ICAO considers the implementation of risk-based security measures for several domains of Annex 17. This requirement is reflected in many national regulations. To assist its members in this new approach, ACI issued in 2020 an “airport security risk assessment handbook”.

In line with this publication, this workshop is providing practical guidance for the implementation at local level of a risk management system. It details and clarifies the methodology used by international stakeholders to assess risk and highlights key challenges for an efficient aviation security management based on risk.
