  INTERNATIONAL CIVIL AVIATION ORGANIZATION. The Columbia Encyclopedia: Sixth Edition. 2000   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-12)
The objective of the ICAO, which in 1997 had 185 member nations, is to encourage the orderly growth of international civil aviation, establishing uniform standards for aircraft markings, airworthiness, and licensing of pilots.
The ICAO is governed by a board elected by its members (civil airport authorities), which meets annually.
A directorate general implements board policies and may act as arbiter between states in disputes in the interpretation of the Chicago Convention on International Civil Aviation of 1944 (see air, law of the).

 Aviation and the Global Atmosphere
Because of the international nature of aviation and the need to promote international standards of safety, regulation of air transport is harmonized on a worldwide basis as much as possible through ICAO, a UN specialized agency established in 1944 under the Convention on International Civil Aviation (the “Chicago Convention”) (ICAO, 1997a).
The IPCC guidelines require international aviation emissions to be estimated by the country where the fuel is sold, although such emissions are not to be included in that country’s total emissions.
At the ICAO assembly in September/October 1998, the ICAO Council was asked to study policy options to limit or reduce greenhouse gas emissions from civil aviation—taking into account the findings of this IPCC Special Report and the requirements of the Kyoto Protocol—and to report to the Assembly at its next ordinary session in 2001.

ICAO is the world body which ensures safety standardization on the global level (its member countries number 185, virtually all the countries of the world.) ICAO has adopted international standards and recommended practices which specify the design and performance of aircraft and much of their equipment.
The results of these audits are given to the respective civil aviation authorities and include specific recommendations and proposals for improvement of operations to ensure the highest level of safety standardization.
Despite the inconvenience which safety measures prescribed by ICAO at airports may cause to travelers, they are indispensable precautions to ensure that no terrorist boards airliners.

this channel will be accessible to all civil aviation users and will provi- de position information with an accuracy of up to 60 metres in the ho- rizontal plane (with a probability of 0.997) and up to 75 metres in the vertical plane (with a probability of 0.997).
The provision of the GLONASS system to the world aviation commu- nity is not intended in any way to limit the right of any State to control aircraft operations and enforce flight safety regulations in its sovereign airspace.
Since ICAO is to act as the international co-ordinating body for the global implementation of the future air navigation sysrem, we are prepared to conclude an agreement with ICAO for the use of the GLONASS system by the world aviation community as an element of the GNSS with the above-mentioned characteristics.

More than 110 sovereign states participate in the activities of the International Civil Aviation Organization—a specialized agency of the United Nations—which is concerned with the safe, orderly, and efficient development of international civil air transport.
The author observes that the creative element in the law-making process of an international organization is its "institutional personality" which reveals itself in the day-to-day practice of the organization.
By revealing for the first time ICAO's dynamic and sophisticated law-making process, he demonstrates that long-term international cooperation for resolving modern technological problems is by no means impossible, and that international organizations with specialized technical functions can make substantial progress in regulating the conduct of governments.
