• Organisations may hold an approval from Transport Canada Civil Aviation (TCCA) to maintain aircraft or components for aircraft that are registered on the Canadian Aircraft Register.

    A Bilateral Agreement between EU and Transport Canada Civil Aviation (TCCA) was signed on 2 February 2012.

    The Bilateral Agreement means that NAA’s in Europe will undertake the oversight of organisations that hold EASA Part 145 approval and TCCA CAR 571 and 573 Approval. This means that the UK CAA will undertake the oversight of those organisations where the main base is in the UK.

    Pre-Requisites

    Organisations must be based in the UK and hold:

    • A valid EASA Part 145 approval,
    • A current TCCA CAR 571/573 approval.

    How much does it cost?​

    Approvals are subject to an annual continuation fee detailed in the UK CAA Scheme of Charges therefore no charge is payable to UK CAA upon application for continuation.

    In the event of a discrepancy between the information here and the Official Record Series 5, CAA Scheme of Charges (Airworthiness, Noise Certification and Aircraft and Aircraft Engine Emissions), the Scheme of Charges takes precedence.

    Payments can be made by credit or debit card or by bank transfer or by a cheque made payable to the Civil Aviation Authority.

    How long will it take for my application to be processed?

    • The application will be processed by Applications & Approvals (A&A) and forwarded to the CAA Regional Office for review within 10 working days.

    How long is it valid for?

    Once granted, a TCCA Approval is valid for 24 months unless suspended, cancelled or revoked.

    Applicants should be aware that the TCCA may request suspension of the approval at any time if the conditions of approval are not met.
