State Safety Programme (SSP)

The State Safety Programme (SSP)  is a core document in the field of aviation safety, which describes the regulatory requirements and activities taken by the participating entities with the aim of maintaining and further developing aviation safety.

The Republic of Slovenia introduced the State Safety Programme in July 2016.


The SSP is established in accordance with:

  • the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) standards:
    • Global Aviation Safety Plan (GASP),
    • Annex 19: Safety Management,
    • Doc 9859: Safety Management Manual,


  • and the European Aviation Safety Agency  (EASA)  standards:
    • European Aviation Safety Programme (EASP),
    • European Plan for Aviation Safety (EPAS), Annual Safety Review.


On the basis of Article 8 of the Regulation (EU) No 2018/1139, the CAA has developed the plan for aviation safety (State Plan for Aviation Safety – SPAS) on behalf of the State as part of the State Safety Programme. The purpose of the SPAS is to provide a strategic direction to safety management at State level and to outline to all stakeholders where the Republic of Slovenia will target resources in the specific period as part of the risk and performance based approach to safety management.

At the moment, the State Plan for Aviation Safety 2019–2023 is applicable.
