Air Safety Support International (ASSI) is a not-for-profit, wholly-owned, subsidiary company of the UK Civil Aviation Authority, established under Directions from the United Kingdom's Department for Transport.  The company's primary objective is to help provide a more cohesive system of civil aviation safety regulation in the United Kingdom Overseas Territories.

ASSI is responsible for supporting the Overseas Territories' existing authorities in the safety regulation of all aspects of civil aviation, including the licensing of personnel and the certification of aircraft, airlines, airports and air traffic control. In Territories where the civil aviation regulator does not have the resources to undertake the task themselves, then ASSI can be designated by the Governor to perform the civil aviation regulatory tasks on behalf of the Governor.
