propose a project for the creation of a sole entity recommended under the global reorganization of the DAC foreseen by the Government in January b) Validation of action proposed. The aviation administration has recently been organized in a DGACM which consists of four main directorates, including the DAC and the DSS. However, the DSS provided for in the texts has not yet been established and the duties and technical tasks related to the issuance of personnel licences are still confined within the Air Transport Department. The safety oversight functions and role of the DAC need to be clarified since they are the responsibility of the DGACM and the ones of the DAC come under the air transport and regulation field. The ICAO recommendation remains open. 4.3 Personnel licensing and training a) Action proposed by State. Concerning the notification of differences between the national regulation and the provisions of ICAO Annex 1, the DAC indicated in its corrective action plan that it would inventory the existing differences and publish them in the aeronautical information publication (AIP) on 30 June 2000 at the latest and would notify ICAO of published differences before 31 December b) Validation of action proposed. Burkina Faso has not yet notified any differences between its regulatory provisions and Annex 1 to the Chicago Convention. Order No /PL/TP/T dated 24 October 1970 remains the main provision regulating the issuance of personnel licences and ratings in Burkina Faso and has not yet been amended although a draft revision, to be adopted soon, was prepared by the DGACM. The ICAO recommendation remains open a) Action proposed by State. Concerning the amendment to the order dealing with the issuance of personnel licences to ensure conformance with Annex 1 provisions, the DAC indicated in its corrective action plan that amendments to this order were

9 - 8 - expected to be implemented before February 2000 as well as the revision of the Civil Aviation Code with a view to eliminating the Class 1 professional pilot licence (PP1). The DAC also indicated the development, by June 2000, of a complete procedure on the issuance of personnel licences. b) Validation of action proposed. Personnel licensing and training is governed by Order No /PL/TP/T dated 24 October 1970 which has not yet been amended and a draft order is being finalized. However, although Articles 1, 2 and 3 of this order provide for the establishment by the DGACM of a framework to carry out examinations for the issuance of licences and ratings, such framework was not established. The DGACM has not yet developed criteria for the designation of examiners, nor a system for the supervision of practical tests, nor an examiner s handbook to ensure consistency of examinations and reliability of tests being carried out. Article 5 of this order provides for the possibility of issuing licences on an equivalency basis to some military personnel ; however, no system exists to ensure beforehand of the equivalence of theoretical knowledge between licences and certificates held by the applicant and the ones required, as well as of experience and flight skills. The DGACM has also developed print-outs which contain information required for the issuance, renewal, validation or conversion of licences but has not yet developed procedures for the validation and conversion of licences. In addition, the authenticity check of the original licence and related skills is not routinely carried out. The ICAO recommendation remains open a) Action proposed by State. Concerning the designation of medical examiners, the DAC indicated in its action plan it would develop a regulation for designating and approving aviation doctors with a view to publishing it by October As to immediate measures, the DAC proposed to publish a list of doctors and medical examination centres authorized to issue and validate aviation personnel medical examinations. b) Validation of action proposed. The DGACM continues to apply the provisions of Order No /PL/TP/T dated 24 October 1970 concerning aviation medicine. For example, Article 10 states that medical examinations must be performed by a doctor certified by the Minister of Civil Aviation; Article 11 provides for the possibility of a special examination in the case of a licence holder who is unable to contact a certified doctor; and Article 12 requires a preliminary declaration from the holder and provides for penalties in cases of false declaration. Thus medical examiners were certified by the DGACM after an assessment performed by the PEL officer within the DGACM. However, although provided in the regulatory texts in force, the certification of medical examiners is not governed by a system which includes certification and designation procedures of those doctors and a supervision and control system of their performance. The DGACM has prepared and submitted for signature by the Minister of Civil Aviation a draft order dealing with designation criteria for medical examiners, and the order is presently at the adoption stage. The ICAO recommendation remains open.

10 Aircraft operations certification and supervision a) Action proposed by State. Concerning the notification of differences between the Burkina Faso provisions on the operation of aircraft and ICAO SARPs, the DAC indicated in its action plan that after the planned adoption of new regulations, identified differences would be notified to ICAO and published in the AIP before December b) Validation of action proposed. The DGACM has notified to ICAO the differences existing between the provisions of Annex 6, Part I and Order No /MTT/SG/DGACM of 27 September 2001 on the operation of aircraft. However, this order has not been revised to take into account the recent amendments to Annex 6, and differences which were notified do not reflect the current differences. Moreover, the provisions of Annex 6, Parts II and III, have not yet been adopted. The ICAO recommendation remains open a) Action proposed by State. With respect to the availability of an operations inspector qualified on aircraft used by the Burkina Faso operators, the DAC indicated in its corrective action plan that it would try to find an arrangement with the local operators to obtain the services of an inspector qualified to carry out operations checks on his own, before March In addition, the DAC was expecting to recruit and train an inspector for those checks, as part of the implementation plan for reinforcing its manpower. b) Validation of action proposed. ICAO provisions on flight checks and competency checks of the crew are still not implemented by Burkina Faso. The DGACM still does not have a flight inspector with qualifications pertaining to aircraft used by the air operators of Burkina Faso and has not established ab initio and recurrent training requirements for this category of personnel. To implement a delegation system of flight checks to operators, the DGACM has taken steps to designate check pilots within each air transport company in order to perform periodical flight checks and flight simulator checks for flight crew maintenance of competency and has defined the minimum criteria for such a designation. However, operators have not yet followed up on this process, and this system s supervision procedures have not yet been developed. The ICAO recommendation remains open a) Action proposed by State. With regard to the designation of the operator s inspectors, in charge of carrying out the flight crew competency checks, the DAC proposed that a text be developed before December 2000 concerning the criteria for designating and supervising those inspectors. b) Validation of action proposed. The DGACM has not yet formally designated examiners within air transport companies to carry out periodical flight checks and flight simulator checks for flight crew maintenance of competency and is trying to implement a delegation system of these flight checks to operators. The DGACM has defined the minimum criteria for such a designation and requested the Burkina Faso

11 operators to submit a list of check pilots who would satisfy those criteria. However, the operators have not yet followed up on this process, and the procedures for the supervision of this system by the DGACM have not yet been developed. The ICAO recommendation remains open a) Action proposed by State. On the subject of establishing a system for certifying AOC applicants, the DAC indicated that the draft order concerning the issuance of an AOC was being prepared at the DAC level with a view to publishing it by the appropriate Minister before July The DAC also indicated that pending the signature of this order, a guidance document containing information on the AOC issuance had been developed for applicants. b) Validation of action proposed. The DGACM has developed a system for the certification of air transport operators including appropriate regulations and the development of certification processes; however, these processes have yet to be formalized. An instruction of the WAEMU provides for the requirement of an approval and an AOC, and Order No /MTT/SG/DGACM of 27 September 2001 indicates the requirements relating to the operation of aircraft used in public transport. An information booklet has been developed by the DGACM to inform applicants for an AOC and contains information and explanations concerning the certification process as well as documents and manuals which the operator will have to prepare. The DGACM has also developed a circular on extended range operations by twin-engined aeroplanes (ETOPS), including a circular that lists the manuals which an operator must provide to the DGACM. An operations inspector, who has taken many training courses and ICAO seminars on the operation of aircraft, is responsible for carrying out all certification duties relating to the operation and the airworthiness of aircraft. However, besides that inspector, the DGACM has not recruited other personnel familiar with duties related to the operation of aircraft, for example issues pertaining to the performance of aircraft, the approval of crew training programmes and the evaluation and acceptance of operations procedures. The ICAO recommendation remains open a) Action proposed by State. Concerning the establishment of a system for supervising AOC holders, the DAC proposed to develop such a system before December b) Validation of action proposed. Burkina Faso has developed a system for the supervision of AOC holders. The Civil Aviation Code and the enforcement texts indicate that air transport operators are under the DGACM technical control, and an inspections programme has been implemented by the DGACM. However, the DGACM does not have all the qualifications required for specific tasks concerning the approval and control of the good enforcement of operations procedures, flight and cabin crew training, and the transportation of dangerous goods by air. Flight checks are not adequately supervised, and the lack of inspectors prevents from conducting all required tasks. The ICAO recommendation remains open.

12 Airworthiness of aircraft a) Action proposed by State. Concerning the harmonization of the regulations of Burkina Faso with the ICAO provisions in the field of airworthiness of aircraft as well as the notification of the existing differences to ICAO, the DAC indicated in its corrective action plan that it had initiated a draft regulation which would be submitted to Bureau Véritas, responsible for monitoring the airworthiness of aircraft under the convention binding it to Burkina Faso, for review and finalization and would be submitted to the relevant authority for adoption of an order before the end of December b) Validation of action proposed. The DGACM has developed regulations on airworthiness and maintenance of aircraft in order to implement the provisions of Annex 8 to the Chicago Convention and Annex 6, Chapters 8 and 11. However, these regulations do not encompass all airworthiness aspects, and the differences to the SARP have not been identified or notified to ICAO. The ICAO recommendation remains open a) Action proposed by State. With respect to the revision of the convention between the agency Bureau Véritas and Burkina Faso in order to include a revised list of delegated tasks, the DAC indicated in its action plan that the revision of this convention would be finalized before 31 December b) Validation of action proposed. The approval between Burkina Faso and the agency Bureau Véritas delegating to the latter the supervision of some activities related to the airworthiness of aircraft is being revised. A draft memorandum of understanding has been submitted to the DGACM by Bureau Véritas for approval and in the meantime, the DGACM has adapted the duties currently performed by the Bureau Véritas expert to the specifications in force. This expert performs henceforth only the duties related to the issuance and maintaining of certificates of airworthiness. However, the development of procedures for the approval of repairs and major modifications has not yet been completed by the DGACM. The ICAO recommendation remains open a) Action proposed by State. With regard to the establishment of a system for supervising and evaluating the work done on its behalf by Bureau Véritas, the DAC proposed to implement a system for the supervision and periodic evaluations of the work done by Bureau Véritas, before June 2001, and to ensure that, from January 2000, the assignments entrusted to Bureau Véritas under the convention would be strictly met. b) Validation of action proposed. The DGACM has developed a system for supervising and controlling the performance of duties delegated to the Bureau Véritas agency. The issuance and renewal of certificates of airworthiness is done jointly by Bureau Véritas and the DGACM, following procedures and

13 checklists approved by the DGACM, and copies of documents used are kept by the DGACM in the aircraft file. The ICAO recommendation has been complied with a) Action proposed by State. As to the lack of equipment and technical publications, the DAC proposed to require that aircraft operators send it all pertinent documents by June In addition, the DAC was planning to subscribe to agencies specializing in the distribution of airworthiness directives (ADs) and manufacturer service bulletins, from March b) Validation of action proposed. The engineer responsible for airworthiness within the DGACM has access to the ICAO documentation and to some documents from aircraft design organizations. However, although a computer was provided to him during the audit follow-up mission and an Internet connection is being prepared to give him access also to relevant aircraft manufacturers and other States sites, the DGACM does not have sufficient resources to subscribe to and obtain technical publications useful for the regular monitoring of aircraft registered and/or used in Burkina Faso, for example flight manuals, master minimum equipment lists, maintenance programmes for aging aircraft, etc. The ICAO recommendation remains open a) Action proposed by State. Concerning the requirements for the establishment of a mass-weighing form for aircraft registered in Burkina Faso, the DAC indicated in its action plan that it would prepare regulatory provisions and would have them adopted before January b) Validation of action proposed. When renewing a certificate of airworthiness, an aircraft owner is required to provide a mass-weighing form, as per Order No /MTT/SG/DGACM of 27 September However, there is no regulation specifying the mass-weighing frequency or criteria and procedures to check it. The ICAO recommendation remains open a) Action proposed by State. With respect to the development of regulations and procedures for the approval of aircraft maintenance organizations, the DAC indicated in its corrective action plan that those regulations and procedures were being finalized and would be submitted to the appropriate authority for approval and publication by regulatory channel before March b) Validation of action proposed. The Minister of Transport and Tourism has implemented a regulation and a minimum of procedures for the approval/certification of maintenance organizations. However, some standards are not in conformance with those of ICAO (contents of the maintenance procedures manual) and certain procedures must be developed (approval/acceptance of maintenance organizations from other States, specialized maintenance activities, etc.). The programme, procedure and frequency of inspections have yet to be developed. The ICAO recommendation remains open.

14 a) Action proposed by State. Concerning the development of regulations and a mandatory reporting system under which information on faults, defects and malfunctions is transmitted to the DAC, the latter proposed that regulations on the subject be developed in February b) Validation of action proposed. The DGACM has not yet adopted/adapted an airworthiness code nor has it developed a regulation requiring operators of aircraft of more than kg to retrieve airworthiness information and submit it to design organizations. No system was developed for the receipt and processing of mandatory information with respect to the continuing airworthiness of aircraft, and no system exists for the transmission of faults encountered in service. The ICAO recommendation remains open. 5. UPDATE ON DEPARTURES FROM ICAO SARPs During the audit follow-up mission, an updated list on the status of implementation and differences existing between the national regulations and Annexes 6 and 8 SARPs and/or SARPs not implemented was provided to the audit follow-up team. The differences provided will be included in the relevant Annex supplement in line with Article 17 of the MOU signed between Burkina Faso and ICAO and in accordance with Article 38 of the Chicago Convention. However, an updated list on the status of implementation and differences existing between the national regulations and Annex 1 SARPs and/or SARPs not implemented was not provided to the audit follow-up team. As such, Burkina Faso is urged to conduct a thorough review of its national legislation and regulations and to notify ICAO of any differences as required under Article 38 of the Chicago Convention. 6. AUDIT FINDINGS AND DIFFERENCES DATABASE (AFDD) 6.1 The general objective of the AFDD is to assist States in identifying the elements that need attention in the implementation of the proposed corrective action plan. The information is also intended to assist States in establishing a priority of actions to be taken to resolve safety concerns identified by the audits. The appendix to this report contains a graphic representation of the lack of effective implementation of the critical elements of safety oversight (ICAO Doc 9734 refers) in Burkina Faso and at a global level. The graphic representation of the State level depicts the situation during the initial audit and the situation at the time of the audit follow-up mission. The graphic representation will enable Burkina Faso to prioritize the necessary corrective actions and to identify assistance requirements based on its personnel, technical and financial capabilities in consideration of its safety oversight obligations. 6.2 As indicated in paragraph 1.2 above, the scope of the audit follow-up mission was limited to validating the progress made in the implementation of the State s corrective action plan and did not constitute an audit as described in ICAO Doc The graphic representation of the situation in the State at the time of the audit follow-up mission, as contained in the appendix to this report, is similarly limited to reflecting the progress made in implementing the ICAO recommendations made during the initial audit and does not purport to depict a current comprehensive evaluation of all aspects of a State s safety oversight system. Considering the mandate for ICAO audit follow-up missions and the time available to conduct such

15 missions, it is possible that some safety concerns may exist in the State which are not covered in this report or reflected in the appendix.
