Re: Pakistan CAA to be Divided into Three Divisions - Regulatory, Airport & Operations, and Support

Post by Abbas Ali »

Pakistan Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has been divided into following three divisions:

  • Regulatory
  • Airports & Operations
  • Support


Pakistan Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) in its 184th meeting held on September 30, 2020, approved functional separation of Pakistan Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) whereupon functions of the authority have been separated with respect to its role as Regulator and Service Provider. Accordingly, the authority has now been transformed into three divisions namely Regulatory, Airports & Operations and Support functions. The objective of the functional separation of the authority is to ensure micro level management with intense focus on each function in pursuance of vision and mission of the authority while special emphasis is made on enhancing the regulatory control and making it more robust for safe and secure civil aviation affairs in the country.

The implementation of the revised organizational structure will start immediately. Placement of officers on vacant positions as per approved structure shall be carried out accordingly.

Could somebody please clarify what exactly were the ICAO requirements for PCAA? Ghulam Sarwar mentioned that segregation of CAA is being done in accordance with ICAO requirements. I'm not sure if that really is an ICAO 'requirement'. If it is, someone kindly explain.

The requirement of ICAO is in terms of separation of the Service provision and Oversight/regulatory. They maintain that a single organisation cannot be impartial when providing regulatory oversight on its own services.
Make the 100% correct decision 100% of the time.
