At 23:00 on 31 December 2020 the UK left the European Union aviation system, and as such is no longer part of European Union aviation institutions, including the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). At the end of the UK/EU Agreement transitional period, the Withdrawal Acts brought all EU law that was in force and applicable at that point under UK jurisdiction; further information is available here.
Regarding the Standardised European Rules of the Air (SERA) Regulation, this is now the law as retained (and amended in UK domestic law) under the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018. The supporting Acceptable Means of Compliance and Guidance Material that were published by EASA and in force on 31 Dec 2021 have been adopted by the CAA. Both the UK SERA Regulation and the AMC and GM are available here.
The UK’s Air Navigation Order and Rules of the Air Regulations are replicated within CAP393.
Permissions, authorisations and exemptions relating to both SERA and the UK Rules of the Air are found in the List of Official Record Series Publications series under ORS4.
The CAA is establishing a rulemaking and policy development process to address any changes to legislation, Acceptable Means of Compliance or Guidance material caused by changes to the 'parent' ICAO material, or any other requirement to amend the content of SERA content.
A number of our publications are linked to the Rules of the Air Regulations and SERA:
