Safety Assessment of Foreign Aircraft (SAFA) and Safety Assessment of Community Aircraft (SACA) are the programmes of the European Union requiring each participating State to perform inspections of third country's aircraft and community aircraft.

In the framework of SAFA, the Safety list of aircraft prohibited to enter European airspace is established. In addition, a list for the prioritization of ramp inspections is compiled after SAFA data analysis. The EUROCONTROL Network Manager provides support by performing EC SAFA Safety List Alarming Function.

The Network Manager supports the European Union’s ACC3 (Air Cargo or Mail Carrier operating into the Union from a Third Country Airport) programme with its NM ACC3 Alerting System. Under this programme, air carriers that fly air cargo or mail into the EU from a non-EU airport are required to comply with the EU ACC3 programme for inbound cargo and mail.
