Skeleton Panel Brief
Regulation 15(2)(b) of the The Civil Aviation (Allocation of Scarce Capacity) Regulations 2007 requires the CAA to serve on every party a copy of, or a summary of, any information in the possession of the CAA which, has been provided in connection with the hearing, or which, in the CAA’s opinion, will be referred to at the hearing. The CAA has in the past chose to do this, in part, by producing a Panel Brief. This brief is generated from the evidence the CAA considers will be referred to at the hearing, and is prepared in advance of any hearing, once all written objections have been made and circulated to all parties. The CAA will normally also issue a Statement of Key Issues, if possible at least three working days before the hearing, to which it will expect parties to have regard at the hearing. In the case of the scarce capacity hearing for the route London-Kiev, the Statement of Key Issues was generated through the Panel Brief and circulated to parties at the same time as the Panel Brief.
