Global Reporting Format (GRF) for Runway Surface Conditions - Air Navigation Service Providers: Online

Partner-ICAO Course


Get to know the fundamental changes in the new reporting system related to the introduction of Runway Condition Code (RWYCC) and enable flight crew assessment of takeoff and landing performances based upon the reported runway surface condition. The Global Reporting Format (GRF) for Runway Surface Condition Assessment and Reporting will be applicable as of 4 November 2021.

The GRF is a globally harmonized methodology that is intended to be the only reporting format for international aviation, with the objective of reducing runway excursions. Through collaboration between IATA, ICAO and CANSO, this online course is specifically designed to meet the training requirements for air traffic controllers and aeronautical information service staff as outlined in ICAO Circular 355 (Assessment, Measurement and Reporting of Runway Surface Conditions) and ICAO Doc 10064 (Aeroplane Performance Manual [APM]).
