About ICAO TRIP 2017
Setting the Standards for traveler identification and secure border management
The ICAO TRIP Symposium and Exhibition on ICAO Traveller Identification Programme (TRIP) will take place from 24 to 26 October 2017 at ICAO Headquarters in Montréal, Canada. The key point of the ICAO TRIP Strategy is a recognized need for a holistic and integrated approach to traveller identification management.
The Symposium will address the five elements of the ICAO TRIP Strategy, including machine readable travel documents (MRTDs) specifications and best practices for document issuance, identification management and related border security issues.
In line with UN Security Council Resolutions 2178 (2014) and 2309 (2016) that re-affirmed the importance of border controls to combat terrorism, the Symposium will provide an opportunity to enhance international cooperation and collaboration to address the threats faced by international civil aviation. This will be accomplished by promoting the global framework established by Annex 9 – Facilitation to the Convention on International Civil Aviation. Accordingly, the theme of this year's Symposium will highlight how to secure border integrity through border control management processes, including the implementation of an Advance Passenger Information (API) system.
ICAO recognizes the benefits of traveller identification management to aviation security and travel facilitation. ICAO's mission is to contribute to the capacity of Member States, under the "No Country Left Behind" objective, to uniquely identify individuals by providing tools and knowledge to establish and confirm the identity of travellers.
An exhibition will complement the Symposium, showcasing a broad range of products and services related notably to travel document security applications, border inspection and automated border control systems, and identity management.
