Aviareto, a joint venture between SITA and the Irish Government, has a contract with the International Civil Aviation Authority (ICAO) to establish and operate the International Registry as required by the Cape Town Treaty. The company draws on the joint strengths of SITA and the Irish aviation sector.

What we do

As part of the implementation process for the Cape Town Treaty, the Secretary General of ICAO issued a global tender in January 2004 for an organisation to establish, and act as Registrar for, the International Registry. Aviareto, based in Dublin, was selected for the undertaking. Aviareto is performing these functions on a not for profit, cost recovery basis, as required by the Cape Town Convention.

Aviareto is required to operate the International Registry pursuant to the Convention and Protocol in line with the Regulations and Procedures and using the best practices in current use in the field of electronic registry design and operation.


The International Registry

The International Registry of Mobile Assets defines the priority of interests on airframes, aircraft engines and helicopters. The International Registry permits individuals and organisations to register financial interest in assets using the MSN (manufacturer’s serial number). Its role is to electronically record international interests in aircraft objects, thereby establishing priority of interests.

The International Registry operates under the legal framework of the Cape Town Convention and the Aircraft Protocol adopted on the 16th of November 2001 at Cape Town.

Our primary mission is to support the effectiveness of the Cape Town Convention and Aircraft Protocol by efficiently operating the International Registry in collaboration with the Industry.
