European Action Plan for the Prevention of Runway Incursions (EAPPRI V3.0)

20 November 2017

The runway incursion problem remains a significant safety issue. In a continuing effort to combat this phenomenon, EUROCONTROL's Network Manager is issuing it's third version of the European Action Plan for the Prevention of Runway Incursions (EAPPRI). This version recognises the emergence of EU provisions intended to improve runway safety in Europe, while continuing to recognise the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) Standards and Recommended Practices (SARPS), making it suitable for universal application. 

EAPPRI v3.0 contains modifications to some existing recommendations, challenging the aviation industry to review the effectiveness of systemic runway incursion risk reduction activities associated with Safety Management Systems (SMS) and aerodrome local Runway Safety Teams. The updated Plan also contains a number of new recommendations affecting all the stakeholders with a vested interest to further invigorate improvements in runway safety.
