However, the regulatory process with regard to aviation environmental law started with the international civil aviation organization. /9: 2006. 17 Article 9. 18 Article 44(a). 19 Article 44(d). 20 Article 44(n). 21 Article 44(i). 22 Article 37(b). 40 2 General Principles of Environmental Law and Regulation when the Organization adopted Standards and Recommended Practices to Annex 16 to the Chicago Convention on the subject of aircraft noise.
