Min Patterson assures legislation ICAO-compliant, progressive
THE Civil Aviation Bill 2017 which repeals and replaces the Civil Aviation Act, Chapter 53:01 and brings Guyana’s aviation law up to international standards was passed in the National Assembly Monday evening.
The bill also makes provisions for enablement of the Chicago Convention and the Agreement establishing the Caribbean Aviation Safety and Security Oversight System. It provides for offences pertaining to the safety and security of passengers, aircraft and airports and for the regulation and control of orderly development in the sector.
The bill was with the Special Select Committee for over one year and benefited from wide consultations and scrutiny, Public Infrastructure Minister, David Patterson said in reporting to the full House the work of the committee.
