CAAS is committed to upholding a safe aviation environment and the highest standards in aviation safety, underpinned by good foundations established over the years -a strong safety regime, strong safety culture and strong safety leadership.
As part of the continual efforts to strengthen safety, CAAS has published two key safety documents – the State Safety Programme (SSP) which articulates Singapore’s regulatory philosophy, values, and commitments to achieve our safety objectives, and the National Aviation Safety Plan (NASP) 2022-2024, which identifies clear priorities and galvanises the aviation sector to work together to keep aviation safe.
CAAS also launched the first-ever Safety Charter for the Singapore aviation industry at the Aviation Safety Forum on 7 March 2022, which expresses the shared commitment by leaders in the sector to jointly uphold safety standards and strengthen safety culture in their respective organisations.

The SSP document guides our safety regulatory work in Policy & Rule Development; Approval, Licensing & Certification; Enforcement & Surveillance; and Safety Promotion. Through our SSP, we drive a more systematic and holistic approach to safety management, integrating more predictive methodologies to better manage precursor events so that they do not become safety incidents. This allows CAAS to continuously improve the way safety oversight is carried out to support the safe growth of the aviation industry in Singapore.

Complementing the SSP document, the NASP sets out Singapore’s objectives, challenges, strategic priorities and key safety actions to be taken by, or driven by CAAS. The list of safety actions cover five areas, namely operational safety, policies and rules, safety management, data and digitalisation, and regional and global aviation safety.
