Performance based regulation means developing a comprehensive risk picture with the organisations we regulate and building our knowledge and data to make sure we target our regulation in the areas where it will make the biggest difference.
To transform the CAA into a Performance Based Regulator, working with industry to demonstrably reduce safety risk across the total aviation system and develop the capabilities required for future regulators.
The second PBR industry conference took place on 29 October 2015 at the Royal Aeronautical Society. An important element of the
conference was to hear industry’s views on our progress to date and whether our future work is appropriately focused to achieve the desired
Slides from the day are available below and include presentations from Rolls Royce, EASA, FAA and CANSO. A conference report is also
available which describes the outcomes of the conference based on conversations from the day and feedback provided by the delegates in the
post conference survey.
The transformation programme and what it means in practise was introduced to our industry stakeholders at a major conference at
the London Gatwick Hilton on 19 May 2014. Over 130 senior industry leaders and accountable managers from across the industry were in
attendance. The conference gave the delegates the opportunity to debate the concept and practicalities including the likely benefits and
the challenges to both the CAA and themselves.
A conference report has been produced which includes information about the proceedings and feedback from the industry delegates.
CAA International's series of white papers offer valuable insight into the UK CAA's journey to become a Performance-Based Regulator.
Previously published in the ICAO Journal, these papers explore some of the UK CAA's challenges and lessons learnt so far, and provide
expert guidance for National Aviation Authorities planning to enable Performance-Based Regulation.
Having received and considered the industry comments resulting from the May 2014 conference, and having consulted the CAA/Industry
Safety Improvement Advisory Group (SIAG), a PBR Industry Group was set up with representatives from across all sectors of the industry.
The aim of the group is to work collaboratively in addressing the issues arising from the conference, with particular emphasis on those
related to data sharing, competence in the industry and the regulator for delivering PBR, and benefits identification/realisation. The
group also addresses any emerging issues and opportunities encountered along our journey.
