Definition

safety programme based on the following principle: "in each ECAC member State, aircraft arriving from another country, including other ECAC member countries, are subject to ramp inspections chiefly concerned with the aircraft's documents and crew, the apparent condition of the aircraft and the carriage of mandatory cabin equipment. The ramp inspections are intended to identify non-compliance with ICAO requirements set out in the annexes to the Chicago Convention, specifically the provisions concerned with personnel licensing (Annex 1), the operation of aircraft (Annex 6) and airworthiness of aircraft (Annex 8)."
