     Mission Statement

To develop, regulate and manage a secure aviation system, and provide adequate security services for the protection of all property and stakeholders in the aviation industry in Malta.

 
 
     Who we are
 
Aviation Security Malta (AVSEC), within the Ministry for Home Affairs and National Security, was originally set up as OMAS on 1st April 1995, as the regulator for aviation security in Malta.
 
Aviation Security Malta is the regulating body for aviation security in Malta, and has overall management and control in this area. 
 
AVSEC ensures that security activities are carried out in compliance with those international standards which Malta has adopted as a result of its membership in organisations such as the European Union (EU), the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) and the European Civil Aviation Conference (ECAC).
