Industry Consultation Body

The Industry Consultation Body (ICB) was established under Article 6 of Regulation 549/2004, the SES Framework Regulation, with the strong support of all industry stakeholders. The group provides position papers and gives technical advice to the European Commission on the implementation of SES initiatives and legislation. It is an important mechanism for the definition of the future SES strategy and its implementation, and in 2014 the ICB produced the 'ICB Vision and Strategy' which was agreed by all members. It is an opportunity for all parts of industry (airspace users, ANSPs, airports, manufacturers, professional staff associations) to inform the European Commission what they expect from the Single European Sky and to give their views on SES initiatives through a proactive approach.

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