Risks related to the group’s activities Risks linked to security



To prevent the occurrence of malevolent acts:  the Public Safety and Security department of the Airport Operations Executive Management monitors security obligations. It proposes the security policy and implementation conditions, and coordinates its deployment;  a plan to bolster security for the landside areas of its terminals has been shared and implemented with the competent Government departments since 2016;  Aéroport de Paris’ Operator Security Plan (PSO) has been updated in respect of its obligations as an Essential Services Operator ( OIV ) and should give rise to updated Protection Plans for each of the Company’s vital installations;  Public Security Studies (ESP) were conducted, in accordance with the Urbanism Code, as part of certain building or renovation projects;  lastly, confronted with the phenomenon of radicalisation in airports, awareness raising sessions on understanding, detecting and preventing radicalisation have been carried out for those personnel concerned since September 2016. The Company also has a crisis management system steered by the Risk Management & Compliance Division. As part of this framework, crisis exercises are carried out annually to improve the system’s effectiveness. In 2017, large scale “attacks in public areas” crisis exercises were organised at Paris-Charles de Gaulle and Paris-Orly airports. Each airport in the region Île-de-France has an airport safety certificate covering the organisation, operational procedures and infrastructures. The DGAC (French Civil Aviation Authority) controls and oversees all activities in this area and issues the airport security certificate. In 2017, the national certificates held by each of the airports were converted to the European standards. Thus, Paris- Charles de Gaulle, Paris-Orly and Paris-Le Bourget airports now hold a European Airport Safety Certificate in accordance with the requirements of ruling 139/2014. In application of the commitments made as part of the European certification, a Compliance Monitoring Manager was appointed within the new Airport Operations Executive Management. He ensures:  compliance of airports in the region Ile-de-France with airport safety legislation (adoption of regulatory changes, analysis and verification of compliance);  that Groupe ADP’s positions on this subject are carried to the DGAC. RISK MONITORING AND MANAGEMENT

In a context of increased terrorist threats, the group is exposed to malevolent acts perpetrated on its installations. Depending on their seriousness, the occurrence of malevolent acts could impact:  the integrity of persons (customers, employees, partners) and physical or virtual goods;  the level of air traffic and, consequently, revenue from airport retail, services and car parks;  security obligations: new French or European rules that could result in increased operational requirements or the enforcement of additional obligations. The national vigilance, prevention and protection plan against the terrorist threat (Vigipirate) is maintained at the “increased security-attack alert” level.

Risks linked to airport safety


The European Union and the French Government define the legal framework for airport safety. As an airport operator, Groupe ADP is required, notably to:  hold a European Airport Safety certificate for each of its platforms (see Community regulation no.139/2014 of 12 February 2014);  carry out the maintenance, development, surveillance and snow-removal in aeronautical areas;  provide an aircraft rescue and fire-fighting service (ARFF). Violation of these rules is likely to jeopardise the safety of air transport, prevent the operation of Ile-de-France region airports and engage the liability of Aéroports de Paris. This legal framework could also be strengthened, placing additional obligations on Aéroports de Paris.  implement a security management system;  provide an animal hazard prevention service;
