The Irish Aviation Authority promotes and regulates the safety of aviation in Ireland. The IAA is committed to developing and implementing effective strategies, regulatory frameworks and processes to ensure that aviation activities under our oversight achieve the highest practicable level of safety.

Conscious of the ultra-safe nature of the International Aviation System and of the sustained efforts of all stakeholders to maintain this high level of safety, the IAA embraces the philosophy and policy of the International Civil Aviation Organisation, (ICAO) and the European Aviation Safety Agency, (EASA).

Reflecting these international standards and recommended practices the IAA will ensure the highest level of safety in the Irish aviation system. The IAA Safety Regulation Division (SRD) will aim to improve safety by adopting a data-driven and performance based approach to safety regulation and safety oversight activities, where appropriate, and, by identifying safety trends and adopting a risk-based approach to address areas of greater concern.
