The East African Community is a Regional Economic Community comprising of five Partner States of Burundi, Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania and Uganda. Under the ICAO regional grouping the East African Community is part of the ICAO AFI region. AFI comprises of African and Indian Ocean Flight Information Region (FIR).
One of the major achievements of CASSOA since its inception has been the harmonisation of regulations and development of guidance materials which have been promulgated in the Partner States. The accession of Rwanda and Burundi to the EAC however, means that their aviation legislations and regulations must be harmonised to the other States. This is an ongoing process in which the Agency is actively involved.
