I agree with Groot.

It is part yours. As it is edited more and more, perhaps you'll agree with us. :)

Lawtonia agrees with Mikitivity and Groot Gouda - Although there were a number of us that chipped in ideas for this proposal, Tycholand, you were the first to add some structure to the ideas. :wave:

This is what we have so far:

<blockquote class='quote_blockquote'><dl><dt>Quote:</dt><dd>&nbsp;</dd></dl><div>
The Civil Transportation Safety Act

WHEREAS certain civil water voyages, civil space flights and civil flights originate, pass through, pass above or terminate at different nations, and

FURTHERMORE citizens from third nations are often aboard these craft,

AWARE that these craft often cross into international waters, international airspace or beyond the stratosphere, and

RECOGNISING that the safety of those aboard and on land are the concern of the nations where the craft departs from, travels above, travels through, arrives at and passengers hold citizenship of, and

AWARE that safety is a shared responsibility of all parties.

THEREFORE, in the interests of promoting international travel, trade and, most of all, safety by air, space and water, the NationStates United Nations

RESOLVES that the safety of civil craft travelling through water, air and space between or above one or more nations is the responsibility of the United Nations Civil Transportation Authority (UNCTA).

1. The United Nations Civil Transportation Authority shall create and publicise safety standards regarding travel by civilian watercraft, civilian aircraft and civilian spacecraft between UN nations; this includes any non-governmental freight-carriers. These technical standards shall be created by experts under the direction of the UNCTA and may include such items as:

* type, number and position of lifeboats
* docking, refuelling and other port procedures
* number, length and position of runways or launch pads
* type, number and procedures for air traffic control and navigational aids
* baggage, on-board crew, on-ground crew and passenger screening procedures
* type and number of on-ground and in-flight fire fighting equipment
* number and arrangement seating and storage compartments
* flight crew training, staffing numbers and certification
* type and storage of fuel
* what constitutes a major modification or an emergency.

2. These standards shall be reviewed at least every two-and-a-half years, and may be reviewed earlier in response to transportation mishaps or technological advances.

3. At least every two years and after every major modification, the UNCTA will certify which ports, airports, spaceports, watercraft, aircraft and spacecraft are in compliance with its regulations. The UNCTA will maintain a list of all applications for the certification of watercraft, aircraft, spacecraft, ports, airports and spaceports. The positive or negative results of these applications shall be made available to all nations and citizens.

4. Each certified and uncertified craft on an international trip must file a plan with every nation along its proposed route. Any nation along a route may deny certified or uncertified craft free passage through national waters/national air(space), or docking rights, or both, with exception during emergency landings or dockings. This denial may apply generally or on a case by case basis. Where an uncertified craft has been denied passage, landing or both, no retaliatory denial against the denying nation may be levelled. Certified craft may not be denied passage or landing once underway, except during a UNCTA emergency or when the craft has been denien entrance before the journey has started.

5. The UNCTA status, which is how well each port complies with the regulations, of each port, airport and spaceport shall be available to UN nations and citizens. Any nation or individual port, airport or spaceport authority may deny landing rights to an uncertified craft. This denial may apply generally or on a case by case basis.

6. In an emergency, UNCTA certified craft may attempt to dock or land at any civilian or military port, airport or spaceport after following UNCTA procedures for notifying the proper authorities of such an emergency.

7. Following a successful docking or landing at a civilian facility, the receiving nation or authority may recoup its expenses. Costs, based on UNCTA rates, shall be paid by the owner of the craft or the nation in which it is based.

8. Following an unsuccessful docking or landing at a civilian facility, the receiving nation or authority may recoup its losses and expenses based on the cost of reconstruction, indemnification for injury and loss of life, and expenses incurred until the crash. Costs shall be paid by the owner of the craft or the nation in which it is based.

9. Following a successful docking or landing at a military facility, the receiving nation may impound the craft and its cargo, and levy a charge no greater than the cost of the craft which made the emergency landing. Neither crew nor passengers may imprisoned for this act.

10. Following an unsuccessful docking or landing at a military facility, the receiving nation may impound the craft and its cargo, and levy a charge no greater than ten times the cost of the craft which crashed, plus indemnification for injury and loss of life. Costs shall be paid by the owner of the craft or the nation in which it is based.

11. A civil craft may not be intentionally damaged or destroyed by military means once it broadcasts its UNCTA emergency status. The owner of the craft of the nation in which it is based may levy a charge no greater than ten times the cost of the craft which was destroyed, plus indemnification for injury and loss of life against the violator of this provision.

12. The UNCTA will also compile and publicise a list of civilian freight and passenger transportation owners whose craft or facilities have often unsuccessfully sought certification. This list will exclude companies whose craft or facilities would fail the UNCTA certification process but have not applied for certification.

I suggst combining articles 7-10 into one article. Maybe something like:
<blockquote class='quote_blockquote'><dl><dt>Quote:</dt><dd>&nbsp;</dd></dl><div>
7. Following a succesfull or unsuccesfull emergency landing/docking at a port, the carrier most pay a reasonable, by UNCTA-determined, sum of money to the port.

The positive or negative results of these applications shall be made available to all nations and citizens.
