Please note that, in the event of the UK leaving the EU without a negotiated agreement, some CAA website content and application forms may continue to carry the EASA logo or reference the EU or EASA rather than the UK CAA in the short term. These will be updated in due course following the UK’s departure from the EU. In the meantime, the guidance provided and the application forms accessed via the CAA website portal will continue to be valid.
In circumstances where you may be renewing at the same time as your BCAR section L licence, you
will be required to apply separately using the Application for Initial Issue, Amendment or Renewal of an Engineer
Licence (Form 19).
Note: If you are applying for a change of name and or nationality you will be required to supply evidence in support
of your request, e.g. change of name deed poll/marriage certificate/valid passport.
If you are applying for any other additional services the appropriate fee will also apply.
An additional fee will be payable if you wish your documents to be returned by
Full details are available in the current
Scheme of Charges (Personnel licensing).
When submitting applications or documentation via post/courier to the UK please ensure that you complete the import declaration on any package in the correct manner.
Please ensure that you enter the “Value” of the package content as zero/nil. Otherwise this will generate import duties in the UK which will be re-charged to you.”
While there is a fee for the CAA application process, this does not represent an importation value of the package content. Therefore the application fee should not be stated on the import declaration form that a candidate completes when posting supporting documents to CAA UK.
There have been a number of applications received from AML applicants applying for issue of an AML or for additional privileges to be added to an existing AML which have been rejected by the CAA due to, for example, lack of experience criteria. This has resulted in the CAA refunding 100% of the application charge paid even though CAA time has been
incurred to review the application in order to reach the rejection decision.
The CAA is required to recover its costs from those that have caused those costs to be incurred. Therefore, for applications received from 15 September 2016, the CAA will deduct £181 to recover the average costs of its application review, in respect of those applications that the CAA has rejected or where the applicant has withdrawn his/her
application before the CAA has completed its review.
This deduction is associated with applications in respect of AML activities under the UK Official Record Series 5 No. 334,
Personnel Licensing Scheme of Charges, para. 13.1 table 61 refs. a, c i), d and/or e. This action is in line with the
CAA Charges Waiver and Refund Policy.
