In accordance with ICAO Annex 19:

"States shall establish and maintain an SSP that is commensurate with the size and complexity of the State’s civil aviation system, ....".

QualaTech offer's States guidance in addressing the USOAP CMA PQs related to the SSP and the SSP Gap Analysis (GA). For example, the ICAO NACC Office has expressed concern that certain States' USOAP EI's may have been compromised as a result of an ineffective SSP GA, and that certain States require further guidance and assistance to accurately interpret the GA questions and subsequently complete the process.

Our Consultants are highly capable of designing customized Action Plans based on a State's GA and other data.
