Aviation Policy Group (APG)

What is the Aviation Policy Group?

The Aviation Policy Group's (APG) role is to enhance cooperation and coordination across the four Commonwealth Government agencies responsible for aviation policy, regulation and service provision.

The APG agencies include the Department of Infrastructure, Regional Development and Cities (the department), the Department of Defence, the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) and Airservices Australia (Airservices) who all have significant complementary yet differing roles in policy development, regulation or service delivery in our airspace and air traffic management system.

All APG agencies are committed to the outcome of safe and efficient airspace and air traffic management.

Why is there an Annual Summary?

The APG is required to report annually to the Minister for Infrastructure and Transport on performance against the key objectives, initiatives and milestones outlined in the State Safety Programme.

At the 30 June 2016 APG meeting it was proposed that the department would perform this function, and prepare the Annual Summary for approval at the next APG meeting.
