Please note that, in the event of UK participation in EASA and mutual recognition of licences and certificates ceasing, 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 outcome of the transition period negotiations on the long-term aviation relationship between the UK and the EU. In the meantime, the guidance provided and the application forms accessed via the CAA website portal will continue to be valid.
Organisations may hold an approval from Transport Canada Civil Aviation (TCCA) to maintain aircraft or components
for aircraft that are registered on the Canadian Aircraft Register.
A Bilateral Agreement between EU and Transport Canada Civil Aviation (TCCA) was signed on 2 February 2012.
The Bilateral Agreement means that NAA’s in Europe will undertake the oversight of organisations that hold EASA Part
145 approval and TCCA CAR 571 and 573 Approval. This means that the UK CAA will undertake the oversight of those
organisations where the main base is in the UK.
Organisations must be based in the UK and hold:
See the Official Record Series 5, CAA Scheme of Charges (Airworthiness, Noise Certification and Aircraft and Aircraft Engine Emissions).
If the number of hours taken by the CAA to carry out its investigations in relation to the application exceeds the
cost shown above, the applicant must pay an excess hourly charge. The CAA shall determine the excess hourly charge by
taking the total number of excess hours taken by the CAA to complete the required investigations in relation to the
application and multiplying that number of hours by an hourly charge, currently £209. The
balance for the excess hourly charge (total hourly charge less initial charge already paid) is payable by the applicant
to the CAA and will be invoiced to the applicant.
Payments can be made by credit or debit card or by bank transfer or by a cheque made payable to the Civil Aviation
Once granted, a TCCA Approval is valid for 24 months unless suspended, cancelled or revoked.
Applicants should be aware that TCCA may request suspension of the approval at any time if the conditions of the
approval are not met.
