Procedures established for the suspension, variation or revocation of an AOC or PAOC are as follows:
In the event of an Air Operator Certificate (AOC) holder becoming aware that their documentation is no longer valid or appropriate, it is encouraged that a request is put in writing for the Certificate to be revoked, suspended or varied as necessary.
In the event that action is taken by the CAA without the consent of the AOC or PAOC holder, Regulation 6 of the Civil Aviation Authority Regulations 1991 provides an appeal procedure. The reasons upon which the decision is based will be detailed in a notification letter.
Actions taken by the CAA will be justified by clear supporting evidence. In most cases, a gradual deterioration in competence is witnessed, often linked to failure on the operators part to address significant deficiencies.
The holder of a suspended Certificate may apply for the suspension to be lifted.
