The CAA Medical Review announced in March has completed its initial work and reported back with a series of options to the CAA’s Executive Committee.
The Executive Committee has accepted these in principle and decided that it wishes to go out to consultation on some of the options which will involve changes to how medical services are provided.
The CAA will launch this stakeholder consultation in early September, which will then run for eight weeks.
No further information will be available until the launch of the consultation.
The UK co-hosted with EASA a European Panel on ‘Pilots and ATCOs with Insulin-Treated Diabetes’ on 27/28 February 2014. The meeting agenda and conclusions of the Panel can be found below.

The UK CAA has been advised by the German Authority (LBA) that, due to German national law concerning Data Protection, the LBA are unable to facilitate the transfer of pilot medical records from Germany to other States.
It is therefore not possible to proceed with transfers of State of Licence Issue from Germany (LBA) to the UK (UK CAA), or indeed any other state, as the whole certificatory medical record of pilots must be held by the state to which a licence is transferred.
Please note that German pilots’ licences are fully valid in all EASA member states.
