The first recommended practices and standards dealing with measures of safety on the aviation risk were established during the Chicago convention of 7 December 1944 on international civil aviation.

These recommended practices and standards were adopted by the Council of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) on 29 Mai 1951 as Annex 14. ICAO contracting States have to conform to the provisions of Annex 14 and national regulations have to be in harmony with these ones for a minimum of compliance.
