ICB - Industrial Consultation Body

The Industry Consultation Body (ICB) has been created by the Single European Sky legislation with the strong support of stakeholders and provides technical advice to the European Commission on the implementation. It is an important mechanism for the definition of the future ATM strategy and its implementation. It is an opportunity for all parts of industry to tell the European Commission what they expect from the Single European Sky and to give their views on options and timetables.

The Commission intends to use the advice of the ICB to steer not only the legislative initiatives, but also the standardization, research and infrastructure investments of the Commission.
