The East African Community Civil Aviation Safety and Security Oversight Agency (EAC-CASSOA) was established by the EAC Council of Ministers following the signing of a Protocol by three founder Partner States on 18th April 2007. It started operations on 1st June 2007, as an autonomous self-accounting institution of the EAC.
It was thereafter formally launched on 18th June 2007 during the 5th Extraordinary Summit of EAC Heads of State held in Kampala, Uganda.
The mandate of CASSOA is based on Article 92 of the EAC Treaty, under which the Partner States undertake to make air transport services safe, efficient and profitable; adopt common policies for the development of civil air transport in the Region; harmonise Civil Aviation Laws and Regulations and coordinate measures and co-operate in the maintenance of high security.
