For approval of equipment to be installed in non-EASA aircraft, CAA Form AD 70, together with the appropriate fee, should be sent to Aircraft Certificates
and Approvals. Details of costs can be found in the CAA Scheme of Charges.
For approval of equipment to be installed in EASA aircraft, applications must be made directly to EASA.
CAP 747 - 'Mandatory Requirements for Airworthiness' contains

CAA has issued Light Aircraft Class 3 Equipment Approval LA301075 for Handheld Radios with 8.33kHz Channel Spacing Capability that
meet the identified clauses of ETSI Standard EN300 676-1.
We produced CAP 1391 in collaboration
with the GA community, which tells you the minimum specification you need to meet when manufacturing EC devices.
Your device can only legally be used on board an aircraft with an acknowledged declaration. When you manufacture an
EC device you have to fill in a declaration of capability and conformance. We will publish the
declaration for specific EC devices on our Electronic Conspicuity devices page.
Certain changes to your EC device require a new declaration of capability and conformance to be submitted, please
read the CAP 1391 for full details.
If it comes to our attention that there is an issue with your declaration or EC device we will contact you using the
details you have provided.
We have issued Light Aircraft Class 3 Equipment Approval LA301076 for Electronic Conspicuity (EC) devices that meet the technical
specification requirements of CAP 1391
