Zim adopts SADC aviation regulations

Zimbabwe this week adopted the Southern African Development Community Model Civil Aviation Act and the region’s regulations and procedures which aim to harmonise civil aviation legislation.

This followed a meeting of Committee of Ministers responsible for Transport and Meteorology from SADC.

The meeting took place in Centurion, Johannesburg to review progress in the implementation of the transport and meteorology programmes and projects as espoused by the SADC Protocol on Transport, Communications and Meteorology.

Ministers from Angola, Lesotho, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, Swaziland, United Republic of Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe attended the meeting while Botswana, Malawi, Mauritius and Seychelles were represented by senior officials.

“Ministers considered and adopted the SADC Model Civil Aviation Act and the SADC generic regulations and procedures for use by Member States as a basis for harmonisation of primary civil aviation legislation in SADC,” South Africa’s Department of Transport said in a statement to The Zimbabwean after the event.

Meanwhile, the ministers also launched the SADC Road Safety Awareness Campaign in support of the United Nations Decade of Action on Road Safety 2011 to 2020.

On meteorology, they noted progress made in the Meteorology Sector both in the region and internationally.
